OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Baylor is back in a familiar place.
Kalani Brown scored 23 points in 21 minutes, and the top-ranked Lady Bears breezed past Kansas State 88-60 in a Big 12 Tournament semifinal on Sunday. Baylor (30-1) will go for its ninth tournament title in 11 years on Monday night against No. 19 Iowa State.
“I’m pumped,” Brown said. “I’m excited playing for another championship. That never gets old.”
Juicy Landrum scored 19 points and Lauren Cox had 18 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists for the Lady Bears (30-1), who won their 22nd straight game. Baylor shot 45 percent from the floor and outrebounded the Wildcats 54-32.
“That’s a team that, I believe, has a chance to win the national championship,” Kansas State coach Jeff Mittie said. “It’s a team that has all the weapons.”
