Brittney Griner Becomes Second Women’s Player to Dunk in NCAA Tournament Game (Video)

Baylor center Brittney Griner has accomplished all sorts of historical feats in her three years so far at Baylor.

The 6-foot-8 junior made history yet again Tuesday night when she became the second women’s college basketball player to dunk in an NCAA tournament game, according to CBS News.

With top-seeded Baylor up 11 early in the second half of the Bears’ second-round matchup with Florida, Griner received a pass deep in the paint and proceeded to throw down with one hand.

It was the sixth dunk of the All-American’s career, which trails only Tennessee’s Candace Parker, who had seven. Parker dunked twice in a 2006 first-round game against Army.

From there, the Bears rolled to a 76-57 victory, improving to 36-0 and advancing to a Sweet 16 date with fourth-seeded Georgia Tech.

Griner finished the game with 25 points, nine rebounds, four assists and six blocked shots. Check out her one-handed jam in the video below.
