ST. LOUIS, Mo. - The future stars of tomorrow shined in Saint Louis in the 2009 Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) High School All-America Game presented by Nike Saturday, as the Blue Team held off a late surge by the White Team to take the title, 79-77.

State Farm/WBCA High School Player of the Year and Baylor signee Brittney Griner earned Blue Team MVP honors thanks to her 20 points (9-of-15), nine rebounds, eight blocks and three steals.

"This's game was a big honor for me to be able to play in," said the 6-8 Griner. "You don't get all the top 20 girls in the same gym at the same time. I wanted to go out and take advantage of playing with all these talented girls."

Griner's future Baylor teammate, Mariah Chandler, tallied nine points for the Blue team while hauling down five rebounds. Chandler, a 6-2 forward out of Atlanta, Ga., played high school ball at Southwestern Atlanta Christian.

"The fact that we had two of our signees selected to play in the WBCA All-Star game speaks volumes about our program and our recruiting efforts. Both student-athletes played extremely well, it gives fans a glimpse of what's to come at Baylor," said head coach Kim Mulkey.
