Odyssey Sims matched her season low with 17 points, and No. 6 Baylor overcame a sluggish showing in a rare morning start for its 10th straight win, beating TCU 69-46 Saturday.

The Lady Bears (24-3, 14-1 Big 12) stayed in sole possession of first place with three games left as they pursue a fourth straight conference regular-season title.

Sims awoke from a stretch that included two of her shots getting blocked early in the second half by grabbing a loose ball after one of her misses and circling under the basket for a bucket.

The nation's leading scorer, who was 7 of 22 from the field, then hit a 3-pointer to restore a 15-point lead.

The Horned Frogs (15-12, 6-9) went scoreless for nearly 9 minutes in the first half and shot 25 percent for the game.
