MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Bria Holmes scored 16 points to lead No. 7 West Virginia to a 67-60 victory over Kansas on Tuesday night for at least a share of the Big 12 women's championship.
The title for West Virginia (27-3, 16-2 Big 12) is its first since 1991-92 when it was in the Atlantic 10.
No. 9 Baylor needed a win later Tuesday at Iowa State for a piece of its fourth consecutive conference title.
Asya Bussie and Crystal Caldwell added 14 points apiece for the Mountaineers.
CeCe Harper scored 19 points and Natalie Knight added 17 for Kansas (12-18, 5-13).
After the game, West Virginia's players gathered arm-in-arm and joined fans in singing John Denver's "Country Roads," the school's unofficial anthem. A trophy presentation was held afterward and the players took turns cutting down the nets.
