Spectroscopic factors to low-lying negative-parity states in Be11 extracted from the B12(d,He3)Be11 proton-removal reaction are interpreted within the rotational model. Earlier predictions of the p-wave proton-removal strengths in the strong-coupling limit of the Nilsson model underestimated the spectroscopic factors to the 3/21- and 5/21- states and suggested that deviations in the 1+ ground state of the odd-odd B12 due to Coriolis coupling should be further explored. In this work we use the particle rotor model to take into account these effects and obtain a good description of the level scheme in B11, with a moderate K mixing of the proton Nilsson levels [110]1/2 and [101]3/2. This mixing, present in the 1+ bandhead of B12, is key to explaining the proton-pickup data.
