Lady Bears beat up on Houston Baptist

(Continued)

WACO, Texas —

Baylor put the game out of reach with a 22-4 run — capped by consecutive layups by Agbuke — that made it 28-9.

Houston Baptist (3-5) had turnovers on six of its first 10 possessions, and finished with 20.

Tayler Jefferson had 13 points for the Huskies, who played for the first time in 12 days. Shanice Steenholdt had 12 points and 11 rebounds.

Baylor led 51-25 at halftime after a half-ending 14-4 run and two scores in the final 11 seconds. Davis had a layup with 11 seconds left, then Sims had a steal and drove for a layup with 1.7 seconds left.

Jefferson hit a 3-pointer to start the second half for Houston, but Baylor then scored 10 straight points.

Steenholdt, who leads Houston Baptist in in scoring, rebounds, blocks and steals, had one steal and no blocks.

“I thought she came back in the second half and battled a little bit harder,” Houston Baptist coach Donna Finnie said. “A couple of times in the first half, I think she felt she should have had the call that wasn’t called. She let that get to her. In the second half, she crashed harder and took more responsibility on the offensive end. She definitely picked it up.”
