WACO, Texas (AP) - Odyssey Sims scored 18 of her 24 points in the first half and No. 6 Baylor coasted to its ninth straight win, beating Iowa State 89-51 Wednesday night.

Sims, the nation's leading scorer, made nine of 13 from the field and pushed her season total on 3-pointers to 80 by going 6 of 8 from long range.

The Lady Bears (23-3, 13-1 Big 12), who have their highest ranking of the season, took control with a 10-1 run midway through the first half on the way to their 34th straight conference home win.

Freshman Seanna Johnson scored 12 points to lead the Cyclones (17-8, 6-8), who haven't won two straight games since a 14-0 start capped by a 92-43 win over Texas Tech that put them at 3-0 in the Big 12.
