Women’s Top 25 roundup: Balanced attack leads No. 18 Baylor over No. 22 West Virginia

"darianna littlepage"

No. 18 Baylor weathered No. 22 West Virginia’s suffocating defense long enough to prevail 65-58 on Saturday in Waco, Texas.

Four players scored double-figures for the host Bears (18-5, 7-5 Big 12), who improved to 5-1 this season against ranked opponents. Darianna Littlepage-Buggs led the quartet with 14 points, Bella Fontleroy and Aijha Blackwell added 12 apiece and Dre’una Edwards tacked on 10.

Baylor held on despite committing three late turnovers and limited itself with 19 giveaways against a West Virginia defense that entered Saturday ranked second in Division I with 24.7 takeaways per game.

Kyah Watson paired 12 points with her game-high 15 rebounds for the Mountaineers (20-3, 9-3), whose seven-game winning streak was snapped.

No. 25 Princeton 67, Penn 54

The Tigers secured five of their 27 takeaways in the fourth quarter and shut down the Quakers late to pull away in an Ivy League matchup at the Palestra in Philadelphia.

Kaitlyn Chen scored 20 points on 8-of-14 shooting and Chet Nweke chipped in 17 on her 6-of-8 clip as Princeton (18-3, 8-0 Ivy League) won its 13th straight game. Chen and Nweke each scored seven points in the fourth quarter as the Tigers held Penn without a bucket for more than five minutes until Marianna Papazoglou’s layup with 33 seconds to play made it 65-54.

Ese Ogbevire tallied a career-high 16 points for the Quakers (11-10, 3-5), who trailed 48-46 early in the fourth quarter before being outscored 19-8 over the game’s final 9:13. Jordan Obi led Penn with 17 points and nine boards. The Quakers tallied seven takeaways and were outscored 28-2 in points off turnovers.
