WACO, Texas (AP) -- Bernice Mosby and Latara Darrett helped No. 9 Baylor wrap up a nearly spotless preseason that surprised coach Kim Mulkey.
The Lady Bears (13-1) got ready for Big 12 play with a 94-50 win over Prairie View A&M on Saturday.
"With this much youth, I'm not sure what my expectations should have been," Mulkey said. "But I didn't think we'd be 13-1 and beat some of the people we've beaten."
Mosby had 21 points and nine rebounds, and Darrett added a career-high 18 points to lead Baylor to its 10th straight victory.
"It's been a great roll for us," Mosby said. "We're really blessed to be 13-1."
Angela Tisdale and Danielle Wilson scored 12 points each for the Lady Bears, and Jhasmin Player had 10.
Baylor outscored the Lady Panthers (2-9) 12-3 to open the second half, taking a 56-18 lead with just 14 minutes. The Lady Bears forced 28 Prairie View A&M turnovers, resulting in 50 Baylor points.
"My teammates got me the ball when I was open," Darrett said. "I was able to hit them down."
Candice Thomas and Angel Smith led Prairie View A&M (2-9) with 11 points each.
