THE RUNDOWN
WACO, Texas (AP)- Odyssey Sims scored 29 points and had 13 assists to become the Baylor career leader in that category as the Lady Bears beat San Jose State 113-73 on Tuesday night.

It was the first game in 10 days for the Lady Bears (7-0), who extended their nation's-best home winning streak to 64 games.

Nina Davis had 15 points in 17 minutes while Makenzie Robertson scored 13 points, Khadijiah Cave had 12 and Chardonae Fuqua 10 for Baylor. Niya Johnson had 14 assists. Sims had five steals and five rebounds with one turnover in her 27 minutes.

Short-handed San Jose State (4-4), with only eight players in uniform, ran out to a 23-18 lead on Rebecca Woodberry's third 3-pointer with 13:40 left in the first half.

The Lady Bears then scored 14 straight points in less than 3 minutes. They led 32-23 after consecutive 3-pointers by Makenzie Robertson, both on passes from Sims. The Spartans missed their only two shots and had three turnovers in that shorter span, which was part of a 31-7 run by Baylor.

Woodberry finished with 19 points, while Classye James had 17 and Ta'rea Cunnigan 16.

Needing only two assists to overtake Angela Tisdale's school record of 493, Sims had that in less than 3 minutes. She had 10 assists by halftime, and had 17 points as the Lady Bears led 63-38.

Robertson had 11 points with three 3s and Sune Agbuke already had 10 of her 12 rebounds by then.

Sims, who entered the game as the Big 12 scoring leader and No. 3 nationally with 27.3 points per game, has 492 career assists.

Johnson had 14 assists for Baylor.
