WACO, TX (FOX 44) — It’s not often the Baylor Women’s Basketball team trails by double digits in an NCAA Tournament game. It’s even less often that they have to stage a double digit comeback to get out of the first round.

As was the case in the Seattle Regional 3 as the No. 7 Baylor Bears came back from down as much as 18, tied for the third-largest comeback in NCAAW Tournament history, to take down the No. 10 Alabama Lady Crimson Tide, 78-74.

Alabama pounced early and cashed in on virtually every shot they took in the first quarter, storming out to a 22-4 lead in the opening period.

The lid came off the basket in the second quarter, for both teams. Despite Baylor outscoring Alabama 26-19 to close out the first half, Brittany Davis kept the Lady Crimson Tide afloat with 22 first-half points to take an 11-point lead into the break.

The third quarter belonged almost entirely to Baylor. A 12-0 run brought the Bears within a point of Alabama.

Baylor kept plugging away, using the three ball to their advantage. Baylor knocked down 13 three balls, including seven from Ja’Mee Asberry, both Baylor postseason records.

Asberry finished the game with the most points she’s scored in a single game in a Baylor uniform with 26 on the night.

The Bears never quit, and used a 9-0 run to take a three-point lead in the fourth quarter.

After Davis tied the game with a three pointer, Alabama took the lead with an and-one opportunity converted by Jada Rice to take a three-point lead of their own.

From there, Baylor went 6/7 from the free throw line to seal the deal and move on to a date with No. 2 UCONN in the Round of 32.
