Brittney Griner Scores 50 Points In Last Regular Season College Game
It was close, but the Kansas State Lady Wildcats eventually pulled away, knocking off Brittney Griner, 68-50, Monday night.
Unfortunately for those Wildcats, Griner’s teammates pitched in another 40, capping off the superstar’s epic night with a 90-68 win for Baylor in Waco, Texas.
Her box score verged on comedic. In 38 minutes, the 6’8″ senior went 21-of-28 from the field and 8-of-10 from the line en route to 50 points. She also chipped in six rebounds, two assists and two blocks, as top-ranked Baylor finished the regular season at 29-1 overall and 18-0 in the Big 12, their second consecutive undefeated conference title.
The 50-point effort in Griner’s final collegiate regular-season game is a storybook ending for a truly marvelous career.
“It means everything to just go out with a bang like that,” Griner said. “Got a dunk finally at home, scored 50. I mean there’s not a better way to go out.”
Last season, Griner averaged 23.2 points, 9.5 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 5.2 blocks to lead the Bears to a national championship. Before Monday night’s outing, she was averaging another 22.3 points (fourth in the nation), 9.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 4.1 blocks (second in the nation).
She’s a beast, clap for her.
