Brooklyn Pope scored 18 points and Brittney Griner added 14 points and 10 rebounds to help second-ranked Baylor beat No.13 Oklahoma State, 83-49 on Sunday.

Odyssey Sims had 13 points and Destiny Williams 11 points for the Lady Bears (12-1, 2-0 Big 12), who extended the longest active home-winning streak in the country to 47 games.

Liz Donohoe scored 13 points and Toni Young had 12 points and 11 rebounds for Oklahoma State (11-2, 0-2), which has dropped two straight games after winning their first 11.

Baylor could move back into the No. 1 spot in the poll on Monday after No. 5 Notre Dame beat top-ranked UConn 73-72 on Saturday.

The Lady Bears opened the second half with a 20-3 run to take a 62-29 lead with just over 12 minutes left. Sims started the run with a steal and layup for the first basket of the half. She made another layup on an out-of-bounds play and Griner scored five during the stretch which saw Oklahoma go scoreless for five minutes until Donahoe hit a 3 with 11:55 to play.

Baylor took a 23-15 lead on a Pope layup with an assist from Sims. Oklahoma State answered with a 8-0 run that included three layups from Tiffany Bias and a pair of free throws by Donahoe that tied the game with 10:07 left in the first half.

From there, Baylor went on a 15-2 run that was sparked by a 3 from Sims and ended with a 3-point play by Sims that put Baylor up 38-25 with 3:47 remaining.

Prior to the game, the Washington Redskins playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks was broadcast on the video board above the court. While waiting for tipoff, fans were able to watch Baylor graduate Robert Griffin III.

Fortunately for Baylor fans, the Redskins’ game was turned off before Griffin got hurt in the fourth quarter and Washington’s 24-14 loss.
