No. 10 Baylor blew the doors off of Providence from the opening tip and sprinted to a 61-36 victory on Wednesday in the first of two games for the Lady Bears at the West Palm Beach Classic.

The Lady Bears (10-0) got 14 points from Bella Fontleroy and 12 from Sarah Andrews, but Baylor set the tone with defense.

Already trailing 5-0 just 50 seconds into the game, Olivia Olsen made a layup on Providence’s second offensive possession. It was more than 13 minutes later in the middle of the second quarter when the Friars made their second field goal (Laryn Edwards’ short-range bucket) during the Lady Bears’ 17-2 run.

Providence finished 11 of 45 from the floor and 1 of 14 from 3-point range. Olsen scored a team-high 12 points with 10 rebounds.

Baylor, off to its best start since the 2015-16 season, plays South Florida on Thursday afternoon.
