FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Odyssey Sims matched her season low with 17 points, and No. 6 Baylor overcame a sluggish showing in a rare morning start for its 10th straight win, beating TCU 69-46 Saturday.

The Lady Bears (24-3, 14-1 Big 12) stayed in sole possession of first place with three games left as they pursue a fourth straight conference regular-season title.

Sims awoke from a stretch that included two of her shots getting blocked early in the second half by grabbing a loose ball after one of her misses and circling under the basket for a bucket.

The nation's leading scorer, who was 7 of 22 from the field, then hit a 3-pointer to restore a 15-point lead.

The Horned Frogs (15-12, 6-9) went scoreless for nearly 9 minutes in the first half and shot 25 percent for the game.

Zahna Medley led TCU with 13 points, but was 3 of 14 from the field and had six turnovers.

Baylor equaled its low for points in a victory, which came in the only game during the streak that the Lady Bears didn't win by double digits, 69-66 in overtime at Oklahoma State. That was Sims' other 17-point game.

Freshman Nina Davis had 17 for Baylor, while freshman Khadijiah Cave and sophomore Kristina Higgins scored 10 apiece.

Odyssey Sims' 17 points extended her streak of double-digit scoring to 38 games. Sims was last held to single-digits vs. UCONN, Feb. 18, 2013, when she had 9.
• Sims now has 100 career games in double figures and has led the team in points 38 times in her career.
Niya Johnson had eight rebounds tying a career high in rebounds in the game.
Nina Davis (14 points) scored in double-figures for the 22nd time this year.
Khadijiah Cave had 10 points in the game to be in double-figures for the seventh time this season.
Kristina Higgins (10 points) recorded her first Big 12 double figure scoring game and third double-digit outing of her career.
• Sims (7r/7a) and Johnson (8r/7a) combined for 15 rebounds and 14 assists.

Baylor had 20 assists to TCU's three.


Baylor returns home to host Oklahoma Monday at 6 p.m. CT on FS1.
