LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Winning isn't getting old for Texas Tech.

"I don't think you could draw it up any better than this," coach Marsha Sharp said after the No. 7 Lady Raiders routed Baylor 105-52 Tuesday night to clinch their third straight Big 12 championship.

Aleah Johnson scored 22 points to lead Texas Tech (24-3, 13-3).

"This one is a little different because we had to scratch and claw and get it done in a lot of different places," Sharp said. "This one is awesome."

Plenette Pierson added 16 points, Tanisha Ellison 14, Keitha Dickerson and Amber Tarr 13 each and Katrissa O'Neal 10 for the Lady Raiders, who led 50-21 at halftime.

Baylor coach Sonja Hogg said her team was never in the game following its first scoreless four minutes.

"When we finally hit a shot and made it 10-3, I said, `OK, we're going to crank it up here,' but we really didn't and then it snowballed," she said. "We shot and shot and nothing would fall."

Monica Arnold led Baylor (7-19, 2-14) with nine points.

"Our first trip out here six years ago we got beat by 65 points, so I guess we improved tonight," Hogg said. "I don't know if anybody could have beaten them tonight. It didn't matter who you put out there - the Celtics, the Spurs - it didn't matter."
