this girl can dunk

Brittney Griner can dunk.

Not one of those just-above-the-rim throw-downs that have long been accepted as the best a woman can do in games of the past. When the 6-foot-8 high school senior dunks, it can be a rim-rattling, backboard shaking, two-handed slam.

Simply put, she dunks like a guy.

"It was overwhelming, obviously, the first time I did it and I just wanted to do it more and more," she said.

Add this athleticism to her speed, blocking and rebounding prowess and it's easy to see how Griner has become more than simply a top recruit, but someone who might be able to transform the women's game.

Griner, who signed with Baylor, is the top player in the country according to and ESPN's HoopGurlz.

"I've been doing this a long time ... but I've never seen anything like Brittney Griner," Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said.
