KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Brittney Griner had a career-high 45 points, 10 rebounds and seven blocked shots, leading No. 1 Baylor to an 86-65 rout of Kansas State on Friday in the Big 12 tournament semifinals.
The junior phenom finished 19 of 28 from the field to better her career scoring mark of 41 points, set in the Lady Bears' regular-season finale against Iowa State. Her total also set the single-game record for the women's Big 12 tournament.
Griner got a standing ovation when she checked out with just over 2½ minutes remaining.
Baylor (34-0) will play Oklahoma or defending national champion Texas A&M on Saturday as it attempts to become the first program, men's or women's, to finish a season 40-0.
Brittney Chambers had 18 points to lead Kansas State (19-13), which has lost 14 straight to Baylor and must now await its fate with the NCAA tournament selection committee.
