OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Everything seemed to be going West Virginia's way.
Baylor superstar Odyssey Sims was hobbled by a left ankle injury and the Lady Bears' emerging star, Nina Davis, played with foul trouble through much of the Big 12 championship game.
West Virginia didn't take advantage. Sims scored 15 of her 19 points in the second half to help No. 9 Baylor defeat No. 7 West Virginia 74-71 Monday night and earn an automatic berth in the NCAA tournament.
