Few women’s basketball programs move the needle more than Baylor.

On Saturday, TCU plays at Waco’s Ferrell Center, epicenter of Big 12 women’s hoops and where Baylor has won 68 games in a row.

Though Baylor lost three-time All-American Brittney Griner to graduation, the seventh-ranked Bears (13-1, 3-0 in Big 12) haven’t missed a beat.

Baylor has extended its winning streak in Big 12 games to 52 straight. It leads the nation in rebound margin (16.0) and is the country’s second-highest scoring team (95.4 points a game). The Bears’ only loss this season came in four overtimes at AT&T Stadium in Arlington against Kentucky, 133-130.

Senior point guard Odyssey Sims leads the nation in scoring, at just over 32 points a game, and is coming off a career-high 48-point performance against West Virginia on Wednesday.

Sims, an Irving MacArthur grad, will test drives against TCU center Latricia Lovings, who passed milestones of 600 rebounds and 250 blocks in TCU’s last outing, a 52-50 victory against Kansas.

Saturday will mark the 30th meeting between TCU and Baylor, with the Bears holding a 24-5 series advantage, including 12-2 in Waco.

On Monday the Bears host unbeaten and top-ranked Connecticut.
