    OKLAHOMA CITY -- Curtis Jerrells scored 19 points and Kevin Rogers had 10 points and a career-high 20 rebounds as Baylor dominated on the boards and beat Nebraska 65-49 Wednesday in the opening game of the Big 12 tournament.

    LaceDarius Dunn added 18 points on 4-for-9 3-point shooting and eight rebounds for Baylor (18-13), which won a first-round Big 12 tournament game for only the fifth time ever, but for the second time in the past three seasons.

    The ninth-seeded Bears, who had entered the tournament having lost 10 of their last 12 games, advanced to play top-seeded Kansas on Thursday.

    Ade Dagunduro scored 21 points for Nebraska (18-12), which now must hope for a berth in the National Invitation Tournament.
