Rebecca Woodberry scored on a layup off the opening tip and then started making 3-pointers for San Jose State at No. 9 Baylor on Tuesday night.

Woodberry and the short-handed Spartans were only able to keep up for about 6 1/2 minutes, before falling behind for good and losing 113-73 when the Lady Bears extended their nation's-best home winning streak to 64 games.

''Short-handed is us. It's going to be us for a while, so we've got to play through that,'' first-year coach Jamie Craighead said. ''Really for me, it was about playing a team that we know can defend and score. And I thought if we could maybe come out of the game scoring 70 to 80 points, we could take something away from this game.''

San Jose State (4-4), with only eight players in uniform, had a 23-18 lead with 13:40 left in the first half when Woodberry made her third 3, from well beyond the line on the right wing not far from Baylor coach Kim Mulkey standing on the sideline.

Baylor (7-0) then went on a 14-0 run in less than 3 minutes, going ahead 32-23 on consecutive 3-pointers by Makenzie Robertson, both on passes from Odyssey Sims. The Spartans missed their only two shots and had three turnovers in that span.

Woodberry finished with 19 points, while Classye James had 17 and Ta'Rea Cunnigan 16 for San Jose State.

''For them, I think it's really important to play in a basketball environment like this, to come where fans support when it's good times and bad times, to play in front of this many people in this kind of environment, it's what you hope your kids would play in in the first round of an NCAA tournament, so for us, that's hopefully the future of our program,'' Craighead said.

Sims scored 29 points and had 13 assists to become the Baylor career leader in that category.

''Odyssey's great,'' Robertson said. ''If you get open, she'll get you the ball. Even if you don't think you're open, she'll get you the ball.''

Freshman forward Nina Davis had 15 points in 17 minutes for Baylor while Robertson scored 13 points, Khadijiah Cave had 12 and Chardonae Fuqua 10 for Baylor. Niya Johnson had 14 assists and eight rebounds.

It was the first game in 10 days for the Lady Bears, who next have their biggest test before Big 12 play when they play No. 5 Kentucky on Friday night in the Dallas Cowboys' stadium.

Sims, who entered the game as the Big 12 scoring leader and No. 3 nationally with 27.3 points per game, also had five steals and five rebounds with one turnover in 27 minutes. She now has 505 career assists.

''Does anyone really defend her? She's got to be the best point guard in the country, and probably the best player in the country,'' Craighead said. ''It was fun to watch her a little bit, you kind of catch yourself watching her.''

Needing only two assists to overtake Angela Tisdale's school record of 493, Sims had that in less than 3 minutes. She had 10 assists by halftime, and had 17 points as the Lady Bears led 63-38.

''After they announced it, I was aware of it,'' Sims insisted about the record. ''It's really not that important, not to me. Like Coach said, I came here to win championships and have a good senior year.''
