Baylor needed less than 3½ minutes to score the game's first 11 points, and led 51-20 by halftime.

As for Semrau's impression of Griner: "She is better in person. You've got to credit her development and growth."

While hard to imagine, Griner could have had more dunks.

Griner looked like she was going for another slam when she was fouled by feisty 5-foot-2 guard Yashira Delgado before getting off a shot. Right after that, the Lady Bears had three layups in a 37-second span.

There was also a pass from Pope that sailed over Griner's head when she was headed alone toward the basket with just over 11 minutes left in the game.

"Well, she could have had four (dunks), but I was stronger than I thought and I overthrew it," Pope said. "BG knew I wanted to pass it, but by the time I looked down and dribbled and looked up and threw it, she was further down than I thought."

The fans let out a huge collective moan as the ball went out of bounds.

They were cheering wildly only a few minutes later with a double dose of dunks.
