No. 20 A&M stops No. 8 Baylor

March 2, 2008


— Morenike Atunrase had 24 points, and No. 20 Texas A&M; claimed a surprisingly easy 72-53 victory over eighth-ranked Baylor to extend its Big 12 conference-best winning streak to five games.

Sixteen of Atunrase's points came in a key run in the first half that stretched A&M;'s lead from one point to 19.

Baylor won its first meeting with A&M; this season with a last-minute three-pointer, but this time the Aggies took over midway through the first half and led by double-digits for the rest of the game.

No. 17 Oklahoma State 73, Texas Tech 54

Stillwater, Okla. - Sophomore Andrea Riley scored 21 points to pass the 1,000-point plateau for her career.

No. 21 Kansas State 81, Missouri 52

Manhattan - Shalee Lehning matched her career high with 21 points, and Kansas State moved into a first-place tie with Baylor in the Big 12.
