Texas women beat Oklahoma 59-46 to get to Big 12 final

DALLAS (AP) - Imani McGee-Stafford had 11 points and 10 rebounds as Texas advanced to its first Big 12 tournament championship game since 2004 with a 59-46 win over Oklahoma on Sunday.

McGee-Stafford's layup with 5:15 left wrapped up a 14-0 run that put the Longhorns (22-9) up by 10 points.

Brady Sanders also had 11 points for preseason Big 12 favorite Texas, which plays in the title game Monday night against regular season champion Baylor. The Lady Bears are going for their fifth consecutive tournament championship.

Oklahoma (20-11) made only 26 percent of its field goals (15 of 58), and went without one for more than 10 minutes in the first half before Gabbi Ortiz made a 3-pointer with six seconds left.

Peyton Little and Gioya Carter each had 11 points for the Sooners, who led 34-30 on a 3-pointer by Carter with 10:35 left before the late Texas run.
