NORMAN, OK -- Blake Griffin had 20 points and 17 rebounds for his 16th double-double of the season, and No. 6 Oklahoma routed Baylor 95-76 on Saturday for the Sooners' seventh consecutive win.

Oklahoma (19-1, 5-0 Big 12) is 34-5 all-time against Baylor (15-4, 3-2) and extended its winning streak against the Bears to 29 games, going back to 1977. Baylor has never beaten Oklahoma since the Big 12 began play with the 1996-97 season.

Taylor Griffin scored 18 points and Willie Warren scored 17 on 6 of 8 shooting for the Sooners, who shot a season-high 58% from the field (35 of 60) and extended their home winning streak to 16 games.
