WACO, Texas (AP) Queen Egbo had another double-double and No. 7 Baylor rebounded from its first loss in nearly a year. The defending national champion Lady Bears now have a long break - from playing games.
“You give them some days off and then you come back and you work and just get after each other," coach Kim Mulkey said. “Sometimes playing against each other is your best games. We’ll scrimmage and do things and put in some tweaks here and there and watch film and just get better."
Egbo, getting more extensive playing time without preseason AP All-America post Lauren Cox out because of a foot injury, had 20 points and 11 rebounds for her fourth double-double in six games in a 72-38 win over Georgia on Wednesday.
