WACO, Texas — The top-ranked Baylor women are finally getting their long-awaited rematch against Texas A&M.

They play Saturday for the first time since the Aggies won in an NCAA regional final between the Big 12 rivals last March. Texas A&M, which had already lost three games that season against the Lady Bears, won 58-46 to advance to its first Final Four and then won the national title.

The Lady Bears (24-0) are the only remaining undefeated men's or women's team in major college basketball. They have won a school-record 36 consecutive home games.

Baylor coach Kim Mulkey says she believes this will be the last trip to Waco for 15th-ranked Texas A&M (17-5), which is leaving the Big 12 for the SEC after this season.
