WACO, Texas (AP) Davion Mitchell made seven 3-pointers while scoring a career-high 31 points, MaCio Teague added 18 points and No. 2 Baylor got another lopsided victory over Kansas State, 107-59 on Wednesday night.

After last month becoming the first opponent since 1992 to score 100 points at Kansas State in a 31-point victory, the Bears (15-0, 8-0 Big 12) jumped out to a 31-point lead in the first 11 1/2 minutes in the rematch. Teague already had 11 points with three 3-pointers, and Wildcats coach Bruce Weber had already used two of his timeouts by then.

Mitchell, whose previous career high had been 20 against Kansas State in the Dec. 19 game, finished 12-of-16 shooting, including 7-of-9 beyond the arc. His five assists included a pass to Matthew Mayer for a layup that made it 36-5. Only seconds after that, Mitchell had a steal that led to a short jumper by Jonathan Tchamwa Tchatchoua to cap Baylor's second run of 18 consecutive points already in the game. The Bears had another 18-0 run in the second half.
