The Baylor women completed the second half of a historic doubleheader at the Ferrell Center in Waco with a 76-56 victory over Nebraska.
Saturday marked the first time both the Baylor men, ranked 25th, and the women, ranked sixth, played on the same day as ranked teams. The Baylor men didn't capitalize on history, losing to Oklahoma 77-71.
The Lady Bears' next game is Wednesday against Texas, which routed Missouri 67-37 Saturday and has found its groove after a slow start.
Saturday's victory was not without an anxious moment for the Lady Bears. Nebraska (15-5, 4-2) led 16-6 early. Once Baylor (18-1, 6-0) surged in front, 19-18, it never trailed again. The Lady Bears have won 11 in a row and 13 in a row at home.
Nebraska is no slouch, having beaten Texas A&M 73-60 and Texas 56-45. But the Cornhuskers trailed Baylor 43-31 at halftime and then fell behind 52-33.
