Baylor’s Brittney Griner, No. 42 at right, celebrated with teammates including Melissa Jones, No. 5, after Baylor beat Duke 51-48 in the NCAA Memphis Regional championship.

Well the Duke women didn’t make it….ah, shucks!

Celebrated freshman Brittney Griner caught a pass, spun around and hit a short jumper with 45 seconds left to propel fourth-seeded Baylor to a 51-48 win over No. 2 seed Duke on Monday night for its second trip ever to the Final Four.

Duke led the entire second half and held a 46-38 advantage with 4:59 left before a pair of free throws by Kimetria Hayden launched a 13-2 run for the Lady Bears (27-9).

Hayden, also a freshman, stole an inbounds pass by Joy Cheek and dished it to Melissa Jones for a layup with 2:10 left that pulled the Lady Bears within one. Jones, who finished with 10 points, also hit a pair of free throws with 26 seconds left, forcing Duke (30-6) to scramble.

Two 3-point attempts by Cheek in the last 17 seconds bounced off the rim as the Blue Devils’ shot at their first Final Four since 2006 slipped away.

Baylor’s men’s team lost to Duke 78-71 on Sunday in the South Regional final. It was the first time ever that there had been the same regional final matchup in both brackets since the women’s tournament began during the 1981-82 season, according to STATS LLC.
