Britney Griner Smashes NCAA Women’s Block Record!
“Definitely happy I got that. Now I’m going to try to set it higher,” the 6-foot-8 Griner said. “Blocked shots keep the other team from scoring, that’s just how I look at it. Blocked shots kind of remind me when I played volleyball, I used to love to spike. … That’s why I like (blocks) the most.”
With eight in the game, Griner has 665 career blocks, two more than Louella Tomlinson had for St. Mary’s in California (2007-11).
“As good as she is on the offensive end, where she really changes games is on the defensive end,” Oklahoma coach Sherri Coale said. “She obviously has the wingspan and the athleticism, but she also has that ornate sense that I think all great shot blockers have knowing when to go get it.” – espn
