THE RUNDOWN
WACO, Texas -Odyssey Sims scored 22 points and No. 9 Baylor extended the nation's-best home winning streak to 61 games with a 99-31 victory over Savannah State on Thursday night.

Sims, the preseason AP All-American point guard, has scored at least 22 points in every game this season for the Lady Bears (4-0).

Baylor had a 6-minute span without a field goal in the first half, but still led by 14 when freshman Nina Davis had a putback basket of her own miss with 6 minutes left in the first half. That ended the Lady Bears' streak of eight consecutive missed shots.

Davis had 17 points while two Lady Bears had double-doubles: Kristina Higgins (14 points, 11 rebounds) and Sune Agbuke (10 points, 10 rebounds).

HIGHLIGHTS
• The Lady Bears extended their program-record home win streak to 61 games; the streak is the longest active streak in the nation after UCONN snapped Stanford's string of 82-straight wins on Dec. 29, 2012. Baylor's last loss in Waco came against Texas, March 7, 2010 by a score of 70-54.
• Baylor has won 31 straight regular season games since a 71-69 loss to No. 4 Stanford on Nov. 16, 2012, in Honolulu.
• With 22 points, senior Odyssey Sims extended her streak of double-digit scoring to 14 games. Sims was last held to single-digits against UCONN, Feb. 18 when she had nine.
• Sims has now scored double figures in the first half of all four games this season (13 vs. Grambling State; 14 vs. Nicholls State; 24 vs. Rice; 11 vs. Savannah State).
• Freshman Nina Davis' 17 points helped her reach double figures in each of her first four collegiate games.
• Davis' 12 points at halftime marked the first time she's had double figures in the first half of her young career.
• Sophomore Kristina Higgins notched her first career double-double with career highs of 14 points and 11 rebounds, along with career-tying bests of 2 blocks and 1 steal.
• Junior Sune Agbuke tallied her second career double-double with season highs of 10 points and 10 rebounds.
• Agbuke and Higgins' double-doubles mark the second time this season that Baylor has had two players total double-doubles (Davis and Khadijiah Cave vs. Nicholls State on Nov. 14).

STAT OF THE GAME
Baylor outrebounded Savannah State, 63-40.
