OKLAHOMA CITY -- LaceDarius Dunn hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 1:12 remaining and Baylor ended a 24-game losing streak against Texas, advancing to the Big 12 championship game for the first time with a 76-70 victory Friday night.

Kevin Rogers scored 20 points and Henry Dugat added 17 as the ninth-seeded Bears (20-13) kept their desperate NCAA tournament hopes alive with their third upset in as many days. The only team to advance to the Big 12 title game with a lower seed was 10th-seeded Missouri, which did it in the tournament's inaugural year in 1997.

No team seeded lower than third has ever won the tournament.
