NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Ekpe Udoh had 20 points and 13 rebounds, and
Baylor won an NCAA tournament game for the first time in 60 years
by beating Sam Houston State 68-59 on Thursday.

Udoh also had five assists, two blocks and two steals for the
third-seeded Bears (26-7), who broke open a close game down the
stretch. Their first-round victory in the South Regional was their
first in the tournament since beating BYU in 1950.

LaceDarius Dunn scored 13 points for Baylor. His short, spinning
fade and one-handed jam fueled a late 8-0 run that clinched it.

Gilberto Clavell had 23 points and Preston Brown added 13 for
14th seed Sam Houston State (25-8), which tied it at 55 on a short
floater by Ashton Mitchell with 3:48 to go.

The game remained tied until Quincy Acy dunked to put Baylor
ahead for good with 2:30 left.
