    There is a girls high school player in Houston named Brittany Griner, who is simply unbelievable. She's 6-8 and dunks routinely -- not a typical dunk you see from a female-- but two-handed rim-rattlers. She had 44 points, 17 rebounds and eight blocks in state semifinal game. Check out the picture on the link below that went with the story.

    This girl is really good. Her state final will be on Fox Sports Southwest tonight at 11, I think. I know they are tape-delaying it so everyone can watch that all important Mavericks game.

    Is she a senior? If so, where is she going to school?

    god. damn. solid.

    and yes, she is impressive. we ran the story and youtubed her. thing is, she's still pretty raw and only will become much, much better ... which probably will make her the best women's player in the history of the game.

    A junior? Sweet lord almighty. She could be the women's game equivalent to Chamberlain.

    How can she be a junior and already signed w/ Baylor? Is there an early early signing period in girls bball I don't know about?

    Oh, my bad. I thought I read she was a junior.
     
  12. She's going to be more dominant than Courtney Paris ever was. Kim Mulkey's probably going to hire Secret Service to guard her.
