WACO, Texas — Brittney Griner provided a most appropriate goodbye in her final home game for Baylor: a trio of dunks and another double-double.
Griner had 33 points and a career-high 22 rebounds to go with her three highlight dunks, including a one-hand slam in the first half and two more in a 79-second span right before coming out of the game for good, as the defending national champions rolled past Florida State 85-47 on Tuesday night in the second round of the NCAA tournament.
With former President George W. Bush part of the crowd packed into the Ferrell Center to bid Griner farewell, the 6-foot-8 two-time All-American delivered.
