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.

    Can you dunk? Give her credit, she’s got talent and can do more than just dunk. Look at the points and rebounds.

    This should be considered the FIRST one. Candace Parker needed a running start and barely got above the rim. I don’t like Baylor or Griner, but that was a real dunk.

    This young woman is a special talent. To all you haters out there, get a life !!!!! She is uniquely tall for a woman and has a talent that most of you putting her down only wish you had half of.

     Hey you doucebag, this is a woman and it’s not a common practice for them. And yes, this is a woman. Think about how you would feel if this was your sister or cousin maybe; would you feel good reading comments such as yours in regards to her ??? Can you even dribble a basketball ???
