COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Brittney Griner scored 18 points and Kimetria Hayden added 15 points with four steals to help No. 1 Baylor roll past Missouri 71-41 on Wednesday night.
Destiny Williams scored 10 points with 11 rebounds and Odyssey Sims had 12 points for the unbeaten Lady Bears, whose season-opening winning streak reached 22 games. BreAnna Brock and Sydney Crafton led Missouri with eight points each. Missouri's leading scorer Christine Flores was held to seven points.
The Tigers (10-10, 0-9) remain winless in their final season in the Big 12 Conference before joining the SEC next year. They set season lows for points in both the first half and the entire game.
Missouri kept pace with Baylor early on, but trailed 28-18 at halftime after a seven-minute scoring drought. Baylor quickly took control in the second half, scoring the first 10 points to put the game away.
