Lady Bears Capture Big 12 Title

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (March 10, 2012) -- Top-ranked Baylor proved Saturday it has more than just Brittney Griner.

Odyssey Sims poured in a season-high 26 points to help make up
for an off afternoon by her All-American teammate, and the Lady
Bears rolled to a 73-50 victory over No. 23 Texas A&M in the Big 12
tournament championship game.

The Lady Bears (34-0) wrapped up their second straight title and
fourth overall by beating the Aggies for the third time this year.

Baylor also beat Texas A&M to win the tournament title in 2009
and again last season, when the Aggies returned the favor in the
NCAA tournament.

Sydney Carter had 12 points to lead Texas A&M (22-10), which
played its third straight game without top scorer Tyra White. She's
been hampered by her left foot and coach Gary Blair elected to rest
her for the NCAA tournament rather than risk any more damage
against Baylor.
