Here’s All The Streaks UT Women’s BBall Snapped vs. Baylor
Karen Aston and the Texas Longhorns Women’s Basketball Team affected so many streaks on Monday night.
The Longhorns’ 85-79 victory over the #2-ranked Baylor Bears gave Karen Aston her first victory over the Bears. It also extended Texas’ winning streak to 17 games, while giving the Horns confidence that they can hang with top women’s teams.
Earlier in the year, Texas lost to top-ranked teams South Carolina, Mississippi State, Stanford, and UConn. But, Texas decided the UConn game was enough. They have not lost since then.
There are some big tests looming, including yet another top-ranked non-conference opponent, Florida State. But, after the Longhorns and Karen Aston finally beat Baylor, it’s time to look at all the streaks that were snapped or extended in this game.
