WACO, Texas (AP) Freshman guard Honesty Scott-Grayson scored 15 points on 6-of-7 shooting to lead seven Baylor players in double figures as the fourth-ranked Lady Bears easily got past Southern University 94-49 on Thursday night even without All-America post player Kalani Brown.

The 6-foot-7 Brown sat out after rolling her ankle earlier this week, ending her streak of 113 consecutive games and 64 starts in a row. Coach Kim Mulkey had said Brown was available if needed, but the Lady Bears (4-0) overmatched Southern even without the post.

Baylor led throughout, and was already up 28-7 late in the first quarter after a 20-3 spurt when seven different players combined on the nine baskets in that span of less than five minutes.

Moon Ursin, Queen Egbo, NaLyssa Smith, Chloe Jackson and Caitlin Bickle all had 11 points for the Lady Bears, while Lauren Cox scored 10. Jackson had eight assists while Cox blocked five shots.

Courtney Parsons had 11 points for Southern (2-2).
