WACO, Texas (AP) Odyssey Sims scored 28 points and No. 7 Baylor led throughout its 80-46 victory over TCU on Saturday night that extended the Lady Bears' national-best home-court winning streak to 69 games.
After being recognized during pregame for breaking the school's career record for 3-pointers in the previous game, national scoring leader Sims made six more shots from long-range. She had two from beyond the arc when the Lady Bears (14-1, 4-0 Big 12) scored the game's first 14 points in just over 3 minutes.
Sims has never lost at home, but a big test comes Monday night when Baylor hosts top-ranked Connecticut (17-0).
TCU coach Jeff Mittie called his second timeout already after Sims' second 3-pointer, when the Horned Frogs (11-5, 2-2) had taken only two shots. They finally scored when Natalie Ventress made a short jumper 3 minutes into the game.
