2012 NCAA Women's Tournament, Baylor Vs. Florida: Bears Knock Off Gators 76-57

Brittney Griner became the second woman to ever dunk a basketball in an NCAA Tournament game while scoring 25 points to help lead the Bears past Florida 76-57. Griner scored 25 points in the win to lead the Bears despite being held scoreless for nearly 12 minutes to start the game.

Oddysey Sims added 14 points for Baylor and Azania Stewart scored 14 points to lead Florida. The Bears haven't lost a game since the quarterfinals of last year's tournament.They advance to the Sweet 16 where they will take on Georgia Tech.

Griner becomes the first woman to dunk in an NCAA Tournament game since Candace Parker threw down two in 2006. It was Griner's first throw down of the season and the sixth of her career.
