Griner, No. 1 Baylor women beat No. 2 UConn 66-61
Griner scores 25 points, Sims 23 for No. 1 Baylor in 66-61 win over No. 2 UConn
By The Associated Press

WACO, Texas (AP) ' Brittney Griner scored 12 of 25 points in the closing run that pushed top-ranked Baylor past No. 2 Connecticut 66-61 on Sunday night.

The Lady Bears (11-0) won their second No. 1 vs. No. 2 game this season while avenging a one-point loss at Connecticut early last season when the rankings were reversed.

Griner also had nine rebounds and nine blocked shots. She made all seven of her free throws, six of them coming in a game-ending 27-11 run as Baylor overcome its biggest deficit of the season. The 6-foot-8 Griner missed eight free throws in last year's game against the Huskies, including some key misses down the stretch.



Odyssey Sims had 23 points for the Lady Bears, whose 29-game home winning streak includes a 94-81 win over then-No. 2 Notre Dame in November.

Bria Hartley led Connecticut (9-1) with 25 points, while Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis had 15.
