Brittney Griner and Baylor left no doubt they're head and shoulders above any team in the country. In fact, they're perfect.
Griner had 26 points, 13 rebounds and five blocks to lead Baylor to a dominating 80-61 victory over Notre Dame in the NCAA women's basketball championship on Tuesday night, capping a 40-0 season for the Lady Bears."Looking back when we get older, I'm always going to remember this moment, always going to remember confetti falling and being here with my team," Griner said as she and her teammates hugged and celebrated.
They became the seventh women's team to run through a season unbeaten and the first in NCAA history to win 40 games. It was the second national championship for Baylor, which also won a title in 2005.
Baylor did it in a nearly wire-to-wire victory, finishing with a flourish in a season when anything less than bringing a title back to Waco would have been a huge disappointment.
No other NCAA basketball team ever went 40-0. That is quite impressive. Too bad not many people actually wached the game or even knew it was on TV, but women's basketball has come a long way in the past several years and at times, is more exciting and physical than men's basketball.
