Iowa State didn't get solid contributions from just one player--no, it got great efforts from just about everyone during its Big 12 Tournament title win over Baylor. 

Five players scored in double figures, despite a 0-for-13 start from the field. 

The Bears jumped out to an 11-1 lead in the opening minutes and continuously pestered Cyclones shooters. 

"They were playing hard, but we knew we could take it up another gear," Melvin Ejim said during a televised post-game interview with ESPN. The senior scored 10 points and had nine rebounds. 

Georges Niang had two key free throws and a late bucket that topped his 13-point, nine-rebound night. 

Kenny Chery led the Bears with 16 points. Brady Heslip had 14. 

Baylor has never won the Big 12 tourney. Neither has a team from Texas. Iowa State won it in 2000.
