(AP) Kenny Chery scored 20 points and had four assists, helping lead No. 23 Baylor to an 87-68 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette at home Sunday in an opening-round game of the Maui Invitational.


Chery's 3-pointer capped an early 15-5 run that put the Bears (3-0) ahead to stay after their sluggish start. Also in the spurt, he also had a jumper and an assist on the first of several impressive slam dunks by Cory Jefferson.


Brady Heslip added 19 points in his 22 minutes while Jefferson finished with 16 points and 10 rebounds. Isaiah Austin had eight points on just 3-of-9 shooting, but had six rebounds and eight blocked shots.


Elfrid Payton had 20 points and Shawn Long 16 to lead the Ragin' Cajuns (2-2). Both came in averaging more than 21 a game.


Baylor plays at home again Wednesday night, against Charleston Southern, before traveling 3,700 miles to Maui.
