Brittney Griner scored 25 points and nearly notched a triple double as the No. 1 Lady Bears surged in the second half to topple No. 2 Connecticut, 66-61, Sunday night at the Ferrell Center. Odyssey Sims added 23 points while Griner was only one block and one rebound away from the triple double.
After a UConn bucket seven minutes into the second half pushed its lead to 50-39, the Lady Bears scored 10 straight points as part of a 16-4 run that gave them a 55-54 lead. The Huskies briefly grabbed a 56-55 lead with a pair of free throws, but Terran Condrey’s 3-pointer allowed Baylor to retake a 58-56 advantage. Baylor did not trail after Condrey’s basket.
