No. 15 Baylor dominates Central Florida in Junkanoo Jam

FREEPORT, Bahamas (AP) -- Bernice Mosby scored 16 points as No. 15 Baylor defeated Central Florida 78-48 in the fourth annual Junkanoo Jam.

Angela Tisdale, Jhasmin Player and Danielle Wilson each had 10 points for the Bears. Francine Houston led the Golden Knights with 10 points.

"Not another day at the office," Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said. "Not when you're in the Bahamas. It's another day of work, but it's a little bit tougher when you look around outside your hotel room how beautiful it is. ... I thought we did a lot of good things."

Baylor (5-1) jumped out to a 24-12 lead with 8:30 remaining in the first half, never seriously challenged by the Golden Knights (1-5).

A pull-up jumper by Tisdale gave the Bears a 37-20 lead at the break. UCF missed 18 of its first 25 shots of the second half.

"We stepped up our defense a lot (today)," Mosby said. "That's one thing we always focus on."

Baylor's lead only grew in the second half as their depth was too much for the Golden Knights, whose only victory came Nov. 18 against Albany.

"I don't know that I focused on what Central Florida did," Mulkey said. "We're so young my focus is what have we done to that point and what can we do better. We played a lot of different combinations."

The Bears are 32-3 in their past 35 games during November.

"We're just having fun right now," Mosby said.
