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.
