Baylor Women Rally Past WVU

MORGANTOWN (AP) — Once Kalani Brown and Baylor got busy on the boards, they were fine.

Brown put up her third straight double-double with 18 points and 12 rebounds, Kristy Wallace scored 25 points and third-ranked Baylor rallied in the second half to beat No. 20 West Virginia 83-72 on Sunday.

The Lady Bears (19-1, 9-0 Big 12) trailed 37-28 midway through the second quarter and were down 47-41 at halftime. Wallace and Brown led a 10-2 scoring run to open the second half.

Baylor finished the game shooting 35 of 65 (54 percent) from the field. WVU (17-5, 5-5) started out impressively, but made just 2 of 13 in the fourth quarter.

The Lady Bears outrebounded the Mountaineers 41-25, dominating the second half on the glass 23-8.

“We kind of separated ourselves in the second half rebounding,” Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said.

Wallace came within two points short of matching the career high she had at No. 6 Texas on Thursday. Dekeiya Cohen added 13.

Naomi Davenport scored 27 points for injury-plagued West Virginia. Teana Muldrow added 21 points and Chania Ray had 12.
