WACO, Texas (AP)- Kalani Brown scored 21 points and top-seeded Baylor overwhelmed much smaller Texas Southern 119-30 on Saturday night in the most lopsided women's NCAA Tournament game ever.

The Lady Bears (31-3) were ahead 22-0 after Alexis Jones, on her first shot in her first game since Feb. 20, hit a 3-pointer just more than 6 minutes into the game.

The 79-point margin broke the previous record 74-point win by Tennessee over North Carolina A&T (111-37) in 1994.

Baylor's 119 points were the most ever scored in regulation of a women's NCAA Tournament game, surpassing the previous record 116. Ohio State scored 116 in a 1998 game, and UConn matched twice, including earlier Saturday.

Joyce Kennerson had 19 points for Texas Southern (23-10), which made the NCAA Tournament for the first time after winning the SWAC Tournament.

Brown, at 6-foot-7 about 3 inches taller than Texas Southern's tallest player, was 9-of-10 shooting. All her baskets came in the paint, including a half-ending tip-in for a 61-13 lead.

Beatrice Mompromier, at 6-4, scored 22 points on 10-of-14 shooting off the bench for Lady Bears, and 6-4 freshman Lauren Cox had 17 points with three 3-pointers.

All 12 Baylor players who got in the game scored, six of them in double figures. All of them also had a rebound, and only one of them didn't have an assist.
