Baylor women beat ISU in Big 12 title game

DALLAS (AP) — Brittney Griner scored 31 points and top-ranked Baylor won its third consecutive Big 12 tournament championship, rolling past No. 23 Iowa State 75-47 Monday night.

In a matchup of the Big 12’s top two seeds, the Lady Bears (32-1) and their 6-foot-8 senior star easily earned another trophy in their dominating run through the conference. Now the defending national champions can turn their attention toward the biggest prize.

Griner, already a two-time All-American, had 23 points by halftime, outscoring Iowa State by 10 on our own. Odyssey Sims added 20 points for Baylor.

Anna Prins had 20 points for the Cyclones (23-8), who were playing in their first Big 12 title game since 2007.

Along with the last three Big 12 tournament titles, Baylor has gone undefeated through the league the last two regular seasons for a 49-game conference winning streak.
