TCU vs Baylor

Baylor 51, TCU 40

  •  

WACO, Texas (AP) - Cory Jefferson had 15 points, including consecutive baskets to start Baylor's tiebreaking run, and the Bears beat TCU 51-40 Saturday night in the first meeting in more than 10 years between the instate rivals which are now Big 12 foes.

Jefferson's floater with 15 minutes left broke a 28-all tie and put Baylor (11-4, 3-0 Big 12) ahead to stay.

After a TCU (9-7, 0-3) miss, Jefferson had a shot blocked by Adrick McKinney, but Baylor's big forward got the ball right back and responded with a two-handed slam dunk.

By the time Rico Gathers tipped in a missed 3-pointer only 4 1/2 minutes later, Baylor had capped a 14-2 run to stretch the lead to 42-30.

Pierre Jackson, Baylor's senior point guard, had 11 points and six assists. Isaiah Austin had 10 points and eight rebounds.

Charles Hill Jr. had 12 points to lead TCU.
