WACO, Texas - The No. 9 nationally ranked Baylor Lady Bears proved to be too much for the Rice Owls women's basketball team Monday evening, running their nation-leading home court win streak to 60 consecutive victories with a 79-46 triumph at the Ferrell Center.
Rice (2-2) was led in scoring by senior forward Jessica Kuster, who recorded her fourth straight double-double to begin the season and the 44th of her career with 15 points and 11 rebounds. Freshman forward Jasmine Goodwine also had a solid game with a career-high 10 points on 5-of-9 shooting from the floor.
Baylor senior guard Odyssey Sims led all players with 33 points, the second 30-point game of her career, to help the Lady Bears improve to 3-0. The Lady Bears shot 45 percent from the field for the game and had a 38-20 edge in points in the paint.
The Owls fell to 17-20 all-time against the Lady Bears and lost their seventh straight overall to Baylor. The Lady Bears
The Owls managed to keep the game close for the first eight minutes and trailed just 11-9 at the 12:38 mark following a Kuster put-back. However, from that point on the Lady Bears closed on a 34-9 run and held Rice without a made field goal over the final 10 minutes of the half to take a 45-18 halftime advantage.
The 18 first half points were a season-low as was the Owls 21 percent shooting in the first 20 minutes. Rice turned the ball over 12 times that resulted in 19 points for the Lady Bears. Baylor's bench also scoured Rice 19-9 in the first half.
Sims led all scorers with 24 points on 8-of-15 shooting from the field (3-of-6 from three-point territory) and 5-of-6 at the free throw line.
In the second half the Owls never got closer than 28 points, 66-38.
Rice will look to get back in the win column this Thursday when they return to Houston and Tudor Fieldhouse to host Southern at 7 p.m.
