SAN ANTONIO - Too big. Too strong. Too fast. Baylor was too much of just about everything for Creighton and Doug McDermott to handle. And because of it, the sixth-seeded Bears are rolling out of Texas toward California and the NCAA tournament Sweet 16 after an impressive 85-55 win Sunday night in the West Regional. Isaiah Austin and Canadian Brady Heslip each scored 17 points and Baylor used suffocating defence to shut down McDermott, ending the career of one of college basketballs most prolific scorers. "We did a good job making it tough on him," Bears coach Scott Drew said. McDermott, who averaged 27 points this season, finished with 15 but had just three in the first half as Baylor built a 20-point lead. McDermott ranks fifth on the NCAA career scoring list with 3,150 points. Baylor (26-11) had five players score in double figures and shot 64 per cent in one of the dominant performances of the tournament. The rest of the West bracket may want to pay attention to this one. A team that looked like a wreck six weeks ago with a 2-8 start in the Big 12 is brimming with confidence to match all that muscle in the lineup. "We take pride in people hating on us, and we love proving people wrong," Austin said. "Everybody has bought into the one goal that we have in mind and that is winning a national championship." Baylor plays No. 2 seed Wisconsin on Thursday in Anaheim. In Baylors two previous trips to the Sweet 16, it fell one game short of the Final Four. McDermott carried the Bluejays back to the round of 32 for the third year in a row, and had done it in spectacular style, leading the nation in scoring with a sublime shooting touch and uncanny knack to slither his way through defenders for layups and putback baskets. McDermott spurned the chance to turn pro after last season, and this was the year the Bluejays and their senior-laden lineup were expected to drive Creighton farther into the NCAA tournament than any Bluejays team before them. But Baylors defence gave him nothing: neither space to shoot nor even chances for his teammates to pass him the ball. And for all the talk about Creightons maturity and bonding, Baylor made the Bluejays look small and slow. "This is the worst weve played all season, and it just stinks that its the last one. But that doesnt take away from all my memories here. Its tough to go out this way," McDermott said. Baylor came out blazing from long range, knocking down five 3-pointers in the first 7 minutes. Kenny Chery of Montreal made three and when Heslip, who was 0 for 6 in Fridays win over Nebraska, swished his first against Creighton, he mockingly shook the fingers on both hands as he loped back down the court. "We were just expecting it to be a fight, to be honest," said Heslip, whos from Burlington, Ont. McDermott, meanwhile, struggled to find any kind of space inside or out against Baylors zone defence and badly misfired on his first attempt, a baseline shot that missed everything. This rout was just beginning. The Bears flexed their muscle early and often with a lineup built for the rigours of the Big 12. Austin is 7-foot-1 and he teamed with 6-10 forward Cory Jefferson in the frontcourt. When Creighton missed a shot, the typical result was three Bears under the basket with no Bluejays around. Baylors bench was just as intimidating. When reserve forward Rico Gathers pushed his 6-foot-8, 270-pound frame through the lane for a layup, two Creighton defenders were powerless to stop him. By the time Baylor had built a 20-point halftime lead, McDermott had taken only three shots, made one and had two fouls. "We knew we had them on their heels," Austin said. "We wanted to step on their throat." Even when Creighton got a spark Ethan Wragge made two 3-pointers early in the second half Baylor simply matched basket for basket, denying any hopes of a rally. Soon it was showtime as Baylors lead kept growing. Jefferson slammed down an alley-oop dunk for a 58-34 lead with just more than 12 minutes to play. Gathers added another rim-rattler a few minutes later, his broad shoulders soaring to the basket to punctuate the night. When McDermott left the game with 2:31 to play, he hugged his father, Creighton coach Greg McDermott, before retreating to the bench and burying his face in a towel. "Im not sure it was Baylor being that good or us being that bad," Greg McDermott said. "Over the course of the season youre going to have a few clunkers. We had one at the wrong time."

The Angels came through with just enough offence to seal a sweep of Philadelphia. Howie Kendrick delivered a go-ahead, two-run single in the sixth inning, and Weaver pitched six resilient innings in the Angels 4-3 victory over the Phillies on Wednesday night. Weaver (13-7) yielded two runs and eight hits for the Angels, improving to 6-1 in his last 10 starts despite trailing 2-1 in the sixth. "You keep this team in the game, and the offence is going to come through," said Weaver, who improved to 16-4 in interleague play. "If you can limit those guys, well always have a chance." Brennan Boesch drove in two runs for the Angels, who salvaged a 3-4 homestand by sweeping two games from the last-place Phillies. Los Angeles (70-49) pulled within 2 1/2 games of Oakland atop the overall major league standings. The Angels once-powerful offence struggled throughout the homestand, but came alive in the sixth inning of both games against the Phillies. One night after Los Angeles scored seven runs in the sixth, it scored three more against A.J. Burnett (6-13), who had shut down the Angels in the first five. Albert Pujols started the rally with a one-out double, and Kendricks bases-loaded bloop landed just inside the right-field line. Boesch, recalled from the minors Tuesday, then added an RBI groundout. He also had a sacrifice fly in the second. "We didnt kill the ball, and the early runs werent there, but we broke through and held a lead," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "Right now, weve got to scratch and claw if youre not going to score runs. Thats the only way youre going to beat goood pitchers like Burnett.ddddddddddddquot; Burnett gave up five hits and four walks over six innings, dropping to 0-5 in his last six starts. "I dont feel snakebit," Burnett said. "Its in my control. I mean, it definitely hasnt gone the way I wanted it to. Im very discouraged. Im not going to lie. Im not a bit happy, but the season is not over." Marlon Byrd and Jimmy Rollins had early run-scoring singles for the Phillies, who have lost nine straight games to the Angels since 2003. Grady Sizemore tripled and scored on Domonic Browns groundout in the eighth against Joe Smith, but Huston Street pitched a perfect ninth for his seventh save. Street has made 10 scoreless appearances since the Angels acquired the All-Star closer from San Diego last month. TROUT SNARED: Mike Trout went 0 for 4, capping an ugly 4-for-29 homestand for the Angels MVP candidate. Trout, who grew up a Phillies fan in southern New Jersey, saw his average drop from .305 to .294 in seven games. A NEW WEAVER: The Angels longtime ace pitched two days after his wife, Kristin, gave birth to their second child, daughter Josie. Weaver will bring his family home from the hospital on Thursday before catching up with the Angels in Texas on Friday for the series opener. "My wife let me get my rest," Weaver said. TRAINERS ROOM: Angels: Tyler Skaggs had elbow ligament replacement surgery Wednesday. He wont return until 2016. Reliever Mike Morin, who cut his foot, is scheduled to pitch in the minors Thursday, hoping to return to the Angels on Saturday. UP NEXT: Phillies: After a travel day, Cole Hamels (6-6, 2.37 ERA) takes the mound in San Francisco. Angels: After a day off, Garrett Richards (12-4, 2.54 ERA) opens a weekend series at Texas.
