Casey Morris scored 13 points to lead host Texas Tech to a 56-45 win over top-ranked Baylor yesterday.

Fans swarmed the court to celebrate the win, the Lady Raiders' second over a Top 25 team in the past week.

"I think we upped our resume today," Texas Tech coach Kristy Curry said.

The win avenged a loss in Lubbock last year when Brittney Griner was ejected for punching a Texas Tech player.

"I don't think we ever had a doubt from the beginning," Morris said. "I think we know we can beat Texas A&M. We know we can beat Baylor - we know we can beat anybody when we play as good as we can."

Griner had 15 points to lead Baylor (24-2, 11-1).

Connecticut 78, Notre Dame 57: Bria Hartley scored 29 points for host No. 2 UConn. Maya Moore added 12 points and seven rebounds for the Huskies (26-1, 13-0 Big East), who have won 14 straight since their 90-game winning streak ended at Stanford on Dec. 30.-
