Brittney Griner dunks in Baylor’s NCAA tournament game (Video)
Baylor center Brittney Griner became just the second woman to dunk in an NCAA tournament game when she threw down on Florida Tuesday night. The dunk was Griner’s first of the season and sixth for her career, putting her one behind Candace Parker’s career record. Parker is the only other woman to dunk in an NCAA tournament game — something she accomplished twice against Army in 2006.
Griner finished with 25 points and nine rebounds in Baylor’s 76-57 second-round win over Florida. The Bears are the top seed in the Des Moines region of the tournament and have advanced to the Sweet 16.
