For more on Brittney Griner's triple-double performance against the West Virginia Mountaineers yesterday, SB Nation's West Virginia site Blogger So Dear has links including Griner and Baylor Lady Bears coach Kim Mulkey's post-game press conference and Bob Hertzel of the Times West Virginian opining on whether Griner is the best college basketball player ever.
A few additional fun facts from this game:
- Griner is the first-ever opposing men's or women's basketball player to record a triple-double at the WVU Coliseum.
Griner's fifth triple-double ties the record for most in Big 12 conference history. The other player: Shalee Lehning, Kansas State alum and former Atlanta Dream point guard.
- The crowd of 13,447 at WVU Coliseum was a program record.
People might want to keep an eye on this Griner person for the WNBA draft. Feel free to discuss her and the rest of this draft class in our draft open thread today.
