Kelsi Baker scored 12 points to lead the Lady Raiders (16-5, 6-3), who had won four straight.

Griner's jumper just over seven minutes in provided Baylor with an 18-4 advantage and the Lady Bears cruised to a 41-27 edge at the break.

Baylor shot 56.8 percent (21-for-37) in the second half and led by double- digits throughout the frame en route to the victory.
