Off game by Griner doesn't slow Bears

AUSTIN, Texas — Odyssey Sims had 18 points and Brittney Griner sparked No. 1 Baylor's clinching second-half run with her 13th career dunk, leading the Bears to an easy 75-48 win over Texas on Saturday night.

Griner's dunk was the highlight for the 6-foot-8 All-American forward, who had a mostly forgettable game. Griner had just two points in the first half and didn't have a rebound until midway through the second half.

Griner finished with 14 points and three rebounds for Baylor (22-1, 12-0 Big 12).

NO. 2 NOTRE DAME 69, SETON HALL 49: Ariel Braker matched a career high with 15 points as the visiting Irish (22-1, 10-0 Big East) won their 17th straight game.

NO. 11 LOUISVILLE 78, PITT 45: Shoni Schimmel led five players in double figures with 22 points for the host Cardinals (20-4, 8-2 Big East), who won their sixth straight game.

NO. 25 IOWA ST. 87, KANSAS ST. 71: Chelsea Poppens had 22 points and 18 rebounds as the host Cyclones (17-5, 8-4 Big 12) won their third game in a row.

Bulls postponed

USF's game at Providence, scheduled for Saturday night, was postponed to 1 p.m. today to allow for safer travel after heavy snow blanketed the area. USF's scheduled Tuesday night home game against St. John's was moved to 4 p.m. Wednesday.

FLA. TECH 63, ECKERD 52: The visiting Panthers erased a seven-point first-half deficit and rallied past the Tritons (9-10, 5-6 Sunshine State).

TAMPA 64, LYNN 43: Greta Bartkute had 14 points in her first start this season for the host Spartans (14-6, 4-6 SSC), who opened with a 10-0 run.

BARRY 66, SAINT LEO 58: The Bucs held the host Lions (10-11, 5-6 SSC) to 29 percent shooting in the second half and rallied.
