WACO, TX -- Blake Griffin had 18 points and 10 rebounds for his Oklahoma record-tying 21st double-double this season and the second-ranked Sooners beat Baylor 78-63 Wednesday night for their 12th straight victory.

Griffin, who had some emphatic dunks, got plenty of help as the Sooners (24-1, 10-0 Big 12) won their 30th consecutive game over Baylor (15-9, 3-7), a streak that dates back to December 1977.

Austin Johnson added 17 points for the Sooners, including a game-changing run of 3-pointers. Willie Warren and Juan Pattillo each had 14 points.

Curtis Jerrells had 19 points to lead Baylor (15-9, 3-7), which has lost six straight games. It is the longest losing streak for the Bears since starting 0-6 in 2005-06, the freshman year for
seniors Jerrells, Henry Dugat and Kevin Rogers.
