Brittney Griner is arguably the greatest women’s basketball player in NCAA history, and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban says he would consider drafting the All-American from Baylor.
Brittney Griner’s unparalleled college career is over, earlier than expected and without another NCAA championship. Her place among the all-time best is secure.
Baylor (34-1), in the NCAA round of 16 for the fourth year in a row, plays Louisville (26-8) on Sunday night in Oklahoma City.
Brittney Griner had 33 points, 10 rebounds, six blocks and another dunk, and defending champion Baylor opened the NCAA tournament with an 82-40 victory against Prairie View A&M on Sunday night.
Brittney Griner has proven to be far more than just the girl who can dunk in her four seasons at Baylor.
The Bears, who since their NIT runner-up finish in 2009 have made it two NCAA regional finals, had bigger aspirations this season than a No. 2 seed in the NIT.
After leading the Bears on a mighty second-half comeback against No. 14 Oklahoma State, and scoring 31 points in the game, Jackson could only wonder what might have been following a 74-72 loss to the Cowboys in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 tournament.
After months stuck in mediocrity, the Big 12 is starting to show a glimmer of promise as the NCAA tournament approaches.
The top-ranked and defending national champion Lady Bears have a couple of days off after winning their third Big 12 tournament title in a row, to go with three consecutive regular-season championships.
Brittney Griner and top-ranked Baylor can now turn their attention to again winning the biggest prize.
The Lady Bears received all 40 first-place votes for the third straight week and have won 48 straight Big 12 regular-season and tournament games. They play No. 23 Iowa State for the conference title Monday night.
The Big 12 women’s tournament could be like the regular season: an exercise to determine who finishes second to Baylor.
