STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Imani Wright scored 16 points, Nina Davis had 14 points and 12 rebounds and No. 3 Baylor beat Oklahoma State 69-52 on Wednesday night for its 20th straight victory.

Oklahoma State responded with a 7-0 run, with Roshunda Johnson scoring all seven points, to make it 49-30 with 13:53 left.

Later in the half, the Cowgirls reeled off a 13-4 run, but that just pulled them to 67-50 when Johnson sank two free throws with 3:44 to go.

The Lady Bears used a 12-3 run to push their early lead to 26-11 when Niya Johnson drove the lane for an easy layup with 10:05 left. The Cowgirls answered that with six straight points over the next four minutes, making it 26-17 on Jensen’s free throw with 6:03 to go.
