Brittney Griner finally got that first dunk off her back in tonight’s defeat of Jacksonville State. The video shows it to be a nice solid slam, complete with the “clunk” of the rim. Love it.

Tennessee’s active roster drops to 11 players with today’s announcement that freshman Faith Dupree will sit out the season with a back problem.

The Minnesota Lynx’ Seimone Augustus, who tore her ACL last June, is roaring back.

And what a fascinating piece by ESPN, interviewing a number of NCAA coaches about the 2010 recruits they just signed. ESPN pointedly leaves out Tennessee and Connecticut, interestingly.
