Big 12 women's finals set

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP)  Nina Davis took little credit for her 24-point outburst.

That, she said, should go to Kristy Wallace. Baylor's point guard set a Big 12 Tournament record with 15 assists to help the second-ranked Bears defeat No. 24 Kansas State 88-71 on Sunday in the semifinals.

"She gets pretty much all the credit, 99.1 percent," Davis said. "The other half is us finishing the shot. We go as Kristy goes. All season long, she's been our Energizer Bunny. She never gets tired."

West Virginia moved on with a 62-59 win over Texas.

Wallace matched her career high for assists in a game.

"She is just a great player," Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said. "She can play through fouls. She can play through blood. She can play through a turnover, and she just is somebody you would sure like to be on the receiving end of her passes because she just gives it to you where you can finish."
