No. 1 Baylor defeats Cowgirls

STILLWATER  — Brittney Griner had 30 points, 10 rebounds and a career-high seven assists to lead top-ranked Baylor to its 19th straight win Saturday night, 81-62 over No. 19 Oklahoma State.

The Lady Bears (20-1, 10-0 Big 12) took control with an 18-2 run immediately after coach Kim Mulkey called timeout and put her five starters back on the floor with 10:03 remaining, just after Liz Donohoe's scoop shot put Oklahoma State (15-5, 4-5) up 21-16.

Griner had three baskets and also assisted on a 3-pointer by Jordan Madden and a Kimetria Hayden's layup during the stretch, which featured two shot-clock violations by the Cowgirls.

Odyssey Sims stretched the lead to 34-23 with a steal that led to a three-point play, and Baylor stretched its lead to 18 by scoring the first seven points after halftime.

Donohoe led the Cowgirls with 24 points, one off her season best.

“I thought we competed,” Oklahoma State coach Jim Littell said. “That was one thing that I really wanted when we went into this game — that we would line up, compete, really fight and I thought we did that a lot.”

Sims finished with 15 points and nine assists, and Madden scored 11.

Tiffany Bias chipped in 13 points and Brittney Martin had 12 rebounds for Oklahoma State.
