LINCOLN, Neb. – Brittney Griner scored 23 points to lead three Baylor players in double figures and the top-ranked Lady Bears won their 19th straight game with a 69-45 victory over Nebraska on Wednesday night.
Odyssey Sims had 14 points and Brooklyn Pope added 12 while Destiny Williams had nine rebounds.
Lindsey Moore scored 18 points and Jordan Hooper 14 for the Cornhuskers.
Baylor (22-1, 9-0 Big 12) came in outscoring opponents by an average of 30 points a game, and only one team has played the Lady Bears closer than 10 points during their win streak. They had a double-digit lead in just over 4 minutes against the Huskers and led by as many as 25 points.
Nebraska (12-7, 2-7), which has lost five of six games, had only nine players in uniform because of injuries. It didn't help that they all looked nervous at the start against the first No. 1 team to visit the Devaney Sports Center.
The Huskers missed their first nine shots, including a couple of air balls and three other bad misses, before Lindsey Moore made the first of her four 3-pointers 6:08 into the game.
Sims made two 3-pointers and Terran Condrey one during a 13-2 run that stretched the lead to 28-9. Baylor was up 40-21 at the half.
Griner had 15 points in the first half but didn't show the dominant form fans have come to expect from her. The Huskers had a couple 6-foot-3 centers, senior Catheryn Redmon and freshman Adrianna Maurer, to guard the 6-8 Griner.
The preseason All-American, shooting 55 percent for the season, missed six of her first nine shots and finished 6 of 14. She made all 11 of her free throws, but grabbed just four rebounds, half her average.
The Lady Bears still dominated the boards, outrebounding Nebraska 44-34.
Baylor has outscored its nine Big 12 opponents by an average of 22 points and has won eight of nine conference games by 12 or more points.
