Baylor crushes K-State

DALLAS — 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 well into the second half of last weekend’s loss in Waco, Texas, 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).

Iowa State 77, Kansas 62: Chelsea Poppens had 24 points and 14 rebounds and Hallie Christofferson added 23 points as Iowa State defeated Kansas 77-62 in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 tournament on Saturday night.

Anna Prins scored 14 points for the second-seeded Cyclones (22-7).

Carolyn Davis had 17 points and Angel Goodrich 15 for the No. 7-seeded Jayhawks (18-13).

Oklahoma St. 59, Texas Tech 54: Kendra Suttles scored 16 points and Toni Young had 11 points and 18 rebounds to lead Oklahoma State past Texas Tech 59-54 in the Big 12 women’s tournament quarterfinals Saturday.

Young made it 55-52 Oklahoma State with 38 seconds left when she was fouled after an offensive rebound and made both free throws.
