WACO, Texas (AP)- Odyssey Sims scored 28 points and No. 7 Baylor led throughout its 80-46 victory over TCU on Saturday night that extended the Lady Bears' national-best home-court winning streak to 69 games.
After being recognized during pregame for breaking the school's career record for 3-pointers in the previous game, national scoring leader Sims made six more shots from long-range.
