THE RUNDOWN
LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) - Gary Franklin scored 22 points and No. 18 Baylor easily beat Division II Chaminade 93-77 on Monday night at the Maui Invitational.

The Bears overcame a 42-point effort from Chaminade's Christophe Varidel, who fell one point shy of the tournament record of 43 points, scored by Gonzaga's Adam Morrison in a triple-overtime game in 2005. His 10 3-pointers set their own record.

Four players besides Franklin scored in double-figures for the Bears (5-0), who put the game away decisively in the second half after going into halftime with a 3-point lead.

Cory Jefferson had 15 points and nine rebounds, including an alley-oop and layup early in the second half that game Baylor its first double-digit lead over Chaminade (2-1).

Baylor shot 50 percent for the game, including just under 61 percent in the first half.
