Baylor Lady Bears Superstar, Brittney Griner, Breaks Wrist

Presswire

Brittney Griner, the Baylor Lady Bears two-time All-America center broke her right wrist in a longboarding accident and will reportedly be in a cast for up to four weeks.

Griner led Baylor women's basketball team to a National Championship and a perfect 40-0 record this past season, the first time that feat has been accomplished in NCAA history. Griner averaged 23.2 points, 9.5 rebounds and 5.2 blocks per game during her junior season in Waco.

ESPN.com has more information on Griner's wrist injury:

The school released no other details about the injury on the longboard, an elongated skateboard. Mulkey was attending an awards banquet in New York City on Tuesday night when she first revealed Griner was hurt.

Griner most recently made headlines when she declined an invite to participate on Team USA in the 2012 Olympic games in London this summer.
