WACO, Texas -- Baylor guard LaceDarius Dunn has become the Big 12's career scoring leader.

Dunn broke the conference mark with a free throw against No. 7 Texas on Saturday night that gave him 2,257 career points. That passed the 2,256 points Andre Emmett had at Texas Tech from 2001-04.

Dunn entered his final regular-season home game at Baylor needing five points to break the record. He had a basket on Baylor's opening possession, and another with 9½ minutes left in the first half before getting fouled 6 minutes later.

After missing his first free throw, Dunn made the second to break the record.

Dunn later added a 3-pointer, getting him within four of matching the Big 12 career mark of 389.
