Baylor wins Big 12 opener 86-79 in OT over Texas

WACO, Texas (AP) - Cory Jefferson scored 25 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and made the tiebreaking free throws with 50 seconds left in overtime as Baylor opened Big 12 Conference play with an 86-79 victory over Texas on Saturday.

Pierre Jackson added 24 points for the Bears (9-4). Jefferson and Jackson combined to score all but 1 of Baylor's 18 points in overtime. Jackson had 11 of them, including nine free throws.

Javan Felix had 26 points and nine assists for Texas (8-6), and Sheldon McClellan scored 21 points.

The Bears were without coach Scott Drew, who served the first game of a school-imposed 2-game suspension from Big 12 games. The suspension was announced in April, after an investigation revealed hundreds of impermissible telephone calls and text messages to recruits.
