WACO, Texas — Freshman sensation Perry Jones scored 24 points, LaceDarius Dunn 16 and Baylor took control with a strange sequence at the end of first half in a 76-57 victory over Oklahoma State on Saturday.

Jones, projected by many to be a No. 1 overall NBA draft pick this summer if he becomes a one-and-done player, had at least 20 points for the fourth time in five games. He hit 7 of 9 shots, and is shooting 71 percent (36 of 51) from the field in conference games for Baylor (13-5, 3-2 Big 12).

The Bears went ahead to stay by ending the first half with a 13-3 run that included a missed 3-pointer that hit nothing but the floor followed by an alley-oop dunk on the same possession.

Markel Brown scored 16 points to lead Oklahoma State (14-5, 2-3), which has lost five in a row in Waco.
