Megan Rogowski scored 21 points Tuesday night, including 5 of 8 from distance, and No. 25 DePaul dominated Georgetown 91-72 to end its regular season.

DePaul (24-6, 15-3) is seeded No. 1 in the March 8-11 Big East Conference tournament and claimed its first conference regular-season championship with wins over Villanova and St. John's last week.

DePaul opened with a 9-2 run capped by a Jasmine Penny layup, then led 47-36 at halftime after an 8-2 run in which Rogowski hit consecutive treys.

A 9-2 second-half run capped by another 3 by Rogowski boosted DePaul's lead to 61-45, and the Blue Demons pulled away.

Penny scored 17, and Chanise Jenkins, Jessica January and Megan Podkowa scored 13 apiece. Conference assists leader Brittany Hrynko dished out 10 assists.

Logan Battle led Georgetown (10-20, 4-14) with 17, Natalie Butler had 15 and 13 rebounds, Andrea White scored 14 and Faith Woodward 11.

No. 7 West Virginia 67, Kansas 60: Bria Holmes scored 16 points to lead West Virginia to a victory over Kansas for a share of the Big 12 championship.

The title for West Virginia (27-3, 16-2 Big 12) is its first since 1991-92 when it was in the Atlantic 10.

West Virginia finished tied with Baylor atop the conference. The Lady Bears own the tiebreaker and will be the top seed in the Big 12 tournament.

Asya Bussie and Crystal Caldwell added 14 points apiece for the Mountaineers.

CeCe Harper scored 19 points and Natalie Knight added 17 for Kansas (12-18, 5-13).

After the game, West Virginia's players gathered arm-in-arm and joined fans in singing John Denver's "Country Roads," the school's unofficial anthem. A trophy presentation was held afterward and the players took turns cutting down the nets.

No. 9 Baylor 70, Iowa State 54: Nina Davis scored 26 points to help Baylor clinch a share of the Big 12 title by beating Iowa State.

Sune Agbuke had nine points and 11 rebounds for the Lady Bears (26-4, 16-2 Big 12), who finished the regular season tied with West Virginia atop the conference. The Lady Bears have the top seed in the Big 12 tournament due to a tiebreaker.

Baylor won despite a season-low 11 points from star Odyssey Sims, the nation's leading scorer at 30.2 points per game entering play. But her first basket was a big one, as it put the Lady Bears ahead 59-44 with 4:39 left.

Nikki Moody had 17 points and Hallie Christofferson scored 14 for Iowa State (20-9, 9-9), which was outrebounded 48-32.
