High School Girl Dunker Brittney Griner Featured on ESPN

Brittney Griner

Griner, a 6-foot-7 junior center at Nimitz High School in Aldine, TX, has been dunking in games for most of her high school career.
Griner, who leads Texas 5A girls' basketball in points, rebounds and blocks, is the number two ranked junior in the nation, according to HoopGurlz.com. Griner has already committed to Baylor, becoming the star of the nation's best recruiting class for 2009 thus far. She picked Baylor over the Tennessee Lady Vols because it is closer to home.
Michael Wilbon and Tony Kornheiser, the hosts of the ESPN show, were amazed by her coordination and authority with her dunks.
Griner has grown seven inches since her freshman year and her father expects her to tap out at 6-foot-10 or 6-foot-11. She wears a size 17 shoe in men's and boasts an 86-inch wingspan.
As a sophomore, Griner averaged 23 points, 11 rebounds and six blocks per game for Nimitz, including six triple-doubles. Thus far this season, she have garnered a double-double in each game.
Griner is not just a dunker, but it is the cause of the attention she has been receiving lately. Griner is a prototypical post player with great athleticism.
