WACO, Texas -- Baylor freshman Brittney Griner became the seventh woman to dunk in a college basketball game when she slammed one down against Jacksonville State on Tuesday night.
The 6-foot-8 Griner took a pass from Kelli Griffin and dunked with her right hand. Griner, who missed a dunk attempt in each of her previous two games, had seven points in the first 5 minutes against Jacksonville State.
She became the first collegiate female to dunk since Tennessee's Candace Parker on Feb. 3, 2008, against Kentucky. Parker had seven dunks in her college career.
