"Our biggest girl is 6'2", so no one tried to simulate Brittney. I think that would have been detrimental. You wanted to make it seem attainable that you could guard her, that it wasn't some crazy feat."
GRINER: 31 POINTS, 10 REBOUNDS, 5 BLOCKS IN A 109--59 WIN
GARY BLAIR TEXAS A&M COACH
"I have a 6'10" practice player named David Benac. He's not as good as Brittney and I tell him that, and I only use him for Baylor. While we don't allow him to block shots, when he extends his hands, he is over eight feet. We have all gotten bigger in the Big 12 because of Griner—to be able to compete."
GRINER: 57 POINTS, 21 REBOUNDS, 13 BLOCKS IN THREE WINS (71--48, 69--62 AND 73--50)
