Fourth-ranked Women’s Basketball hosts top-10 matchup against Baylor

No. 4 Women's Basketball vs. No. 6 Baylor Sunday, Jan. 17 at the Frank Erwin Center 2:30 p.m. – GET YOUR TICKETS

The eyes of the nation focus upon the Frank Erwin Center on Sunday, when fourth-ranked and undefeated Women's Basketball hosts No. 6 Baylor at 2:30 p.m. The game, televised by ESPN2, features the first top-10 matchup at the Erwin Center since the Longhorns hosted and defeated No. 4 Tennessee in November 2014.

Karen Aston and the squad currently sit atop the Big 12 standings as the only team to start conference play with a 4-0 record.

In a dominant run to begin the season, Texas has defeated three ranked opponents, trailed at halftime only once and have held all but two opponents below 40 percent shooting. Texas' 4-0 start to conference play is the program's best since winning its first five league games in 2002-03, when the Longhorns advanced to the Final Four in Atlanta.

The Longhorns play at Kansas on Wednesday.
