jones has triple-double, no. 2 baylor thumps no. 20 oklahoma

waco, texas — alexis jones had 24 points, 12 rebounds and 10 ists and no. 2 baylor beat no. 20 oklahoma 92-58 on sunday.

jones joined former center brittney griner as the only lady bears to record a triple-double. griner had five in her career, the last on march 3, 2013 against west virginia.

baylor (21-1, 10-0 big 12) s 57 percent over the final three quarters after struggling to 6 of 20 in the opening 10 minutes. reserve khadijiah cave had 16 points on 8-of-9 shooting, nina davis added 13 points and alexis prince finished with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

oklahoma (16-6, 7-3) got 15 points from peyton little and led by eight during the first quarter, but baylor scored the first 13 points of the second quarter to cap an 18-2 run and take control. maddie manning had 11 points, and vionise pierre-louis and gabbi ortiz added 10 points apiece. ortiz also pulled down 10 rebounds.

big picture

oklahoma: the sooners' offense was too stagnant to break down a stingy baylor defense. oklahoma had only nine ists to go with 17 turnovers. when the sooners' turnovers didn't trigger a quick score on the other end, a 6-for-26 performance from 3-point range often led to long rebounds that did.

baylor: the lady bears' size and depth make a tough matchup for anyone in the country and it showed again sunday. baylor outrebounded oklahoma 55-44, blocked eight s s and held a 60-26 edge in the paint.
