Averee Fields stole an errant pass and drove for a go-ahead layup with 12 seconds left and No. 11 West Virginia beat No. 6 Baylor 71-69 Sunday, the Lady Bears' first conference home loss in four years.

West Virginia (26-3, 15-2) won its ninth consecutive game to match Baylor for the Big 12 lead with one game left in the regular season.

Odyssey Sims, the nation's leading scorer, had 39 points in her final regular-season home game. But the senior guard also had 10 turnovers, including the pass that Fields got in the Baylor end of the court before missing a last shot.

Baylor (25-4, 15-2) had won 35 consecutive Big 12 home games since losing their final regular-season game of the 2009-10 season to Texas.
