— Brittney Griner scored 21 points and blocked 10 shots to help No. 17 Baylor rout Kansas, 70-47, on Sunday night.

Shanay Washington scored 16 points, and Kelli Griffin had nine points, nine assists and eight rebounds for the Bears (21-7, 8-6 Big 12). Baylor made its first nine shots and quickly opened a double-digit lead en route to the easy win.

Carolyn Davis scored 15 to lead Kansas (15-12, 5-9).

The Jayhawks hit just 36.1 percent of their field-goal attempts, but held Baylor to 9.1 percent from beyond the three-point arc.

Each team hit just one three-pointer. KU was 1-for-6 from long range, while Baylor was 1-for-11.

Baylor went up 19-9 on a three-point play by Washington with 14:19 left in the first period. The Bears led by a dozen twice in the first half before an eight-point run by Kansas cut its deficit to 27-23 with 4:44 to play.

Monica Engelman hit a basket and two free throws during the stretch for Kansas.

That eight-point spurt was Kansas’ only sustained scoring run. The Jayhawks didn’t score more than four consecutive points at any other time.

Engelman, who with Davis has helped make up for the injury losses of Danielle McCray and Angel Goodrich, had just four points on 1-for-9 shooting.

KU will travel Wednesday to Nebraska. Tipoff will be 7 p.m.

Love Bonnie, if you idiots cant see the talent level improvement, you have no clue. yes, the conference record could be better, but she is building a program, not a one hit wonder. This young team is a blast to watch and will turn the corner next season. thanks Bonnie.

Gee folks, I don't see all gloom and doom in Bonnie's time here, the play here has definitely improved...not to the level needed, I would agree. I do see a group who are not emotionally lit up by this Coach; if you ever watch her during a game it's the same stern look with arms folded across her chest...where is the emotion, the love of the game, the inspiration? Winning doesn't always happen because of the plays you call or the athletes you put on the floor, but in close games (girl, have we had our share) can you inspire them to reach beyond what the play can bring. I don't think Bonnie and crew can...because I haven't seen it yet.

What an embarrassment. KU cannot seem to get the women's basketball team beyond Division 2 performance levels. This coach has had enough time. It is time to do a Mangino on her.

KU still sports a women's team? Who knew?

Bonnie Hendrickson has been a miserable failure to this point. Her salary should go towards academics. Can't believe Lew hasn't sh1tcanned her yet.

Terrible. You would think that, with our basketball tradition, that Bonnie could figure out a way not to embarrass herself year after year. What a mess.

Fire her and bring Marion back. At least Marion won a couple. Jesus.

Typical Bonnie-era team: start hot with a puff pre-conference schedule, generate some buzz, get mostly hammered in the conference, offer lots of excuses, miss the big dance, and hope for a chance to save face in the NIT.

If Bonnie had a weight problem and slightly more salty language wouldn't she be long-gone by now?
