Baylor 72, Georgia 38

WACO, Texas - Queen Egbo had 20 points and 11 rebounds as No. 7 Baylor rebounded from its first loss in nearly a year with a 72-38 win over Georgia.

The defending national champion Lady Bears (8-1) had won 36 in a row overall before their loss Saturday night to then-No. 5 South Carolina at a tournament in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

NaLyssa Smith added 15 points and Te'a Cooper had her eighth consecutive double-figure scoring game with 11 points for Baylor, which extended its home winning streak to 45 games. The Lady Bears have also won 55 consecutive home games against non-conference teams since a loss to UConn in January 2014.

Maya Caldwell and Gabby Connally both had had 11 points for Georgia (6-3), which had a three-game winning streak snapped.

With Baylor playing its last game for two weeks, coach Kim Mulkey used all 10 of her available players. All but one played at least 13 minutes.

The Lady Bears broke an early 5-all tie and went ahead to stay with a 10-2 run capped by Juicy Landrum's 3-pointer. They also scored the final 10 points of the second quarter, taking a 39-20 halftime lead on a 3 by Moon Ursin.
