Women's Final Four 2012: Brittney Griner Indicates She'll Return To Baylor

Despite being by far the most dominant player in the collegiate game and just leading her school to an undefeated 40-0 season and a national title, Brittney Griner doesn't seem to have plans on moving to the WNBA just yet. Griner, who is eligible to go pro this year as she turns 22, indicated she wasn't thinking about leaving Baylor when she spoke to the media following the national title win Tuesday night:

"Money isn't everything; money doesn't really buy happiness," she said. "I made a commitment and I gave my word. These are your best years, in college, and I'm trying to have my full experience. It was never tempting. I never really had to think or debate about it."

"Whatever Coach says, that's what I'll do," Griner said. "She's led me in the right direction at Baylor. I have to get louder on court and in practice. I'm going to do better on offensive boards. But right at the moment, I'm not thinking about next year. All I know is I'm going to be right here at Baylor."

Griner helped the Lady Bears take the national title against Notre Dame with 26 points, 13 rebounds and five blocks.
