Griner keeps Baylor rolling

STILLWATER, Okla. — Brittney Griner had 30 points, 10 rebounds and a career-high seven assists to lead top-ranked Baylor to its 19th straight win Saturday night, 81-62 over No. 19 Oklahoma State.

The Bears (20-1, 10-0 Big 12) took control with an 18-2 run immediately after coach Kim Mulkey called timeout and put her five starters back on the floor with 10:03 left and just after Liz Donohoe's scoop shot put Oklahoma State (15-5, 4-5) up 21-16.

Griner had three baskets and also assisted on Jordan Madden's 3-pointer and Kimetria Hayden's layup during the stretch, which featured two shot-clock violations by Oklahoma State.

Odyssey Sims stretched the lead to 34-23 with a steal that led to a three-point play, and Baylor went up by 18 by scoring the first seven after halftime.

Donohoe led Oklahoma State with 24 points, one off her season best.

NO. 2 NOTRE DAME 64, CINCINNATI 42: Kayla McBride scored 17 of her 19 in the first half as the host Irish (20-1, 8-0 Big East) won their 15th straight game, matching the fourth-longest winning streak in school history.

NO. 3 UCONN 71, ST. JOHN'S 65: Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis scored 19 for the visiting Huskies (20-1, 7-1 Big East) in the teams' first regular-season meeting since the Red Storm ended Connecticut's 99-game home winning streak last February.

NO. 12 LOUISVILLE 74, G'TOWN 60: Antonita Slaughter had 22 points and the host Cardinals (19-4, 7-2 Big East) held Hoyas star Sugar Rodgers, who averages 23.7, to six.

NO. 23 IOWA ST. 67, TEXAS TECH 52: Chelsea Poppens had 18 points and nine rebounds as the host Cyclones (15-5, 6-4 Big 12) rallied after trailing most of the first half.


ROLLINS 52, ECKERD 50: Sarah Taylor, the sister of Eckerd men's point guard Woody Taylor, had 12 points for the visiting Tars, who avoided being swept in the regular season by the Tritons (8-9, 4-5 Sunshine State).

TAMPA 80, PB ATLANTIC 42: Greta Bartkute came off the bench to score a career-high 17 for the host Spartans (13-5), who never trailed.

NOVA SE 78, SAINT LEO 63: The host Sharks overcame a career-high 31 points by Teresa Manigrasso and cruised past the Lions (10-9, 5-4 SSC).
