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.
