Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Nina Davis scored 15 of her 20 points in the second half, helping third-ranked Baylor beat Texas 70-68 on Sunday for its 21st straight victory.

Davis also blocked a driving shot by Brooke McCarty just before the final buzzer to preserve the victory.

Guard Niya Johnson added 17 points for Baylor (22-1 11-0 Big 12), one more than forward Imani Wright. Center Kelsey Lang led Texas with 20 and 11 rebounds. Guard Brady Sanders scored 14.

Davis grabbed an offensive rebound and made a put-back with 3:55 remaining to give Baylor a nine-point lead.

But Texas (15-7, 4-7 Big) closed in on the Lady Bears with back-to-back 3-pointers by McCarty and Sanders, the latter cutting the deficit to four with 1:17 remaining.

Then Johnson turned the ball over, leading to a short bank shot by Texas' Brianna Taylor that left Baylor leading by two points.
