KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Taurean Prince had 24 points and 13 rebounds, Rico Gathers added 13 points and No. 22 Baylor's baffling zone defense shut down No. 23 Texas in a 75-61 victory in the Big 12 tournament quarterfinals Thursday.

The fifth-seeded Bears (22-10) opened a 15-point lead in the first half, then used coach Scott Drew's trademark defense to keep the fourth-seeded Longhorns (20-12) from coming all the way back.

Baylor will play top-ranked Kansas or Kansas State in Friday night's semifinals.

Connor Lammert had 15 points, Kerwin Roach had 13 and Shaquille Cleare had 12 for the Longhorns, but the bigger story was who got shut down: All-Big 12 guard Isaiah Taylor scored just eight, all in the second half.

The Longhorns have lost four straight to Baylor in the Big 12 tournament.
