Baylor tops Ohio State for Gulf Coast title

Alexis Peterson paced the team with a season-high 29 points and Brittney Sykes added 16 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists. Baylor outrebounded DePaul 14-7 in the first 10 minutes of play, and both teams kept their opponents off the free throw line with disciplined defense.

"I'm happy that we played so well as a team and that I was able to get some buckets today", Schaible said. DePaul didn't get their first points of the half until four minutes in, with a three-pointer by senior guard Brooke Schulte.

"Everybody was finding me", Prince said. Grant is averaging 11.2 points and 8.4 rebounds.

Ohio State: Mitchell is now the Buckeyes' career leader in 3-pointers made, getting No. 271 to fall late in the third quarter.

"I don't like giving up 72 points and I sure don't like giving up 15 3's", Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said. Cummings was aggressive from the start, looking for her shot and scoring eight early points to give the Colonials a 24-10 lead after the first quarter.

Schaible carried the Colonials with six early points in the third quarter to help GW open the half on a 10-1 run.

"I have some mixed emotions right now", FGCU head coach Karl Smesko said to FGCU Athletics. "And when we're playing like that I feel like its going to be hard to stop us".

Baylor (7-1) pushed its lead each quarter against Ohio State (5-2), opening the game on a 6-0 run, going scoreless for the last four minutes of the first quarter but still holding onto a 19-15 lead.

Ohio State may have found its heir apparent running mate for Kelsey Mitchell after Ameryst Alston's graduation at the end of last season, as Sierra Calhoun broke out for the second time in the past three games. The Lady Bears finished shooting 60 percent from the field and 54 percent from the three-point range.

The play was 29 Lead, and it will go down in history as how Ohio State beat MI in one of the greatest games ever played by the Big Ten's most storied rivals. Flack and Mooney led the Coyotes with 13 points apiece. No DePaul player had more than three rebounds. "We need our backups to come in and keep pushing and let the tempo not drop, and they did an wonderful job at scoring, rebounding, and just helping us out really and giving us a rest".

The Lady Bears will advance to the Gulf Coast Showcase Championship game tomorrow at 7:30 pm against the victor of tonight's matchup between Ohio State and Syracuse.
