FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Taurean Prince scored 22 points and Johnathan Motley led a dominant effort inside with 22 points and nine rebounds to carry No. 19 Baylor to an 86-71 victory against TCU on Saturday night.

The Bears (21-8, 10-6 Big 12) outrebounded the Horned Frogs 45-21 and had a 25-17 edge in second-chance points while matching a school record with their sixth Big 12 road win.

On the same day Kansas clinched at least a share of the league's regular-season title, Baylor ended up in a three-way tie for third with third-ranked Oklahoma and No. 25 Texas with two games remaining before the conference tournament. No. 14 West Virginia (11-5) is alone in second.

Malique Trent had a career-high 25 points to lead TCU (11-18, 2-14), which fell to 0-9 against the Bears since joining the Big 12 and has lost all 10 games against ranked opponents this season.
