Women’s tournament roundup: Baylor off to fast start

No.1 Lady Bears cruise in opener

Brittney Griner had 33 points, 10 rebounds, 6 blocks, and another dunk, and defending champion Baylor opened the NCAA Tournament with an 82-40 victory over Prairie View A&M on Sunday night in the Oklahoma City Regional at Waco, Texas.

Griner’s record 15th dunk was the first of several plays that drew big roars from the crowd with the game well in hand in the second half. The Lady Bears (33-1), the overall No. 1 seed, won their 31st straight game since an early-season loss to Stanford.
