As the Baylor Lady Bears continue to chase a perfect season, the team's leader, center Brittney Griner, was announced to be a unanimous selection to the Associated Press' All-American team, according to an Associated Press report on ESPN Dallas. Griner is on the team along with Stanford's Nnemkadi Ogwumike, Notre Dame's Skylar Diggins, Delaware's Elane Delle Donne and Maryland's Alyssa Thomas.
Of the honor and about the other women that were named to the team, Griner said:
"That would be a very strong team," Griner said. "I feel sorry for anyone who would have to play us."
If Griner and the Bears win the next two games, winning the championship, they would be the first NCAA history to finish a season with a 40-0 record. Griner has enjoyed the ride so far this season and she's hopeful that the season will end the right way for her and her team.
"I would never have thought it would be like this. It's amazing," Griner said. "Sometimes you forget what you've done. You don't sit back and enjoy it as you're so focused on a goal. It definitely has been a great year so far. I hope it finishes the right way, too."
