Griner, No. 1 Baylor roll early in dominant 80-47 win over K-State in Big 12 women's quarters

Brittney Griner had 19 points, 13 rebounds and a career best nine assists, and No. 1 Baylor built a quick 25-point lead in an 80-47 victory against Kansas State in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 women's tournament Saturday.

Griner's effort came five days after she scored a Big 12-record 50 points in a win over the Wildcats in her final regular season home game.

Kansas State (15-17) was within three points well into the second half of last weekend's loss in Waco, but this time the Wildcats were down 21-3 just 7 minutes in when coach Deb Patterson called her third timeout.

Destiny Williams had 20 points to lead the Lady Bears (30-1), who clinched their third straight season with at least 30 wins.

Brittany Chambers led Kansas State with 21 points.
