Griner and No. 1 Baylor women set to visit UConn

Brittney Griner vividly remembers her last trip to Connecticut in two simple words: free throws.

As a sophomore, Griner had a miserable time at the line, missing eight foul shots - including a few key ones down the stretch - in Baylor's one-point loss.

The 6-foot-8 star can't wait for Monday night and a chance at redemption when the top-ranked Lady Bears visit No. 3 UConn in a late-season, nonconference clash that could be a preview of the NCAA championship game.

Griner got a measure of revenge last season when Baylor beat UConn 66-61 at home, rallying from an 11-point deficit in the second half behind its All-America center. Griner is looking forward to another shot at UConn, the only team she has a losing record against.
