AUSTIN, Texas — Anyone who wonders why coaches stress the need for their teams to put together “four strong quarters” need only watch Friday’s game between the Texas women’s basketball team and No. 2/1 Baylor. After heading to the locker room trailing the Bears by just five points, the Longhorns were outscored, 23-5, in the third quarter, leading to a 64-44 home loss at the Frank Erwin Center.

The setback dropped UT’s record to 14-7 overall and 6-3 in Big 12 games, while Baylor improved to 19-1 overall and 8-0 in games against conference opponents.
