WACO, Texas -- Sarah Andrews scored 20 points, Queen Egbo and NaLyssa Smith each had a double-double and No. 5 Baylor beat Morehead State 73-28 on Tuesday night.

The Bears (7-1) held the Eagles to 20% shooting (11 off 55) in their 64th consecutive nonconference home victory.

 

Egbo had a career-high 16 rebounds while scoring 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting and was one of five Baylor players with a game-high four assists. Smith had 10 points and 11 rebounds.

Andrews was 6 of 8 from 3-point range as Baylor finished 13 of 29 (45%) from deep. Ja'Mee Asberry scored 12 points while going 4 of 12 beyond the arc.

Morehead State (1-5) failed to reach double digits in any quarter. Jada Claude scored eight points and Julan McDonald had six as the pair combined to go 6 of 25 from the field.

Baylor closed the first half on a 14-3 run for a 37-17 halftime lead. Andrews had two of the Bears' four 3-pointers during that stretch.
