WACO, Texas The Lady Bears earned a historic win for the program Thursday night and here's how they did it.
The sellout crowd of 10,284 did their part...
And the Lady Bears did theirs. The UConn Huskies are the blueprint for women's college basketball success. 11 national championships. A trip to the final four in each of the last 11 seasons. But perfection is impossible, and Baylor was happy they could give them that reminder Thursday night.
AURIEMMA: "You're allowed to get beat every once in a while. What fun would it be if you won all the time? People sometimes get this impression at UConn that we have this magic dust and all of our kids are perfect players, they're great students and they shoot the ball great, and every time we shoot it, it goes in and it's just a matter of how much we're going to win by. It's not as easy as we make it look at times."
DiDi Richards can't be credited enough with the defensive effort against Katie Lou Samuelson. Juicy Landrum started the momentum with some threes. Chloe Jackson missed 11 of her first 13 shots, but had eight assists, seven rebounds and four steals. Lauren Cox rejected five UConn shots, and Kalani Brown scored game-highs of 22 points and 17 rebounds.
BROWN: "If we play every game like that, there's no telling where we might end up -- tournament play, Big 12 play."
