In a thrilling afternoon showdown at the WVU Coliseum, Baylor and West Virginia showed why they are two of the best men's college basketball teams in the nation.

No. 3 Baylor earned a hard-fought 94-89 overtime win over the No. 5 Mountaineers that earned the Bears their first conference championship in 71 years.

Jared Butler led the way with 25 points, while Davion Mitchell poured in 20. Matthew Mayer added 18 points off the bench.

Baylor bounced back nicely from Saturday's loss to Kansas, which was the Bears' first setback of the season, with a gritty performance in Morgantown that earned them the Big 12 Conference title.
