MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Brittney Griner scored 29 points and top-ranked Baylor routed Kansas State 90-69 on Wednesday for its 27th straight regular-season Big 12 win.
Brooklyn Pope added 12 points and Kimetria Hayden had 11 for the Lady Bears (15-1, 5-0), who have won 13 straight overall since losing to then-No. 4 Stanford early in the year. With the Cardinal's loss to California last week, the Lady Bears now own the longest conference winning streak.
The Wildcats managed to stay close in the first half by making eight 3-pointers, but they went cold after the break and the Lady Bears answered with a 21-3 run to put the game away.
Kansas State wound up hitting 13 of a school-record 44 3-point attempts.
Brittany Chambers had four of them and finished with 23 points for the Wildcats.
