Waco, Texas (ap) — Breanna Stewart had 18 points and 11 rebounds as top-ranked Connecticut won 66-55 at No. 7 Baylor, ending the Lady Bears’ national-best 69-game home winning streak Monday night.

In a matchup of the last two national champions, defending champ UConn (18-0) held on to win its closest game this season. The Huskies had beaten their first five ranked opponents by an average margin of 22 points, and nobody had finished within 17 of them.

Baylor (14-2) hadn’t lost at home since a 70-54 defeat to Texas in its regular-season home finale March 7, 2010. Senior starters Odyssey Sims, the national scoring leader, and Makenzie Robertson, the daughter of coach Kim Mulkey, had never lost a game in the Ferrell Center.

Men’s Top 25

No. 2 Syracuse 69 Boston College 59

Boston — Trevor Cooney scored 21 points, Jerami Grant added 16 and No. 2 Syracuse fought off pesky Boston College.

C.J. Fair and Tyler Ennis each had 12 points for the Orange (17-0, 4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference). Grant added eight rebounds for Syracuse, one of four unbeaten teams in Division I.

Lonnie Jackson scored 18 points — all on 3-pointers — for the Eagles (5-12, 1-3), Ryan Anderson had 14 and Olivier Hanlan finished with 13 points and six assists.

No. 23 Duke 69, Virginia 65

Durham, n.c. — Rasheed Sulaimon hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 18.8 seconds left and No. 23 Duke beat Virginia.

Sulaimon finished with a season-high 21 points and Rodney Hood added 14 for the Blue Devils (13-4, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference).

Debuting at their lowest ranking since the last time they fell out of the AP Top 25 in February 2007, they let an 11-point lead with 3½ minutes slip away before avoiding a third loss in four games.

Malcolm Brogdon scored 17 points and Joe Harris added 15 for the Cavaliers (12-5, 3-1).
