A year ago, amidst a winning streak that would eventually extend to a staggering 90 games, the Huskies were pushed to the brink by Baylor, narrowly escaping with a 65-64 win.
After building a 44-29 lead early in the second half, the Huskies went cold, and Baylor made a charge to regain the lead, mounting a 27-4 run.
With 6:51 remaining, the Bears held a 56-48 advantage and seemed poised to snap the Huskies' streak at 79. But in the ensuing moments, Maya Moore and Bria Hartley carried the Huskies and managed to bring them all the way back, tying the game at 60 with 2:46 to play.
Over the final minutes, both teams struggled to score, but the Huskies managed to build a one-point advantage.
And in the final seconds, after a controversial no-call on a potential shot clock violation against the Huskies, the Bears resorted to a half-court heave that missed the mark, giving the Huskies the 65-64 win at home.
This year should provide plenty of intensity and drama as well, as the Bears look to even the score.
