THE RUNDOWN
WACO, Texas (AP) - Odyssey Sims scored 33 points with three 3-pointers and No. 7 Baylor clinched its 14th consecutive 20-win season with an 81-64 victory over No. 12 Oklahoma State on Sunday.

The Lady Bears (20-3, 10-1 Big 12) have won 33 consecutive conference home games. They have won six in a row overall since their first consecutive losses in four years.

Sims, the nation's leading scorer at 30 points a game, was held to a season-low 17 points against the Cowgirls just two weeks ago.

She was 7-of-27 shooting without making a 3-pointer on eight chances from beyond the arc in 42 minutes in that game, but converted a three-point play with 3.8 seconds left in overtime for a 69-66 win.

In the rematch, Sims was 14-of-19 shooting. She had 19 points by halftime, matching her scoring total of the first game on a jumper with 1:23 left in the first half.

Freshman Nina Davis both finished with 15 points and Makenzie Robertson, Baylor's other senior starter, had 11. Niya Johnson had 12 assists and Davis nine rebounds.

Robertson had eight points and Sims seven in a 17-4 run over a 5-minute spurt in the first half that put the Lady Bears ahead to stay.

Liz Donohoe had 22 points for Oklahoma State (19-4, 8-4). Tiffany Bias and Kendra Suttles each had 11 points while Brittney Martin had 14 rebounds.

There were five lead changes in the first 8 1/2 minutes of the game. The sixth - and last - came when Robertson made the first of consecutive 3-pointers.

Robertson had six 3-pointers in the previous game against the Cowgirls.

Davis had a layup that got Baylor within 21-19, then Robertson hit 3s on the next two Baylor possessions. Sims then scored the next eight Baylor points, on a jumper, two free throws and a 3-pointer.

When Davis converted a three-point play soon after halftime, the Lady Bears had a 47-32 lead.

In the game at Stillwater, the Lady Bears had a 16-point lead early in the second half before Oklahoma State rallied to go ahead. Robertson's 3-pointer with 6 seconds left in the regulation forced overtime.

There was no comeback by the Cowgirls this time.

HIGHLIGHTS
• Baylor posted its 14th straight 20-win season, which is a school and Big 12 record.
