No. 2 Baylor routs No. 13 Cowgirls

WACO, Texas —  Brooklyn Pope scored 18 points and Brittney Griner added 14 points and 10 rebounds to help second-ranked Baylor beat No.13 Oklahoma State, 83-49 on Sunday.

Odyssey Sims had 13 points and Destiny Williams 11 points for the Lady Bears (12-1, 2-0 Big 12), who extended the longest active home-winning streak in the country to 47 games. Liz Donohoe scored 13 points and Toni Young had 12 points and 11 rebounds for OSU (11-2, 0-2), which has dropped two straight games after winning their first 11.

Baylor could move back into the No. 1 spot in the poll today after No. 5 Notre Dame beat top-ranked UConn 73-72 on Saturday.

The Lady Bears opened the second half with a 20-3 run to take a 62-29 lead with just over 12 minutes left.  Sims started the run with a steal and layup for the first basket of the half. She made another layup on an out-of-bounds play and Griner scored five during the stretch which saw OSU go scoreless for five minutes until Donahoe hit a 3 with 11:55 to play.

Baylor took a 23-15 lead on a Pope layup with an assist from Sims. OSU answered with a 8-0 run that included three layups from Tiffany Bias and a pair of free throws by Donahoe that tied the game with 10:07 left in the first half.

From there, Baylor went on a 15-2 run that that put the Lady Bears up 38-25 with 3:47 remaining.
