Top 25: No. 7 West Virginia escapes Kansas to earn conference title

No. 7 West Virginia defeats Kansas 67-60

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- It took 13 seasons for West Virginia coach Mike Carey to finally cradle a conference championship trophy.

After years of being perennial also-rans in the Big East and last year in their inaugural season in the Big 12, the Mountaineers have that coveted title.

Bria Holmes scored 16 points to lead No. 7 West Virginia to a 67-60 victory against Kansas on Tuesday night. The Mountaineers will share the regular-season championship with No. 9 Baylor, which defeated Iowa State 70-54 later Tuesday for a piece of its fourth consecutive conference title.

No. 9 Baylor beats Iowa State 70-54

AMES, Iowa -- Nina Davis scored 26 points to help No. 9 Baylor clinch a share of the Big 12 title by beating Iowa State 70-54 on Tuesday night.

Sune Agbuke had nine points and 11 rebounds for the Lady Bears (26-4, 16-2 Big 12), who finished the regular season tied with West Virginia atop the conference. The Lady Bears have the top seed in the Big 12 tournament due to a tiebreaker.

Baylor won despite a season-low 11 points from star Odyssey Sims, the nation's leading scorer at 30.2 points per game entering play. But her first basket was a big one, as it put the Lady Bears ahead 59-44 with 4:39 left.

Nikki Moody had 17 points and Hallie Christofferson scored 14 for Iowa State (20-9, 9-9), which was outrebounded 48-32.
