AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Odyssey Sims scored 34 points, pushing No. 7 Baylor to a 72-56 win over Texas on Sunday, the Lady Bears' eighth consecutive victory that keeps them firmly in first place in the Big 12.
Sims, the national scoring leader, shook off a poor shooting start, and Baylor (22-3, 12-1) held Texas to just one field goal over the first 11 minutes of the second half as the Lady Bears pulled away.
Baylor, which is chasing its fourth consecutive Big 12 title, forced 26 Texas turnovers, turning them into 33 points.
Nneka Enemkpali scored 10 for Texas (17-8, 8-5).
Sims scored 44 when the teams first played two weeks earlier. She was 3-of 15 shooting in the first half of the rematch, but scored 22 points in the second half.
