Rebecca Woodberry's three-point shooting helped the short-handed San Jose State women's basketball team take a stunning 23-18 lead midway through the first half at ninth-ranked Baylor before the Spartans' upset bid was dashed in a 113-73 loss on Tuesday night.
"Short-handed is us," said first-year SJSU coach Jamie Craighead, whose team had just eight players in uniform against a Lady Bears team that won its 64th straight at home.
"It's going to be us for a while, so we've got to play through that. Really for me, it was about playing a team that we know can defend and score. And I thought if we could maybe come out of the game scoring 70 to 80 points, we could take something away from this game."
San Jose State (4-4) saw its early lead erased when Baylor (7-0) went on a 14-0 run in less than 3 minutes. Woodberry finished with 19 points, while Classye James had 17.
Arizona 79, Texas Tech 58: Freshman Aaron Gordon of San Jose scored 19 point for the No. 2 Wildcats (8-0).
Duke 79, Michigan 69: Quinn Cook had 24 points and nine assists, and the No. 10 Blue Devils regrouped from last week's loss against Arizona.
