WACO, Texas (AP) No. 2 Baylor will be able to get by just fine for now while letting preseason AP All-America post Lauren Cox rest and recover from a foot issue.

Te'a Cooper had 23 points and 10 assists, Queen Egbo scored a career-high 21 points starting in place of Cox and the Lady Bears beat Houston Baptist 112-42 on Thursday night for their 32nd victory in row. The defending national champions have won their first three games this season by an average margin of nearly 71 points.

"We'll rest her as long as we can rest her," coach Kim Mulkey said of Cox. "At the end of the day, nonconference means nothing. We're shooting for a conference championship. We're shooting for NCAA Tournament play."
