Griner dunks on Gamecocks

Jacksonville State stands to get some exposure on ESPN tonight and tomorrow, but not for what one of its teams did.

Baylor’s 6-foot-8 freshman Brittney Griner became the seventh woman to dunk in a college basketball game Tuesday night when she dunked flat-footed at the 15:05 mark of the first half against the Gamecocks.

It gave the eighth-ranked Lady Bears a 17-3 lead. Baylor scored the first 13 points of the game.

Griner dunked in an exhibition game and in warmups of Baylor’s game with Tennessee, but hadn’t dunked in a real game until Tuesday night.

Baylor leads at halftime 51-23.
