What? Brittney Griner throws a punch, is ejected from game

The Baylor freshman phenom’s star is a bit tarnished now after she punched Texas Tech sophomore Jordan Barncastle in the face tonight in the second half of their game.

Griner likely faces additional discipline from Baylor and the Big 12, and Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said she will also deal with Griner.

“There’s no place for that in sports,” Mulkey said. “It was ugly for women’s basketball. It was ugly that coaches were on the court, that benches cleared, and I will take care of that with my team.”

I’m not a Griner expert, but I never heard of her doing anything like that while in high school. What could have got under her skin like that?


Damn. She just clocked her.
