TWEET OF THE GAME
WACO, Texas (AP) -- Brittney Griner set the NCAA career record for blocked shots while also scoring 15 points to lead six Baylor players in double figures, and the top-ranked Lady Bears extended their home-court winning streak to 50 with an 82-65 victory over No. 20 Oklahoma on Saturday.

Griner got her record-tying and record-breaking blocks by swatting away shots by Aaryn Ellenberg in a span of 2 1/2 minutes in the second half. With eight in the game before fouling out, the 6-foot-8 Griner has 665 career blocks, two more than Louella Tomlinson of St. Mary's in California from 2007-11.

Griner, who fouled out for only the second time in her 131-game career, finished two points shy of matching the Big 12 career scoring record held by Oklahoma State's Andrea Riley (2,835 points from 2007-10).

Odyssey Sims had 12 points and 10 assists for Baylor (18-1, 8-0 Big 12), which has won 36 consecutive Big 12 regular-season and tournament games since a loss to Oklahoma in the conference tournament three years ago. Destiny Williams had 11 points and 10 rebounds.

Ellenberg had 33 points for the Sooners (15-4, 5-2). Joanna McFarland had 12 points and 16 rebounds.

Griner got her 663rd career block with just under 13 minutes left. A similar play with 10:25 remaining was Griner's seventh of the game and broke Tomlinson's record.

With 5:14 to go, Griner was called for a foul on another shot by Ellenberg. It was the first time she fouled out since the second game of her freshman season.

That came less than a minute after Griner was called for a charge against McFarland for the second time in the game.

In a 30-second span of the first half, McFarland drew charges against Griner and Jordan Madden and hit a 3-pointer in between. That long-range shot pulled the Sooners within 26-21, but they never got closer.

The Sooners made 11 of 26 3-pointers, but were just 9 of 46 inside the arc.
