Brittney Griner scored 30 points and No. 1 Baylor celebrated a Big 12 title already in hand with dozens of former players in the stands for a 67-47 victory against Texas on Saturday.

Griner outscored the Longhorns by herself in the first half, finishing with 20 of the Lady Bears' 30 points, nine of their 22 rebounds and four of six blocks.

Baylor (26-1, 15-0 Big 12) finished the first half with an 11-2 run for a 30-16 lead in its 24th consecutive victory. The Lady Bears extended a pair of record streaks to 54 straight home wins and 37 in a row in conference. All three streaks are currently the longest in the nation.

Chassidy Fussell led Texas (10-16, 3-12) with 16 points but was just 7 of 20 from the field with six turnovers.
