Brittney Griner Announces Engagement On Social Media

Via PageSix:

Women’s basketball stars Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson are engaged.
Griner proposed to Johnson and both posted it on social media, with Griner showing a photo of her on one knee with a ring in her hand in front of Johnson on her Instagram account. Griner plays for the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury and Johnson for the Tulsa Shock.

Johnson also had a photo on her Instagram account of Griner lying in bed with an engagement ring resting on her shoulder.

Griner has embraced her role as a prominent gay athlete since finishing a record-breaking career at Baylor. She came out last year and wrote a candid memoir, “In My Skin,” that was critical of college coach Kim Mulkey.

The 6-foot-8 center, drafted first overall by Phoenix last year, has helped lead the Mercury to a WNBA-best 27-5 record. She is averaging 15.4 points, 7.9 rebounds and 3.9 blocks.
Johnson is averaging 15.0 points and 9.5 rebounds in her third season with Tulsa. The 6-foot-3 forward played at Tennessee.

Awww, how sweet! The officiant will have to use a step-stool to marry these two extra-tall lovers! Congratulations.
