KANSAS CITY, MO (AP)Odyssey Sims scored 18 points and Brittney Griner had 15 points, nine rebounds and five blocks to power No. 1 Baylor over Texas Tech 72-48 in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 women’s tournament on Thursday.

The Lady Bears (32-0) move into Friday’s semifinal against Kansas State. Against the Lady Raiders (19-13), they built a 24-point halftime lead and kept up the pressure in the second half.

While Griner dominated inside, Sims came through with four three-pointers. Monique Smalls led Texas Tech with 11 points and Shauntal Nobles had nine points and six rebounds.

The Lady Bears, who had two single-digit wins over the Lady Raiders in the regular season, didn’t let Texas Tech hang around for long in the quarterfinals. Baylor needed a few minutes to get adjusted to Tech’s zone defense but never looked back after taking a 6-4 lead 4:04 into the game.
