WACO, Texas (AP) - Odyssey Sims scored 28 points, Nina Davis had 14 points and seven rebounds and No. 9 Baylor beat UTSA 92-62 Saturday night.

The Lady Bears (6-0) extended the nation's longest home winning streak to 63, rolling through three games in as many nights by an average score of 93-49 before a nine-day break.

The Roadrunners had a season high in points for a Baylor opponent and the closest margin in six home games for the Lady Bears. Rice had the previous low margin at 33 points.

Kamra King led the Roadrunners (2-4) with 11 points, while Miki Turner and Mathilde Hergott scored 10 apiece.

Niya Johnson had 10 points and a game-high eight assists for Baylor.

The Lady Bears return Dec. 3 with another home game against San Jose State before playing at the Dallas Cowboys' $1.2 billion stadium in a men and women's basketball doubleheader between Kentucky and Baylor on Dec. 6. All four teams are currently ranked.

Baylor's other wins in the three-day stretch were 99-31 over Savannah State and 88-54 over Northwestern State.

UTSA had 20 turnovers and just eight baskets in the first half. The futility was best illustrated during a seven-minute scoreless stretch when the Roadrunners had just five shot attempts and five turnovers while Baylor's 17-0 run pushed its lead to 22-4.

The Roadrunners finished with 26 turnovers.

Sims' first nine points were on 3-pointers, and her fifth from long range in the first half gave her 24 points, matching UTSA's total and putting the Lady Bears up 53-24. Sims would have outscored the Roadrunners in the first half, but a layup after an offensive rebound fell off the rim just before the halftime buzzer.

Sims gave Baylor its first 30-point lead with a pair of free throws that made it 63-33 with 14:51 left in the game, and she went to the bench less than a minute later. She has scored at least 23 points in all six games this season.

Baylor's senior point guard had three assists and needs one to tie Angela Tisdale for the school's career record at 493 set in 2008.
