Iowa falls to Baylor in the NIT-Championship game

Pierre Jackson had his fourth straight double-double with 17 points and 10 assists to lead Baylor to the first National Invitation Tournament title in school history with a 74-54 win over Iowa on Thursday night.



Cory Jefferson scored 23 points and Isaiah Austin had 15 points and nine rebounds for the Bears (23-14), who reached the tournament final five years ago, but never had won it before.



Mike Gesell led Iowa (25-13) with 13 points and Aaron White had 12. Hawkeyes start Devyn Marble was held to six points.



Baylor reached the title game with a disjointed, but ultimately winning, effort against BYU in Tuesday night's semifinal.

The Bears looked much more complete on Thursday night.
