True Hoops

Yes the Kentucky Wildcats won their 8th national championship in school history on Monday night. But at only 38-2, can you really say they are the best college basketball team in the country? How about the Baylor Lady Bears, who just won their second national championship in school history and finished the season a perfect 40-0. Mind you, this is the first team in NCAA history to record 40 wins.

Oh, you still think Anthony Davis was the best player in college hoops this year? Yes, it truly is amazing how he can dominate a game without scoring much. He finished the championship game with only 6 points on 1-10 shooting but still had 16 rebounds to go along with 6 blocks, 5 assists, and 3 steals. He will surely be the number one pick in this year's NBA draft. But still, no way is he more dominant than Brittney Griner, who finished her respective championship game recording 26 points on 11-16 shooting to go along with 13 rebounds and 5 blocks in the championship. Even more impressive, with only a six point lead at halftime, Griner scored 17 points on 8-9 shooting in the second half to blow the game open in route to a 19 point victory. Forget Davis, Griner has a larger grip on the game than LeBron and greater reach over opponents than Andrew Bynum! She will surely be the number one pick in the WNBA draft - the 2013 draft that is. She still has her senior year in college to complete.

For sure Griner is a baller and makes everyone on her side better, even if they don't play basketball. For example, reigning Heisman trophy winner Robert Griffin III recently turned down a request by the Indianapolis Colts for a private workout. What was he doing instead???
Cutting down the net in NOLA:

Who needs to prep for the team with the number one pick in the NFL draft when you can be doing that? Although, perhaps RGIII is getting a little ahead of himself. He recently challenged Griner to a slam dunk contest. Here's a little bit of advice: stick to throwing footballs. Griner throws it down with authority:

Bottom line: pound for pound Griner and the Lady Bears are the best college team in the country.

  1. RG3 is a legit athlete. I've never seen him jump, but by running a 4.1 40, Im presuming he can probably rock the rim a bit better than Griner, who may be as dominant a force in womens basketball as Cheryl Miller once was. And why workout for the Colts when you know they aren't going to draft you, and their owner is a Twitter happy baffoon???
