Entering her sophomore year, after only 41 games, Brittney Griner became Baylor’s blocks leader tonight. Griner put up 27 points and had three blocks in the Bears’ win over Texas Southern. The previous record was 249 blocks, which took her predecessor over twice as long to achieve. Baylor Coach Kim Mulkey said Griner “has a knack for timing it just right” to get blocks.
