Stat of the Game: FT Shooting: UConn 2-3, Baylor 16-18

Summary: You know the old saying, "Close, but not close enough"...well that fits tonight to a T. The Huskies came oh so close to defeating #1 and undefeated Baylor in Waco tonight as they led with almost 4mins. to go, but couldn't maintain enough scoring to pull out the win as they eventually gave up the lead and ultimately lost the nail-bitter to the Lady Bears, 66-61. UConn All-American candidate So. G Bria Hartley did everything she could scoring 25pts. and Fr. W Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis added 15pts. (most in the 1st half), but it wasn't enough to overcome Baylor's All-American Jr. C Brittney Griner's 25pts., 9rebs., and 9blks. and All-American candidate So. G Odyssey Sims' 23pts.
