Top-seeded Baylor rolls 66-30 over Prairie View

Brittney Griner and Brooklyn Pope each had 17
points as top-seeded Baylor opened the NCAA tournament with a 66-30
victory Sunday night over Prairie View, whose miserable shooting
translated into the lowest-scoring half ever in the tournament.
The Lady Bears (32-2) raced out to a 16-0 lead at home while
Prairie View (21-12) missed its first 12 shots before finally
getting a layup from Waco native Robin Jones more than 9 minutes
into the game.
Baylor, which went to the Final Four last season when the
6-foot-8 Griner was a freshman, led 34-8 at halftime. That was the
fewest points in a half ever by a women's team in an NCAA
tournament game.
Griner also had eight rebounds and six blocks in her team-high
28 minutes.
