Video: Brittney Griner dunks in rout of Prairie View A&M in NCAA Tournament

New, 2 comments

ESPN's highlights from the Baylor Lady Bears' 82-40 win over the Prairie View A&M Lady Panthers in the first round of the 2013 NCAA Tournament, which included another Brittney Griner dunk.

Yes, Baylor Lady Bears center Brittney Griner dunked in her first game of her final NCAA Tournament, but Kate Morrison of SB Nation's Baylor site Our Daily Bears also took a few moments to focus on another aspect of the assumptive #1 WNBA Draft pick's game: her passing ability.

Both Brittney Griner and Odyssey Sims collected double-doubles tonight, with Griner scoring 33 points and grabbing 10 rebounds (3 assists, 1 steal, 6 blocks) and Sims putting up 12 points and 10 assists (5 steals)...One of the best examples this year of Griner's improved court vision came in the early minutes of the second half. She was passed the ball to the left of the paint, and PV pulled the defender off Jordan Madden to collapse into a doubleteam on Griner. As a result, Griner simply dumped the ball to the then-open Madden for assist on the easy lay-in.

Her improved passing ability is something mentioned in our preview of the Oklahoma City region as well and for those looking at skills she might bring a WNBA team it's an important to recognize.
