HOUSTON (AP) - Brittney Griner scored a season-high 35 points and third-ranked Baylor cruised to an 89-49 victory over Rice on Tuesday night.
Playing a college basketball game in her hometown of Houston for the first time, Griner received a standing ovation from the Tudor Fieldhouse record crowd of 2,318 when she was announced before the game.
The 6-foot-8 senior added nine rebounds and four blocks as Baylor (6-1) raced to a 46-17 halftime lead and never looked back.
Jessica Kuster scored 18 points and picked up 13 rebounds for Rice (2-4) in the loss. Kuster posted the 30th double-double of her career. Christal Porter scored 11 points and Zoe Rogers had her third career double-digit scoring game with 10 points.
Baylor All-American point guard Odyssey Sims missed her fourth straight game since sustaining a strained hamstring in the Lady Bears' loss to Stanford.
Rice continues its home stand on Saturday against McNeese State. Tip-off is set for 1 p.m. at Tudor Fieldhouse.
