KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Chelsea Whitaker's layup with 2.1 seconds to go to lifted top-seeded Baylor over Texas Tech 58-57 Thursday night in the semifinals of the Big 12 tournament.

After Alesha Robertson gave the Lady Raiders a 57-53 lead with just over 1 minute to go, Steffanie Blackmon hit a foul shot and then snuck in a put-back to draw within 57-56 with 16.5 seconds to go.

A foul sent Tech's Darrice Griffin to the free-throw line, but she missed the front end of a one-and-one and Baylor got the rebound. After calling a timeout, Whitaker got the inbounds pass and slashed through the lane for the game-winner.

Sophia Young had 18 points and 13 rebounds to lead Baylor (26-3), which awaits either Kansas State or Texas in Saturday night's championship game. Blackmon finished with 15 points and Whitaker added 12.

LaToya Davis scored 18 points for Texas Tech (23-6), which lost to Baylor for the third time this season. It's also the third time in the last four years Baylor has knocked Tech out of the Big 12 tournament.

Darrice Griffin added 11 points and Chesley Dabbs 10 for the Lady Raiders.

Cisti Greenwalt, Texas Tech's leading scorer, picked up her third personal foul midway through the first half and never got out of foul trouble, finishing with just three points.

But Davis picked up the slack inside, scoring 10 of the Lady Raiders' final 12 points - including a putback with 2 seconds to go - to take a 33-30 lead into the break.


 

 

The Lady Raiders led by as many as eight with under five minutes to go before Baylor outscored them 9-2 down the stretch.
