Baylor claimed its third consecutive and fourth overall Big 12 regular season title to earn the No. 1 seed in the 2013 Phillips 66 Big 12 Women's Basketball Championship. The event will be held Friday-Monday, March 8-11 in Dallas' American Airlines Center.
The Lady Bears went undefeated (18-0) in conference play for the second consecutive season, marking just the fourth time a team has completed Big 12 play unbeaten. Prior to last year's BU squad, the two previous undefeated teams were 16-0 in league games before the adoption of the 18-game round robin schedule.
Other seeds include 2. Iowa State, 3. Oklahoma, 4. Texas Tech, 5. Oklahoma State, 6. West Virginia, 7. Kansas, 8. K-State, 9. Texas and 10. TCU.
The Phillips 66 Big 12 Women's Basketball Championship returns to Dallas for the fourth time, but makes its first appearance in the American Airlines Center - home of the NBA's Dallas Mavericks and the NHL's Dallas Stars.
