Young hits Big 12 rebound record, Baylor tops Colorado

WACO, Texas (AP) -- Sophia Young enjoyed her senior moment.

Playing in her final game at Baylor's Ferrell Center, Young had
20 points and grabbed two rebounds to become the Big 12's career
rebounding leader in the No. 10 Lady Bears' 86-40 victory over
Colorado on Wednesday night.

"It was pretty emotional," Young said. "It hasn't really sunk
in yet that it's our last game here. I had a great four years
here."

Tricia Abbott scored 12 points, and Chameka Scott and Jordan
Davis added 11 apiece for Baylor (20-5, 10-4). Young moved one
ahead of the previous mark of 1,223 career rebounds set by Texas'
Stacy Stephens.

The Lady Bears reached 20 wins for the sixth straight season,
all under head coach Kim Mulkey-Robertson.

"The seniors did exactly what you hope on Senior Night,"
Mulkey-Robertson said. "We were very fortunate it was a game in
which the crowd could acknowledge them."

Jackie McFarland and Caley Dow had 12 points each to lead
Colorado (8-19, 2-11).

Baylor took command early with a 33-8 lead with just over five
minutes remaining in the first half. Young keyed the offense with
10 points in the opening period as the Lady Bears led 41-16 at the
break.

Baylor extended its margin to as much as 47 points, at 72-25,
with just under 8 minutes left to play.

The Lady Bears scored 37 points off 22 turnovers by the
Buffaloes, and had a 36-18 advantage in scoring in the paint.

"It was a rough night for us," Colorado coach Kathy
McConnell-Miller said. "It was just total domination, offensively
and defensively."

The attendance of 8,111, pushed Baylor's total home season
attendance to 100,316 -- the first time in history the school broke
the 100,000 mark.
