WACO, Texas (AP) - Senior Tweety Carter scored 22 of his season-high 27 points in the first half, while Quincy Acy put on a dunking exhibition in Baylor's 90-60 win over Jackson State Tuesday in the Ferrell Center.
Acy had five dunks in a seven-minute stretch of the second half en route to a career-high 20 points. Anthony Jones added 12 for Baylor (8-1).
"Tweety (Carter) has really been shooting it well," Baylor head coach Scott Drew said. "I think the big thing is that he hasn't forced action and he has let things come to him. He has had good looks and is taking high-percentage shots."
De'Suan Dixon had 19 points for Jackson State (0-7), and Phillip Williams added a career-high 17 (surpassing his season total by three points).
Carter drained three straight 3-pointers as Baylor jumped to an 18-6 lead. He added 11 points in the final 3:30 of the half. Carter closed the half with five points in the final five-seconds, making a pair of free throws, stealing the inbound pass and nailing another 3-pointer at the buzzer as the Bears took a 49-31 lead into the break.
Baylor will face the UT Arlington Mavericks Sunday at 2 p.m. in the Ferrell Center. Sunday's game will be televised on FOX Sports Southwest.
