WACO, Texas - Baylor freshman Brittney Griner will be featured twice this weekend on ESPN. ESPN's first-ever Women's Basketball GameDay, on Sat., Jan. 16, will run a short feature on the Lady Bears' 6-8 post while the network's Outside the Lines program will air a Griner feature on Sunday at 8 a.m. (CT).
GameDay's coverage begins at 9 a.m. (CT) from Storrs, Conn., in advance of the top-ranked Connecticut and third-ranked Notre Dame contest. The Griner feature is expected to run in the program's first hour.
Outside The Lines
Just weeks into her college career, Baylor freshman Brittney Griner has already dunked three times. The 6-foot-8, 19-year-old with size 17 shoes became an Internet phenomenon in high school when video of her spectacular dunking talent was put on YouTube, but Griner is much more than just a single-skilled player. Steve Delsohn examines Griner's role as the future of women's basketball. Watch "Outside the Lines" at 8 a.m. CT Sunday on ESPN.
