OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Nina Davis scored 22 points to help No. 4 Baylor beat No. 7 Texas 79-63 Monday night in the Big 12 women's tournament championship game.

Alexis Jones scored 16 points for the Lady Bears. She was named the tournament's most outstanding player after averaging 15.7 points and 7.7 assists in three games.

Baylor (33-1) shot 50.9 percent from the field to win its 20th straight game. Beatrice Mompremier scored 15 points and Niya Johnson added 11 for the Lady Bears.

Baylor swept the conference's regular-season and tournament titles for the sixth consecutive year and won all three games against the Longhorns this season. Texas' loss to Baylor last week in the regular-season finale cost the Longhorns a share of the regular-season conference championship.

Lashann Higgs scored 15 points and Imani Boyette added nine points and 11 rebounds for Texas (28-4), which was seeking its first tournament title since 2003.
