Make room for Baylor’s 6-foot-8 star Brittney Griner in the NCAA Women’s Basketball history book. Griner just became the second woman ever to dunk the basketball in an NCAA tournament. The top-seeded Baylor team rolled to a 76-57 win over ninth-seeded Florida. After the game she said,  “I think my team got fired up a little bit more than me. I got a little bit more fired up, I think, on one of the blocks I had.” She added, “But it definitely felt good throwing it down.”



“That wasn’t just a barely-over-the-rim type of dunk. That was a monster dunk,” Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said. “I think Brittney is so conscious of people writing good or bad about the dunk, that she’s scared to get excited sometimes and celebrate a dunk, because she’s been written about in a negative way. I said, `Honey, if I could dunk it, I’d do backflips down the floor.'”

Griner has performed the slam dunk before during warmups and has actually dunked the ball six times in her career. Aside from the highlight of the night, Griner went 8 of 14 from the field with nine rebounds and six blocks.
