Brittney Griner had 26 points, 13 rebounds, and five blocks in Baylor’s national championship win over Notre Dame Tuesday in Denver. Griner helped lead Baylor to a 40-0 season and was so dominant that Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw said Griner is “like a guy playing with women.”
Here’s how the exchange went in the postgame press conference:
Q: Muffet, have you ever seen anyone who has ever been able to impact the game at least down low as Brittney did and obviously as she did tonight?
COACH McGRAW: No. I think she’s one of a kind. I think she’s like a guy playing with women. It’s just there’s so many things that she can do that I’ve not seen a lot of women‑‑ well, really, you know, there’s been some guards that had some skill like that. But as a post player she’s the best I’ve ever seen.
