THE RUNDOWN
WACO, Texas (AP) - Odyssey Sims scored 30 points while matching the Baylor record for career 3-pointers and the No. 9 Lady Bears stretched their home winning streak to 68 games with a 75-55 win over Kansas on Sunday.

All of those home wins span the career of Sims, the All-American senior point guard. The Lady Bears (12-1, 2-0 Big 12) have also won 42 consecutive conference games, and the conference streak is 51 in a row when including their three consecutive league tournament championships.

Freshman Nina Davis had 19 points and seven rebounds for Baylor.

CeCe Harper led Kansas (7-7, 0-2) with 15 points and seven assists, while Asia Boyd had 12 points.

HIGHLIGHTS
• Sims' 30 points gave her 14 straight games with at least 20 points dating back to last year's NCAA Tournament game with Louisville; it marks the 31st time in her career she's passed the 20-point mark in a game and the 7th time she's scored 30 or more points.
• Sims extended her streak of double-digit scoring to 23 games. Sims was last held to single-digits vs. UCONN, Feb. 18 when she had 9.
• Sims' 30 points gives her 401 on the season; she's scored at least 400 points in all four of her seasons with Baylor.
• Sims' one 3-point field goal ties the school record for career 3-pointers made with 195 (Jennifer King, 1989-93).
Nina Davis' 19 points gives the freshman double figures in 11 of 13 games this season.

STAT OF THE GAME
Baylor held a 23-6 advantage over Kansas in second-chance points.
