Default Carrington’s 19 points lead No. 7 Baylor past Oklahoma

DiJonai Carrington scored 19 points, and No. 7 Baylor broke away from a halftime tie to beat Oklahoma 77-66 on Sunday.

Moon Ursin had 17 points and NaLyssa Smith added 16 for the Lady Bears (17-2, 12-1 Big 12), who shot 57% in their ninth straight win.

Madi Williams scored 21 points and Gabby Gregory added 19 for Oklahoma (8-10, 5-8), which was coming off impressive back-to-back wins over Iowa State and West Virginia.

Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said not to be fooled by Oklahoma’s record.

“We just beat what I consider the hottest team in the Big 12 right now,” she said.

Taylor Robertson finished with 11 points for the Sooners, but Baylor’s DiDi Richards hounded her and made it tough for her to get shots off. Robertson, one of the nation’s best 3-point shooters and Oklahoma’s No. 3 scorer for the season with 15.1 points per game, made 4 of 9 field goals in the game and 3 of 7 3-pointers.

“She’s been doing that her whole career at Baylor,” Mulkey said of Richards’ defense. “We know and accept how good Taylor Robertson is. DiDi, bless her heart, she’s the one who gets assigned to the best player on the perimeter and has throughout her career. What you saw from Didi — we see it every day. We see it in practice every day.”

Baylor won both games with the Sooners this season. The Lady Bears won the previous meeting 84-61 at home.
