BOX SCORE   RECAP

Baylor 83, Kansas State 58

WACO, Texas - Lauren Cox and NaLyssa Smith both had double-doubles as No. 2 Baylor beat Kansas State 83-58, then celebrated the 10th consecutive Big 12 title that the Lady Bears already had secured before tipoff.

Smith had 23 points and 13 rebounds, while Cox scored a season-high 22 points with 10 rebounds. Juicy Landrum had 14 points and six assists, while DiDi Richards had a career-high 10 assists for the Lady Bears (27-1, 16-0 Big 12).

Baylor led throughout after scoring the game's first 10 points. Smith scored six of those, and the sophomore forward went on to her 10th double-double this season.

The defending national champion Lady Bears clinched at least a share of the Big 12 championship with their 64-39 win at West Virginia on Monday night, and had the outright title when second-place TCU lost to Texas two days after that. Their 10 consecutive regular season titles is the nation's longest active streak.

Baylor has won 57 Big 12 regular-season games in a row, and also has a national-best home winning streak of 55 games. Both of those streaks began after a home loss to Texas on Feb. 6, 2017.

Angela Harris had 17 points for Kansas State (14-13, 8-8), and senior guard Peyton Williams had all 14 of her points after halftime.

Cox, a preseason AP All-America pick, had her seventh double-double this season and her 35th in 129 career games. The 6-foot-4 senior forward missed eight games in non-conference play with a right foot issue.

Baylor, which was held to a season-low 54 points in a 14-point win at Kansas State three weeks earlier, had a 44-18 point halftime lead. That was the largest lead in the first half, and the Lady Bears led by as many as 30 after halftime.
