The Stars suffered their 10th overtime loss of the season on Monday against Vancouver. Dallas allowed three goals in the first period before tying the game with 3:25 left. Andrei Kuzmenko won the game for the Canucks 48 seconds into overtime.

Noteworthy: Recently acquired forward Evgenii Dadonov made his Stars debut, scoring one goal in five shot attempts. The Stars also recalled forwards Fredrik Olofsson and Fredrik Karlstrom from their AHL affiliate, the Texas Stars. Both played for around seven and a half minutes on Monday.

Next Up: Arizona Coyotes at Stars, 7:30 p.m. CT Wednesday.


Texas Rangers (2-2 in Cactus League)
Last game: Rangers 13, Cincinnati Reds 2

The Rangers got their second win of the spring, scoring a combined nine runs in the third and ninth innings. Martin Perez went three innings in his spring debut, while Mitch Garver and Sam Huff homered in an offensive onslaught.

Noteworthy: The Rangers allowed only two runs despite committing four errors in the field. The team also had 17 hits and saw 10 batters record RBIs.

No.7 Baylor Bears (22-8, 11-6, third in Big 12 Conference)
Last Game: No.7 Baylor 74, Oklahoma State 68

Baylor led the entire game, while Oklahoma State made the final score look closer than the game actually was. The Bears had four players score double figures, even while playing without star guard Keyonte George.

Noteworthy: George missed Monday’s game with a sprained ankle he suffered in Saturday’s win against then-No.8 Texas.

Next Up: Iowa State (17-12) at Baylor, 11 a.m. Saturday.



No.12 Texas Longhorns (22-8, 13-4, first in Big 12 Conference)
Last Game: Baylor 63, No.12 Texas 54

Texas never led in this game as Baylor quickly stretched a five-point lead to double digits in the fourth quarter. Forward Taylor Jones led the Longhorns with 15 points and 13 rebounds.

Noteworthy: Texas leads No.16 Oklahoma by half a game in the Big 12 race with just one game left. The Sooners (22-5) play Kansas State on Wednesday and Oklahoma State on Saturday with a chance to steal the conference crown from the Longhorns.

Next Up: No.12 Texas at Kansas State (16-13), 4 p.m. CT Saturday.


Baylor Lady Bears (19-10, 10-7, fifth in Big 12 Conference)
