Baylor pulls away in second half , knocks off Isles 70-46

Posted: Updated:

WACO, Texas (AP) - Manu Lecomte scored 23 points and No. 25 Baylor pulled away from Texas A&M-Corpus Christi for a 70-46 win Monday night.
    
The Bears (2-0) were down 20-19 late in the first half before scoring eight straight points to go ahead to stay. Terry Maston and Lecomte both had two free throws, before Lecomte hit a 3-pointer and Maston a jumper.
    
Maston finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds for Baylor, which used a 12-2 run midway through the second half to take control.
    
Nuni Omot added 12 points for the Bears, punctuating the win with a thunderous one-handed dunk with 2:15 to go that brought the crowd to its feet.
    
Joseph Kilgore led the Islanders (1-1) with 10 points and 11 rebounds.
    
Corpus Christi shot only 36 percent (21 of 58) overall and was only 3-of-18 on 3-pointers.
    
BIG PICTURE
    
Texas A&M-Corpus Christi: Neither team turned the ball over much, but the Islanders didn't take advantage when Baylor did. The Bears outscored them 15-0 off turnovers, and A&M-Corpus also didn't get much from the bench with nine points. Perry Francois was the Islanders' top reserve with six points, but he fouled out in only nine minutes of action.
    
Baylor: One game after setting school records for shooting with a 66.1 percent mark from the floor and 71 percent from 3-point range (12 of 17), the Bears struggled to get started offensively. Lecomte's 3-pointer with 2 minutes left in the first half were the first points for Baylor that didn't come in the paint or from the free throw line. The Bears shot 47 percent overall (25 of 53) and 26 percent on 3-pointers (5 of 19).
