WACO, Texas — Nina Davis had 26 points in 23 minutes, Niya Johnson had 18 assists and No. 4 Baylor rolled to another lopsided victory, 97-39 over Oral Roberts on Thursday night.

The Bears (11-0) wrapped up a five-game homestand over 17 days in which they won each by an average margin of 53 points.

Alexis Jones added 17 points, and Dekeyia Cohen had 12 for Baylor.

Baylor will play No. 23 Miami (10-0) on Saturday night.

Oral Roberts (2-9) was down 6-0 after two turnovers in the first minute. The Golden Eagles lost their eighth game in a row, and were coming off a 19-point home loss to NAIA school Lyon College.

(13) DUKE 79, LIBERTY 41: Rebecca Greenwell had a career-high 26 points with eight rebounds and four 3-pointers in a win at Durham, North Carolina.

Azura Stevens added 13 points and Angela Salvadores scored 12 for Duke (8-2), which won its second in a row since a 66-55 loss on Dec. 6 to No. 2 South Carolina. Salvadores’ layup with 1:22 left in the first quarter sparked a 31-3 run that provided a 42-15 halftime edge.


(18) SMU 105, HAMPTON 72: Jordan Tolbert posted another big double-double, getting 20 points and 19 rebounds in a win at Dallas.

Tolbert helped the Mustangs (9-0) to their highest-scoring game since November 2010. SMU is off to its best start since going 10-0 to open the 1997-98 season.

SMU played its final game under the direction of associate head coach Tim Jankovich. Head coach Larry Brown served a nine-game suspension after the NCAA ruled in September that a former men’s basketball administrative assistant completed online course work for a student to help him be admitted to school. The Mustangs also are banned from postseason play this season, including the American Athletic Conference tournament.

(20) WEST VIRGINIA 86, MARSHALL 68: Jevon Carter scored 15 points and West Virginia used depth to win at home.

West Virginia (9-1) took control with a 16-1 run early in the second half to beat its intrastate rival for the fifth straight year and for the ninth time in 10 tries.

Daxter Miles Jr. added 14 points, Elijah Macon had 12, and Tarik Phillip 11.

ARKANSAS: Point guard Anton Beard will make his return to the court Saturday after missing the season’s first nine games following a summer arrest on forgery charges.

Beard, named to the Southeastern Conference’s All-Freshman team last season for the Razorbacks (5-4), was arrested in July after Fayetteville police said he was seen using and exchanging counterfeit $20 and $50 bills.


UTAH: The school signed junior college transfer Troy Williams to a letter of intent.

The 6-foot-2, 197-pound quarterback is transferring from Santa Monica College.

OHIO STATE: The Buckeyes were already missing suspended defensive tackle Adolphus Washington.

Now, No. 7 Ohio State could also be without injured defensive lineman Tommy Schutt when they play Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 1.

Schutt, a senior who started the first seven games before missing the next two after surgery to repair a fracture in his wrist, was injured during practice.

Washington, also a senior, was suspended by Meyer after being cited for a misdemeanor charge of soliciting for prostitution on Dec. 10.

DIVISION III: It will be familiar foes squaring off Friday night when Mount Union and St. Thomas of Minnesota meet in the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl at Salem, Virginia, for the Division III national champion.

It is a rematch of the 2012 showdown at Salem Stadium, which Mount Union won, 28-10.

Mount Union (14-0) is a regular in the title game, having advanced to an unprecedented 11 straight and every national championship contest except one since 2000.

The Tommies (14-0) are making their second appearance.
