No. 6 Texas A&M 92, No. 14 Oklahoma 71 -- Box Score
COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Danielle Adams shook off early foul trouble to finish with 30 points and 13 rebounds as No. 6 Texas A&M rolled to an easy 92-71 win against No. 14 Oklahoma on Wednesday night.
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.
Adams sat out most of the first half after picking up two quick fouls, but played almost the entire second half, scoring 21 of her points.
Texas A&M led by 22 points with about four minutes remaining before Oklahoma scored eight consecutive 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.
The Aggies, who got a two-point win in Norman two weeks ago, retain sole possession of second place in the Big 12 with the victory.
No. 1 Baylor 69, Nebraska 45 -- Box Score
LINCOLN, Neb. -- Like most of its other opponents, top-ranked Baylor left Nebraska badly beaten yet mighty impressed.
Brittney Griner scored 23 points to lead three Baylor players in double figures and the Lady Bears won their 19th consecutive game with a 69-45 victory Wednesday night.
Odyssey Sims had 14 points and Brooklyn Pope added 12 while Destiny Williams had nine rebounds.
"They're as good as advertised,'' Nebraska's Lindsey Moore said. "They just have so many weapons that can hurt you. It's hard to pick something that's going to affect them, even the slightest.''
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 26 points.
No. 7 Xavier 79, Richmond 57 -- Box Score
RICHMOND, Va. -- Ta'Shia Phillips and No. 7 Xavier made short work of Richmond.
Phillips had 21 points and 15 rebounds and the Musketeers opened the second half with a 20-2 en route to a 79-57 win against the Spiders on Wednesday night.
"She's just absolutely relentless and she was terrific tonight,'' Xavier coach Kevin McGuff said of Phillips, who did all her scoring within a few feet of the basket. She was 10 for 14 from the field, and set the tone in the second half with two power moves on Xavier's first two possessions.
Tyeasha Moss hit four 3-pointers and added 21 points for the Musketeers (20-2, 9-0 Atlantic 10), who won their 10th in a row since consecutive late-December losses against No. 5 Duke and No. 3 Stanford. Xavier also has won seven in a row against the Spiders.
Kansas 86, No. 22 Iowa State 85 -- Box Score
LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Carolyn Davis scored 31 points, including the winning basket with 2.7 seconds left in overtime, to give Kansas an 86-85 upset against No. 22 Iowa State on Wednesday night.
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.
Bolte led the Cyclones with 26 points, including 20 in the second half, and Hallie Christofferson added 21 points and eight rebounds.
