No. 1 Baylor downs Kansas to remain undefeated

Brittney Griner had 20 points, eight rebounds 45 win over Kansas.

Kimetria Hayden added 16 points and Odyssey Sims had 15 for the Lady Bears (29-0, 16-0 Big 12), who had already clinched an outright conference title with Tuesday's win over Texas.

Angel Goodrich scored a team-high 14 points for the Jayhawks (18-10, 7-9). They shot just 26.9 percent and have lost four of their last five.

The NCAA's lone undefeated Division I basketball team -- men's or women's -- opened the game with a 23-2 run. Griner scored eight points during the early surge, Brooklyn Pope had six and Sims capped it with a three-pointer.

Kansas outscored Baylor 14-10 over the remainder of the first half, but the deficit proved too large to completely overcome.

It was 33-16 at the break and the Bears opened the second half with eight straight points -- six from Griner -- to put the Jayhawks away.

The advantage reached 30, 58-28, near the midway point and Baylor was not threatened the rest of the way.
