            === Griner, Baylor make easy work of No. 6 Kentucky ===
 
 Waco,  TX (Sports  Network) -  Brittney Griner  scored 27  points on  11-of-14
 shooting,  as  the No. 1  Baylor Lady  Bears crushed the sixth-ranked Kentucky
 Wildcats, 85-51, in the Tip-Off Classic.
 
 Griner,  the  reigning consensus National  Player of  the Year, also had eight
 rebounds, five blocks and three steals in Baylor's (2-0) 42nd consecutive win.
 
 Odyssey  Sims chipped in  18 points and Destiny Williams added 14 points and a
 game-high 12 rebounds for the reigning national champs.
 
 A'dia  Mathies and  Bria Goss  paced  Kentucky (1-1)  with 12  and 11  points,
 respectively, but shot a combined 22 percent (7-of-32) from the floor.
 
 Kentucky,  which  blew out Delaware State  by 40 points on Saturday, made only
 two field goals in the final 11 minutes of the first half.
 
 The Lady Bears, who shot 51 percent for the game, ended the half on a 27-6 run
 for a healthy 46-19 cushion at the break.
 
 With  the outcome  essentially decided, Baylor rested its regulars late in the
 second half with a tough game against fourth-ranked Stanford looming Friday.
