#SicEm MT @espnstatsinfo: 3 dunks in game for Griner. 18 dunks in her career. All previous dunkers had 15 combined. es.pn/YAVYAR— Baylor Lady Bears (@BaylorWBB) March 27, 2013
Kate Morrison of SB Nation's Baylor site Our Daily Bears summarized a dominant performance from Lady Bears center Brittney Griner, which included a record three dunks.
Baylor fans didn't have to wait long for Brittney Griner to throw down her 16th career dunk, as she brought the Ferrell Center to their feet in the 16th minute of the first half, extending Baylor's lead to 43-18. She showed off her defensive prowess as well, bringing nearly as many cheers with an impressive block of Leonor Rodriguez a few plays before that, and recorded a double-double at the half with 16 points and 12 rebounds. Griner went on to dunk two more times, a record for any NCAA WBB game ever, extending her career record to 18 with at least one game left to play. She finished with 33 points, 22 rebounds, 4 blocks, 4 assists, and a steal, and left her final game at the Ferrell Center with 6 minutes left in the second half to thunderous applause.
Baylor now advances to the Sweet 16 where they will face the Louisville Cardinals in Oklahoma City.
