WACO, Texas -- Reggie Hearn had 17 points with 10 rebounds and Northwestern snapped a two-game losing streak with a 74-70 win Tuesday night at Baylor, which was coming off a win at Kentucky.

Baylor (5-3) was within 70-67 when Pierre Jackson made two free throws with 23 seconds left after a midcourt turnover by Northwestern on an inbound pass. Dave Sobolewski made a free throw with 17 seconds left after Northwestern had missed six free throws in a row.
