No. 14 Mizzou Beats Baylor For First Big 12 Men's Title

By  | 

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - DeMarre Carroll scored 20 points and No. 14
Missouri ended Baylor's surprising run through the Big 12
tournament, grinding down the Bears 73-60 to win their first
postseason conference title in 16 years.

Matt Lawrence added 13 points and his hot shooting helped the
third-seeded Tigers (28-6) pull away early in the second half to
spoil what would have been an unprecedented run to the title for
Baylor.

Baylor made it as far as the finals with a string of three
straight upsets that included a quarterfinal stunner against No. 11
Kansas, the three-time defending tournament champion and top seed.

Curtis Jerrells scored 16 to lead the ninth-seeded Bears
(20-14), who finally ran out of gas in their bid to become the
first Big 12 team to claim the tournament title by winning four
games in four days.
