KANSAS CITY, MO (AP) – Destiny Williams scored a career-high 21 points and Brittney Griner added 19 points, eight rebounds and five blocks to lead third-ranked Baylor to an 86-51 victory over Kansas, sending the Lady Bears on to the semifinals of the Big 12 Tournament.

Top-seed Baylor (29-2) had a dominant first half Wednesday, building a 43-19 lead at the break. The Lady Bears will meet the winner of the Kansas State-Iowa State game.

The Jayhawks (20-12) were led by Monica Engleman, who had 16 points, including four 3-pointers.
Baylor guard Melissa Jones, playing with sunglasses to protect a recent eye injury, had eight points, nine rebounds and six assists.

The 6-foot-8 Griner had eight points and four blocks in the first half, providing an intimidating factor in the lane that forced Kansas to mainly shoot from the perimeter.

Williams finished 10 of 13 from the field.
