2012 NCAA Women's Tournament, Baylor Vs. Stanford Final Score: Bears Defeat Cardinal For Title Game Spot

The No. 1 Baylor Bears improved to 39-0 on Sunday night and will face the No. 1 Notre Dame Fighting Irish at the Pepsi Center on Tuesday night for the 2012 NCAA Tournament title. Baylor can win its second NCAA Tournament title, last winning in 2005.

After playing a close first half (25-23, Baylor), the Bears pulled away by outscoring the Cardinal, 34-24. Brittney Griner wasn't the best player on the court, that title belonged to Stanford's Nnemkadi Ogwumike, but she tied for the team lead in points at 13 with Terran Condrey. Odyssey Sims chipped in 11 points. Destiny Williams led all with 10 rebounds.

Ogwumike scored 22 points and pulled down nine boards, but no one else from the Cardinal was able to do much more. Toni Kokenis was second on the team with nine points.
