AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Baylor coach Kim Mulkey summed up the Lady Bears night as "ugly" and sometimes downright hard to watch.

That mattered little when they left the court and got to dress up a postgame celebration with a Big 12 crown they don't have to share.

NaLyssa Smith scored 23 points and No. 6 Baylor used a dominant third quarter to build a lead, then held a late Texas rally to earn a 64-57 victory Monday night that locked up sole possession of the league championship for the Lady Bears.
