LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Brittney Griner had 33 points and seven rebounds, and top-ranked Baylor had little trouble beating No. 17 Kansas 82-60 on Sunday for the Lady Bears' 12th consecutive win.
Griner had 22 points in the first half, when Baylor (14-1, 4-0 Big 12) seized control. Odyssey Sims added 14 points and Brooklyn Pope finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds as the Lady Bears won their 26th consecutive conference game.
Their only loss this season was against then-No. 4 Stanford.
CeCe Harper came off the bench to score a career-high 21 points for the Jayhawks (11-4, 2-2), who had been unbeaten in nine home games. Angel Goodrich added 16 points and seven assists, and Carolyn Davis finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds.
NO. 2 NOTRE DAME 71, RUTGERS 46
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Skylar Diggins scored 15 points to lead No. 2 Notre Dame to a rout of Rutgers.
The All-American point guard led the Irish in scoring despite playing limited minutes. Coach Muffet McGraw benched her with 8:55 left in the first half after Diggins was whistled with a technical foul for jumping up and down in protest of a foul called against her. Notre Dame took a 37-17 lead into the break.
Diggins had scored nine in the first half and started the second half. She added six more before McGraw pulled her and other starters because of the lopsided score.
Notre Dame freshman Jewell Loyd followed with 14 points, helping to give the Irish (14-1, 3-0 Big East) their sixth conference home-opening win in the past seven seasons.
Erica Wheeler led Rutgers (9-7, 0-3) with 17 points.

Richa Jackson added 10 points and Chloe Wells matched a season best with 10 points for the Blue Devils (15-0, 5-0 Atlantic Coast Conference).
They shot 48 percent, forced 23 turnovers, turned them into 26 points and outscored Wake Forest 40-22 in the second half to remain the only unbeaten team in Division I.
Lakevia Boykin scored 12 points and Dearica Hamby finished with 11 to lead the Demon Deacons (9-7, 2-2). They were denied their first victory over Duke since 1993.

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Gennifer Brandon had 14 points and 12 rebounds and No. 7 California snapped fifth-ranked Stanford's 81-game winning streak against conference opponents in the second meeting between the Bay Area rivals in six days.

Mikayla Lyles scored 11 of her career-best-matching 14 points over the final 6:04 of the first half as Cal (13-2, 3-1 Pac-12) took control on the way to snapping Stanford's 10-game winning streak in the series and three-year run of dominance against the conference.
The Bears earned just their fourth victory in the last 46 meetings with Stanford (14-2, 3-1) — even more special now that both are among the nation's top-10.
