In the postseason, UConn, an 11-time national champion, lost in overtime during the last two national semifinals, ESPN reported.
"Listen, we're all chasing (UConn coach) Geno (Auriemma), let's be real," Baylor coach Kim Mulkey told reporters after the game. "I didn't know it was a first. I don't coach like that. I just want to win the next game."
Kalani Brown led Baylor with 22 points and 17 rebounds.
