WACO, Texas (AP) -LaceDarius Dunn scored 30 points, Quincy Acy had 10 dunks among his 24 points and No. 21 Baylor wrapped up its winningest regular season in 64 years with a 92-77 victory over Texas on Saturday.
The win assured the Bears (24-6, 11-5) a first-round bye in the Big 12 tournament.
Tweety Carter, one of two seniors playing his last home game for Baylor, had 16 points and 10 assists. His reverse layup with just under 6 minutes left in the first half broke a tie, igniting a 12-4 half-ending run that put the Bears ahead to stay.
Gary Johnson had 25 points for the Longhorns (23-8, 9-7), who have lost eight of their 14 games after a 17-0 start made them the No. 1 team in the country on Jan. 11.
Seven weeks later, the Longhorns are unranked and headed into the 12-team league tournament as the No. 6 seed after being swept in the regular season by Baylor for the first time since 1998. Texas coach Rick Barnes had been 11-0 in games at Waco.
The Bears have their most wins in the regular season since the 1945-46 team that won 25 games. Baylor was 24-15 last season, but seven of those wins came in the postseason when the Bears were runners-up in the Big 12 tournament and the NIT.
Acy put on a high-flying show for a Ferrell Center-record crowd of 10,562, including four dunks in a span of five Baylor field goals that pushed the lead to double figures in the second half.
After Ekpe Udoh rebounded an Acy miss, Udoh looked at Carter outside then flipped the pass inside to a wide-open Acy for a slam. Texas then missed a shot and Carter responded with an ally-oop pass to Acy for another slam that made it 55-44.
A.J. Walton drove for a layup, then Acy slams for the next two Baylor baskets - sandwiching four straight points for Texas - and the Bears led 61-50 before Carter added a 3-pointer.
Damion James and Jordan Hamilton each had 18 points for Texas, which shot 51 percent (28 of 55) from the field.
The Bears shot 55 percent (36 of 66), with more than half of their points coming in the paint. They also outscored Texas 11-0 on fastbreak points.
After Carter's tiebreaking basket in the first half and a Texas miss, Acy extended the lead when he took a step along the baseline and delivered a tomahawk slam with his right hand.
The Bears went up 40-34 when Dunn had a steal and got the ball to Acy for another slam, then Dunn closed out the first-half scoring with a basket of his own.
Carter was only 1-of-6 shooting 3s, but two of his misses in the first half led directly to three points for Baylor. Anthony Jones had a putback layup after the first one, and Acy had a two-handed putback slam on the other one. Both made free throws after being fouled.
