WACO, Texas -- Odyssey Sims saw 6-foot-8 sophomore sensation Brittney Griner running down the court, and saw the look that only meant one thing for top-ranked Baylor."I know when we lock eyes, she's great at passing the ball to me over the defenders," Griner said. "So I just took off running and looked at her, and gave her that look like, 'All right, I'm ready.' And she gave it to me."
Voepel: Upset Denied
Texas A&M was confident it could beat Baylor. But not even a career night from the Aggies' Tyra White was enough to knock off the No. 1 team, writes Mechelle Voepel. Story
• Brittney Griner was held to just three points in the first half, but exploded in the second half to notch her 24th career double-double (26 points, 11 rebounds).
• Texas A&M got a career-high 29 points from Tyra White, but Baylor got the win and has now won 21 of the last 24 games in the series.
• Texas A&M's Danielle Adams, who scored 40 points in the Aggies' last game against Kansas, was held to nine points.
• Baylor trailed 47-38 with 10:12 remaining, but the Lady Bears used an 11-2 run to even the score at 49-49 with 5:52 left. They then closed the game on another 11-2 run in the final 3:32.
