Sims leads No. 9 Baylor women to 113-73 win

Associated Press  |  Last updated December 03, 2013
Odyssey Sims scored 29 points and had 13 assists to become the Baylor career leader in that category as the No. 9 Lady Bears beat San Jose State 113-73 on Tuesday night. It was the first game in 10 days for the Lady Bears (7-0), who extended their nation's-best home winning streak to 64 games. Nina Davis had 15 points in 17 minutes while Makenzie Robertson scored 13 points, Khadijiah Cave had 12 and Chardonae Fuqua 10 for Baylor. Niya Johnson had 14 assists. Sims had five steals and five rebounds with one turnover in her 27 minutes. Short-handed San Jose State (4-4), with only eight players in uniform, ran out to a 23-18 lead on Rebecca Woodberry's third 3-pointer with 13:40 left in the first half. The Lady Bears then scored 14 straight points in less than 3 minutes. They led 32-23 after consecutive 3-pointers by Makenzie Robertson, both on passes from Sims. The Spartans missed their only two shots and had three turnovers in that shorter span, which was part of a 31-7 run by Baylor. Woodberry finished with 19 points, while Classye James had 17 and Ta'rea Cunnigan 16. Needing only two assists to overtake Angela Tisdale's school record of 493, Sims had that in less than 3 minutes. She had 10 assists by halftime, and had 17 points as the Lady Bears led 63-38. Robertson had 11 points with three 3s and Sune Agbuke already had 10 of her 12 rebounds by then. Sims, who entered the game as the Big 12 scoring leader and No. 3 nationally with 27.3 points per game, has 505 career assists. Johnson had 14 assists for Baylor. The Lady Bears have rolled past their first seven opponents by an average margin of 44.7 points, the best in the country, and scored at least 110 points three times. The most points they ever scored the previous four seasons with 6-foot-8 Brittney Griner, the two-time AP player of the year, was 109 - and that was in their only 100-point game during their 40-0 national championship two seasons ago. Baylor has its biggest test next before getting into Big 12 play in January. The Lady Bears play No. 5 Kentucky (8-0) on Friday night at the Dallas Cowboys' stadium in quite a doubleheader. Right after the Baylor and Kentucky women finish their game at the site of the men's NCAA Final Four next April, the men's teams from those two schools play. Both the No. 3 Kentucky men and No. 20 Baylor are 7-1 this season. The Lady Bears played for the first time since Nov. 23, when they won their third game in three days to win the Athletes in Action Classic on campus. Their other remaining non-conference games before the Big 12 opener Jan. 2 at Kansas State are against Houston Baptist, Mississippi and McNeese State - all at home. Woodberry scored on a layup off the opening tip and then made three 3-pointers, the last from well beyond the line on the right wing not far from Baylor coach Kim Mulkey standing on the sideline. The Spartans shot 64 percent (7 of 11) on 3-pointers before halftime, but were only 25 percent inside the arc (5 of 20).
