Texas’ treys doom Baylor

February 27, 2003


— The best seems to come out in Heather Schreiber when Texas plays Baylor.

She tied her season high with 23 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead the 10th-ranked Longhorns (20-5, 13-1 Big 12 Conference) to a 79-57 victory Wednesday over the Bears (17-9, 6-8).

Schreiber also scored 23 points last month in a 70-50 victory over Baylor and set her career high of 28 points last season against the Lady Bears.

"I really didn't think I would get that many opportunities tonight after what I did last time," she said. "But we reversed the ball very well and knocked down our shots."

Schreiber connected on nine of 15 shots, including three of four three-pointers. As a team, the Longhorns were 9-of-13 on three-pointers.

"This team can shoot the ball," Texas coach Jody Conradt said. "One stat that stands out tonight is our 23 assists. When you get good ball movement and get into the flow of the game, it sets up a lot of good three-point looks."

Steffanie Blackmon led Baylor with 20 points. Jamie Carey added 15 points, and Kala Bowers contributed 13.

"This Texas team could have beaten a lot of folks tonight," Baylor coach Kim Mulkey-Robertson said.
