The Kansas women's basketball team snapped an 18-game losing streak to Baylor that dated back to 2014 on Wednesday night, knocking off the No. 4 team in the country, 87-66 at Allen Fieldhouse.

Senior center Taiyanna Jackson, who scored her 1,000th career point in the win, finished the game with 27 points and 19 rebounds. Freshman S'Mya Nichols added 22 points and senior guard Holly Kersgieter scored 19, with each shooting 8-of-14 from the floor in the victory.

The win was historic — just the third in program history over a top-5 opponent — and it moved KU to 8-7 overall and 1-3 in Big 12 play while coming on a much-needed night in the absolute perfect way.

We'll have more on the victory soon, but here's a look back at some of the action.
