Baylor 91, West Virginia 51

WACO, Texas - Moon Ursin had a career-high 22 points to lead five players in double figures for No. 2 Baylor, and the Lady Bears set a new Big 12 record by winning their 45th straight regular season conference game, 91-51 over No. 17 West Virginia.

The defending national champion Lady Bears (15-1, 4-0 Big 12) had matched their own record with their 44th win in a row three days earlier at Kansas. They scored the first five points against West Virginia (13-3, 3-2) and never trailed.

The Lady Bears also extended the nation's longest home winning streak to 49 in a row, half of the 98 by then-No. 1 UConn had until Baylor won there on Jan. 9.

Juicy Landrum had 14 points for Baylor, while Te'a Cooper had 11. NaLyssa Smith had 10 points and 10 rebounds for her 10th career double double. Queen Egbo added 10 points, and Lauren Cox had 13 rebounds.

Kysre Gondrezick had 15 points for West Virginia, which shot only 26.2% from the field (17 of 65), and that was boosted by making 8-of-19 in the fourth quarter. Madisen Smith scored 12 points.

Baylor's last regular-season Big 12 loss was at home to Texas on Feb. 6, 2017, a setback the Lady Bears avenged in Austin only two weeks later. They are coming off consecutive 18-0 Big 12 records, and also had consecutive undefeated conference records and a national title during their 44 in a row from 2011 until January 2014.
