WACO, Texas (AP) — Nina Davis scored 17 points and Baylor won at home again in the NCAA Tournament, advancing with a 77-36 first-round victory over Northwestern State on Friday.
The Big 12 champion Lady Bears (31-3), the No. 2 seed in the Oklahoma City Regional, took control with an early 14-2 run in which Davis and Khadijah Cave each had six points to break a 7-7 tie and go ahead to stay.
Alexis Prince had 14 points for Baylor, including a 3-pointer to cap a 15-3 run after halftime with seven of eight shots made to go up 60-29.
The Lady Bears have won 20 home games in a row overall, including the first two rounds in last year’s NCAA Tournament. They opened at home for the fourth time in five years, and are now 7-0 in those NCAA games.
