The previous record was held by Washington’s Kelsey Plum, who scored 57. The Big 12 Conference record had been held by Baylor’s Britney Griner at 50.

“There’s not a lot to say after that one. That was a really incredible performance by Ayoka Lee,” head coach Jennie Baranczyk said. “You obviously never want to be on the wrong side of an NCAA record, but I thought that she  was absolutely phenomenal and we just didn’t have an answer.”
