Brittney Griner dunks against China in FIBA World Cup (Video)

Video: Brittney Griner slams in FIBA World Cup vs China

Though just 23 years old, Brittney Griner has made a career of being the “first women’s player to dunk.” She added to that list in a win over China in the FIBA World Cup of Basketball last night – in what might be the first dunk in the tournament’s history.

Early in the game, Maya Moore drove to the basket and drew three defenders. Moore threw an over the head pass to Griner, who took one step and one dribble before throwing down the one-handed slam as the defenders froze helplessly.

Now as the first dunk in Women’s FIBA Cup Basketball play, the 6’8″ Griner
was also the first woman to dunk multiple times in a college game, the first to dunk more than once in a WNBA game, and was the the first player to dunk in a WNBA playoff game.
