Baylor beats Texas A&M for Big 12 crown

Odyssey Sims had a season-high 26 points, ranked Baylor cruised to a 50 victory over No. 22 Texas A&M in the Big 12 tournament championship game.

National Player of the Year candidate Brittney Griner followed up her record- setting performance with only 11 points and six blocks for the Lady Bears. Griner set a Big 12 tournament record with a career-high 45 points against Kansas State on Friday.

Baylor (34-0), which opened the game on a 14-0 run, wrapped up their second straight title and fourth overall.

Sydney Carter had 12 points to pace Texas A&M (22-10), which became the first school in league history to make five straight appearances in the title game.

The Aggies were victorious in 2008 and 2010, but the three losses have all come at the hands of Baylor. In 2011, Texas A&M exacted its revenge by topping the Lady Bears in the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament en route to the national title.
