Baylor’s 6-foot-8 All-American Brittney Griner threw down this dunk as the Lady Bears moved into the NCAA regional finals for the third straight year with an 83-68 victory over Georgia Tech on Saturday.

Griner, who finished with 35 points, 10 rebounds and six blocks, took a pass from Brooklyn Pope and dunked with 6:29 left in the game. You could see her swinging briefly on the rim.

“I wanted to get one in this game,” said Griner. "Brooklyn got me the ball and I just went up and slammed it.”

This is the second straight game where Griner dunked and the seventh slam of her college career.

She’s now tied with former Tennessee star Candace Parker, who held the record for two dunks in NCAA tournament play.

  • This looks like the Na'vi in Avatar playing the humans. What is so great about someone 6'8" dunking a ball? Just hire the tallest people to drop the ball into the goal if you get an adrenalin rush over that part of the game instead of appreciating real shooting skills. Shooting is a skill while dunking is just a factor of height.
  • Yeah, but you're a guy. Obviously a girl couldn't be expected to have a vertical over 16 inches.
  • lol..Yeah right. You might have been able to touch the rim with your finger tips. That's about it.
  • I agree if you're 6'8 then dunking is not news worthy. Honestly, I don't care what most of these atheletes do, because the game has not evolved with the times. The 10ft rim was designed for players who averaged 5'6 to 5'7 and the tallest player was 6'0 to 6'1. Today, the rim needs to be above 11ft, if not 12ft, to fit with the evolution of the player. I have a better idea, how about these atheletes cure cancer, HIV and then I'd be impressed!!!
  • Wow, who'd a thunk that a Sleestak could dunk? She barely got off the ground!
  • has anyone hear this "woman" talk? "Her" voice just sound too deep and masculine, she can even pass for a guy if she cut off those awful dreadlocks..
    i dunno, someone needs to give her a gender test of some sort...
  • yeah, shes got a bigger dick than i do.
  • your kidding right?? she's 6 8!!! it should be new's if she couldn't dunk!! who give's a crap about women's basketball anyway!!
  • Wow! Listen to all these jealous guys meowing. Bet none of you are more than 5'10". Being 6'8", for a female, is a drawback and you should admire her for making the best of what nature forced on her. Quit yer whining, little boys.......
