Baylor 66, Texas Christian 57

FORT WORTH, Texas - Queen Egbo and Te'a Cooper each had 14 points and No. 2 Baylor held on for a hard-fought 66-57 win over TCU. The Lady Bears extended their record Big 12 regular-season winning streak to 46 games.

Baylor (16-1, 5-0 Big 12), playing without leading scorer NaLyssa Smith because of a sprained right ankle, went into the fourth quarter down a point before scoring eight straight.

Egbo, who started in place of Smith, put Baylor ahead with the quarter-starting basket that made it 46-45. The 8-0 spurt included a basket by Cooper that was changed from a 2-pointer to a 3-pointer after a replay review during a timeout several minutes later.

Lauren Cox had 11 points for Baylor, which also has won 38 consecutive Big 12 road games, second only to No. 3 UConn's streak of 49 conference wins in a row. DiDi RIchards and Juicy Landrum both had 10 points.

Kianna Ray had 16 points with four 3-pointers to lead TCU (13-4, 4-2), which had its three-game winning streak snapped. Jayde Woods had 13 points and Lauren Heard 11.

Baylor led 25-14 with 6:08 left in the first half after Cooper's pass inside to Egbo for a easy layup. But TCU then had an 11-0 run, only the second time this season a team had that many consecutive points against the Lady Bears, who have had 28 double-digit runs of their own.

Jaycee Bradley's 3-pointer started the TCU run, and Ray's second 3 in the spurt tied the game at 25 before Baylor took a 30-26 halftime lead.

Heard's three-point play at the end of the third quarter gave the Frogs their only lead after halftime.
