WACO, Texas (AP) Odyssey Sims had 25 points and seven assists, Nina Davis added 16 points and No. 9 Baylor beat Houston Baptist 100-57 on Sunday.

The Lady Bears (8-1) extended their home-court winning streak to a national-best 65 games. They were playing for the first time in nine days, since a 133-130, four-overtime loss to No. 5 Kentucky at the Dallas Cowboys' stadium on Dec. 6.

Baylor put the game out of reach with a 22-4 run capped by consecutive layups by Sune Agbuke that made it 28-9.

It was the third game in a row that Baylor scored at least 100 points, and the fifth time this season setting a school record already for the most 100-point games in NCAA competition. The Lady Bears had four 100-point games in 2009-10, the freshman season for Brittney Griner. They had 11 such games in AIWA competition in 1977-78.

Agbuke finished with 12 points and 14 rebounds. Davis shot 7 for 7, Khadijiah Cave had 12 points.

Houston Baptist (3-5) had turnovers on six of its first 10 possessions, and finished with 20.

Tayler Jefferson had 13 points for the Huskies, who played for the first time in 12 days. Shanice Steenholdt had 12 points and 11 rebounds.

Baylor led 51-25 at halftime after a half-ending 14-4 run and two scores in the final 11 seconds. Davis had a layup with 11 seconds left, then Sims had a steal and drove for a layup with 1.7 seconds left.

Jefferson hit a 3-pointer to start the second half for Houston, but Baylor then scored 10 straight points.
