WACO, Texas (AP) – Alexis Jones scored a career-high 25 points, Nina Davis had 24, and point guard Niya Johnson added a double-double in her return to the lineup to help No. 4 Baylor bounce back from its first loss with a 78-68 victory over No. 18 Oklahoma on Sunday.
Johnson had 10 points and 11 assists while playing all 40 minutes for the Lady Bears (14-1, 1-1 Big 12). The senior missed Baylor’s conference opener, a 52-45 loss at Oklahoma State on Wednesday night, because of a bone bruise in her ankle.
Oklahoma (10-3, 1-1) had an early five-point lead, but never led again after Baylor finished the first quarter with an 8-2 run that was started by consecutive jumpers by Johnson.
Peyton Little scored 19 points for Oklahoma. Gabbi Ortiz added 14, and Kaylon Williams and T’ona Edwards had 11 each.
