Top ranked Baylor dominates K-State 71-48
By AVERY OSEN
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Chloe Jackson scored 16 points and No. 1 Baylor used a good shooting night and solid defense to rout Kansas State 71-48 on Wednesday night.
Juicy Landrum added 15 points, Lauren Cox 14 and Kalani Brown had 10 and 12 rebounds for the Lady Bears (22-1, 12-0 Big 12 Conference), who beat Kansas State for the 31st straight time. Baylor has also won 35 in a row in the regular season against Big 12 foes and 33 consecutive conference games on the road.
Baylor dominated in almost all facets of the contest outrebounding the Wildcats 40-29, outscoring them 28-22 in the paint and had 15 more assists than K-State.
The Lady Bears jumped all over the Wildcats in the first quarter, outscoring them 21-9. They led 40-22 at the half as Baylor shot 17-for-28 from the field in the opening 20 minutes. Landrum had 12 of her points in the first half, making all five of her shots.
Peyton Williams scored 11 points and Kayla Goth had 10 for Kansas State (15-10, 6-7).
It will be nearly impossible for any Big 12 team to beat Baylor if they shoot as well as they did Wednesday night. If the Bears are hitting shots, there might not even be a team in the country that can.
K-State will need to leave this one behind them as they take on a ranked Texas team next, a team they beat earlier this season already.
Baylor will return home to host Oklahoma on Saturday.
K-State goes to Texas to face off against the Longhorns on Sunday.
