WBCA names Brittney Griner high school player of the year

No surprise, but the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association has named Brittney Griner the State Farm/WBCA High School Player of the year.

Griner is currently ranked No.1 in the country by ESPN HoopGurlz and many other publications. She holds the national record for most blocks in a single game with 25. 6-foot-8-inch center, who has been on the cover of ESPN Rise Magazine, is often seen firing up the crowd with one of her signature dunks as she averages two dunks a game. This season Griner is averaging a team best 27 points, 13 rebounds and 11 blocks and has led her team to a 24-1 ledger.

I can’t wait to see her play in college.
