Wednesday's Top 25 Women's College Basketball Capsules

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Brittney Griner scored 23 points to lead three Baylor players in double figures and the top-ranked Lady Bears won their 19th straight game with a 69-45 victory over Nebraska on Wednesday night.

Odyssey Sims had 14 points and Brooklyn Pope added 12 while Destiny Williams had nine rebounds.

Lindsey Moore scored 18 points and Jordan Hooper 14 for the Cornhuskers.

Baylor (22-1, 9-0 Big 12) came in outscoring opponents by an average of 30 points a game, and only one team has played the Lady Bears closer than 10 points during their win streak. They had a double-digit lead in just over 4 minutes against the Huskers and led by as many as 25 points.

Nebraska (12-7, 2-7), which has lost five of six games, had only nine players in uniform because of injuries.

No. 6 Texas A&M 92, No. 14 Oklahoma 71

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Danielle Adams shook off early foul trouble to finish with 30 points and 13 rebounds as Texas A&M rolled to an easy win over Oklahoma.

The Aggies (20-2, 8-1 Big 12) never trailed and had built a 19-point lead with nine minutes left in the first half.

Texas A&M led by 22 points with about four minutes remaining before Oklahoma scored eight straight points to cut the lead to 84-70 with about 2 1/2 minutes left. The Aggies ended the run by scoring four quick points and coach Gary Blair took out his starters soon after that.

Danielle Robinson scored 24 points to lead Oklahoma (17-6, 7-3), which couldn’t overcome poor shooting by the rest of the team.

No. 7 Xavier 79, Richmond 57

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Ta’Shia Phillips had 21 points and 15 rebounds and Xavier opened the second half with a 20-2 run and ran away from Richmond.

Tyeashe Moss added 21 points for the Musketeers (20-2, 9-0 Atlantic 10), who won their 10th in a row since suffering consecutive late-December losses against No. 5 Duke and No. 3 Stanford. Xavier also has won seven in a row against the Spiders.

Richmond (15-9, 6-4), which scored the last five points of the first half to get within 36-27, missed its first 16 shots of the second half. Conference scoring leader Brittani Shells led Richmond with 24 points on 10 for 16 shooting; the rest of the team was 12 for 48.

Davis had 20 points in the second half and led the Jayhawks (16-8 overall, 3-7 Big 12) with eight rebounds, helping Kansas salvage a victory after blowing a 15-point second-half lead.

Iowa State (16-7, 4-5) led by three with 42 seconds left in overtime, but Davis had two free throws and the winner.

Kansas led 70-59 with 6:50 left in the game, but Kelsey Bolte capped a Iowa State comeback, hitting a 3-pointer with 29 seconds left to make it 78-78. The game went into overtime after Kansas’ Monica Engelman missed a jumper with six seconds left.
