WACO, Texas (AP) - Brittney Griner scored 21 of her 26 points in

the first half and No. 3 Baylor bounced back strong with a 75-48

victory over Kansas State on Wednesday night.

The Lady Bears (25-2, 12-1 Big 12), coming off a loss at Texas

Tech that ended their 21-game winning streak and knocked them out

of the No. 1 spot in the polls, scored the game's first seven

points. They led 22-6 only 8 minutes in after Kimetria Hayden's

layup.

Griner's 21 points at halftime were only two less than Kansas

Melissa Jones finished with 11 points and nine rebounds for

Baylor.

Jalana Childs scored 22 points and Brittany Chambers had 15

No. 5 Texas A&M (23-3, 11-2) in the Big 12 standings with three

league games left.
