No. 1 UConn women end Baylor home streak, 66-55

WACO, Texas (AP) - Breanna Stewart had 18 points and 11 rebounds as top-ranked Connecticut won 66-55 at No. 7 Baylor, ending the Lady Bears' national-best 69-game home winning streak Monday night.

In a matchup of the last two national champions, defending champ UConn (18-0) held on to win its closest game this season. The Huskies had beaten their first five ranked opponents by an average margin of 22 points, and nobody had finished within 17 of them.

Baylor (14-2) hadn't lost at home since a 70-54 defeat to Texas in its regular-season home finale March 7, 2010. Senior starters Odyssey Sims, the national scoring leader, and Makenzie Robertson, the daughter of coach Kim Mulkey, had never lost a game in the Ferrell Center.

The Huskies have two of the five longest home winning streaks in women's basketball, their record of 99 snapped two years ago and an earlier 69-game streak.
