BOWLING GREEN, Ohio -- Brittney Griner has become the second woman to dunk in an NCAA tournament game, throwing one down with her right hand early in the second half of Baylor's game against Florida on Tuesday night.

Griner's dunk came off a pass from Kimetria Hayden after the Baylor guard came up with an offensive rebound near the basket. Candace Parker of Tennessee dunked twice in an NCAA tournament game in 2006 against Army.

It was Griner's first dunk of the season and sixth of her career. She's one short of Parker's career record.
