Baylor was up only 25-21 in the second quarter when Kentucky was called for a flagrant foul. Wallace made the two free throws, Morris added layup to make it a four-point trip and start a 12-2 run.
Kentucky was back within seven before Landrum made two 3s and Wallace added one from long range in a 67-second span just before halftime for a 50-34 lead.
Jaida Roper added 12 points for Kentucky, while Taylor Murray and Makenzie Cann had 10 each.
