WACO, Texas (AP) — There was no comeback bid by No. 12 Oklahoma State against No. 7 Baylor this time.

And the Cowgirls couldn't again hold down guard Odyssey Sims, the nation's leading scorer.

Sims scored 33 points while making 14 of 19 shots and Baylor clinched its 14th consecutive 20-win season with an 81-64 victory Sunday.

Sims was held to a season-low 17 points against the Cowgirls just two weeks ago. She was 7-of-27 shooting without making a 3-pointer on eight chances from beyond the arc in 42 minutes in that game, but converted a three-point play with 3.8 seconds left in overtime for a 69-66 win.

"She missed some shots at our place. We feel like we did a good job on her. We packed it a little bit more," Oklahoma State coach Jim Littell said. " Then (Makenzie) Robertson killed us up there. We decided we weren't going to let somebody else kill us. Then you don't help as much. And she's too difficult to guard. It's kind of pick your poison at times. "

Freshman Nina Davis both finished with 15 points and Robertson, Baylor's other senior starter, had 11. Niya Johnson had 12 assists and Davis nine rebounds.

Robertson, who had six 3-pointers including the overtime-forcing shot two weeks ago at Stillwater, Okla., had eight points and Sims seven in a 17-4 run over a 5-minute spurt in the first half that put the Lady Bears (20-3, 10-1 Big 12) ahead to stay Sunday.

Liz Donohoe had 22 points for Oklahoma State (19-4, 8-4). Tiffany Bias and Kendra Suttles each had 11 points while Brittney Martin had 14 rebounds.

Baylor has won 33 consecutive conference home games. They have won six in a row overall since their first consecutive losses in four years.
