NCAA Womens Basketball: Baylor at Tennessee Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

Baylor’s Lady Bears Basketball, cheered on by more than 3,000 local elementary school kids, scored a school record and NCAA season-high 140 points on their way to the biggest Division I women's basketball rout ever, as No. 3 Baylor overwhelmed Winthrop 140-32 Thursday. From USNews dot com.

The 108-point margin of victory surpassed the 102 set by Grambling when it beat Jarvis Christian College 139-37 in 1986.

Baylor (11-1) led 77-18 at halftime and outscored the Eagles 29-0 in the fourth quarter.

The Lady Bears scheduled the Noon time game specifically to allow the attendance of the elementary school students taking official field trips for the day. No need to call the truant officers.

Baylor’s 72 first half points set a school record for points in a half breaking the previous record of 64 points.

Leading scorer Alexis Jones, who's had knee trouble, sat out for the second straight game to rest.

Khadijiah Cave had a career-high 25 points to lead five double-figure scorers. Baylor set school single-game records for points, rebounds (75) assists (42) and blocked shots (17).

The Lady Bears will take another fortnight off, opening Big XII play at home on December 29 against Kansas State. Bring the kids.
