College Basketball Notebook: Oregon women end UConn's 66-game campus winning streak
Ruthy Hebard had 22 points and 12 rebounds and No. 3 Oregon handed fourth-ranked UConn its first loss on campus in seven years, rolling to a 74-56 victory on Monday night.
It was UConn's worst home loss since Dec. 5, 2005, when the Huskies lost to North Carolina by 23 points.
Sabrina Ionescu added 10 points, nine rebounds and nine assists for the Ducks (20-2), falling short of increasing her NCAA-record 23 triple-doubles.
The much-anticipated matchup didn't live up to the hype as the Ducks ran past the Huskies, disappointing the sellout crowd. UConn had won 66 straight games on campus and hadn't lost since falling to Notre Dame on Jan. 5, 2013.
Baylor tops K-State for 19th straight win
Jared Butler scored 20 points and No. 1 Baylor extended its school-record winning streak to 19 games, beating Kansas State 73-65 on Monday night in Manhattan, Kansas.
MaCio Teague added 15 points and Davion Mitchell scored 13 for the Bears (20-1, 9-0 Big 12), who are off to the best start in league play by any Big 12 team since 2011.
NO. 3 KANSAS 69, TEXAS 58: Center Udoka Azubuike didn't start, but came off the bench to score 17 points on 8-of-10 shooting and grabbed 12 rebounds with two blocks while playing 25 minutes vs. the Longhorns.
Azubuike, according to ESPN’s announcing crew, got into a “dust up” with coach Bill Self at the end of Saturday’s victory over Texas Tech — a game in which the big man had just five points and eight boards — and gave way to David McCormack in the starting lineup for Monday’s game despite apparently being healthy and ready to go.
NO. 8 FLORIDA STATE 65, NORTH CAROLINA 59: Patrick Williams had 14 points and nine rebounds as the Seminoles won their 19th straight home game.
