WACO, Texas (AP) — Baylor guard Odyssey Sims is accustomed to opposing teams trying different things to stop her.

Kansas got a reminder Sunday of how difficult that really is.

Sims scored 30 points while matching the school record for career 3-pointers and the No. 9 Lady Bears stretched their home winning streak to 68 games with a 75-55 win.

"I've seen all of it just last year, so it wasn't anything new," said Sims, who has 70 points in the Lady Bears' two Big 12 games. "The biggest thing, whatever they threw at me I had to keep my composure, when they trap me, when they deny me the ball, and not turn it over.

All of those home wins span the career of Sims, the All-American senior point guard. The Lady Bears (12-1, 2-0 Big 12) have also won 42 consecutive conference games, and the conference streak is 51 in a row when including their three consecutive league tournament championships.

Freshman Nina Davis had 19 points and seven rebounds for Baylor.

CeCe Harper led Kansas (7-7, 0-2) with 15 points and seven assists, while Asia Boyd had 12 points.

The game was marred late when Kansas freshman guard Keyla Morgan had a seizure and was down face-first on the floor after colliding into the shoulder of a teammate after taking a shot with 1:18 left in the game. Morgan was tended to for several minutes, at one point wildly kicking both legs, before being put on a stretcher and taken off the court.

Morgan had multiple seizures while in high school in California, but Kansas coach Bonnie Henrickson said it is the first time Morgan has had any such issues with the Jayhawks.

"It's scary for all of us," Henrickson said. "At least I get to be out there and I can hear her talk, see that she's squeezing her hands and she can move her toes a little bit."

Kansas spokeswoman Theresa Kurtz said in a text to The Associated Press that Morgan was released from the hospital and traveled home with the team Sunday night.

While Morgan was being tended to, Baylor players went over to the Kansas bench and joined Jayhawks players for a prayer.
