    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kelsey Bone's 16 points led Texas A&M (No. 14 ESPN/USA Today, No. 22 AP) past Oklahoma 79-66 in the semifinals of the Big 12 women's tournament Friday.

    The third-seeded Aggies (22-9) will face top-ranked Baylor for the championship Saturday.

    Skylar Collins scored 15 points, Alexia Standish 13 and Sydney Carter 10 for Texas A&M, which becomes the first school in league history with five straight appearances in the title game. Kristi Bellock's eight rebounds spearheaded a 38-27 edge on the boards.

    Whitney Hand's 24 points paced the second-seeded Sooners (20-12), who shot just 38 percent (20 of 53). Aaryn Ellenberg added 13 and Sharane Campbell 11.

    An 8-0 run by the Aggies broke a tie and put them ahead 25-17 with 8:18 left in the first half. They never trailed again.

    Oklahoma closed within 49-45, but Texas A&M ripped off a 12-3 run for a 61-48 lead with 9:35 left to virtually seal it.
