Regardless of the quality of the opponent, it always seems that one team has another's number throughout the year. For Baylor, it seems that we had Kansas State's number this year, beating Kansas State by 30 and 22 during the regular season, even when Kansas State was playing much closer in other contests.

Baylor started a little cold but behind a 12-0 run took the lead and never really looked back. Baylor continued solid play and went into half time with a 43-27 lead. Nina Davis dominated and was in double digits in less than 10 minutes.

Baylor started the second half with a 6-0 run to extend the lead to 49-29. After leading 55-34 with 14.17 left, Kansas State started to put together a run that extended over 10 minutes and drew within 7 of Baylor. However, Kansas State would not score for the remaining 1:28, letting Baylor push the lead back to 12.

Nina Davis had another monster game, scoring 30 points, getting 6 rebounds and 6 steals. Imani Wright had 14 points and 7 rebounds and Kristy Wallace had 13 points. Niya Johnson had 6 points, 6 steals, and 11 assists (with only 2 turnovers).

Baylor faces Oklahoma State tomorrow at 1:30 on Fox Sports 1.
