WACO, Texas (AP) - Brittney Griner set the NCAA career record for blocked shots while also scoring 15 points, and top-ranked Baylor extended its home-court winning streak to 50 with an 82-65 victory over No. 20 Oklahoma on Saturday.

With eight blocks in the game before fouling out with just over 5 minutes left, the 6-foot-8 Griner has 665 career blocks, two more than Louella Tomlinson had for St. Mary's in California from 2007-11.

Odyssey Sims had 12 points and 10 assists for Baylor (18-1, 8-0 Big 12), which has won 36 consecutive Big 12 games since a loss to Oklahoma in the conference tournament three years ago.

Aaryn Ellenberg scored 33 points for the Sooners (15-4, 5-2). Joanna McFarland had 12 points and 16 rebounds.
