Odyssey Sims scored 18 points and Brittney Griner sparked No. 1 Baylor's game-clinching second-half run with her 13th career dunk, leading the Lady Bears to an easy 75-48 win over Texas on Saturday night.
Griner's dunk was the lone highlight for the 6-foot-8 All-American forward, who otherwise 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. Jordan Madden scored 11 points for Baylor (22-1, 12-0 Big 12).
