BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) - Brittney Griner became the second woman to dunk in an NCAA tournament game Tuesday night, slamming one down with her right hand early in the second half of top-seeded Baylor's 76-57 win over ninth-seeded Florida.

Griner went nearly 12 minutes without scoring at the beginning of the game but finished with 25 points, including the night's biggest highlight.

Odyssey Sims added 14 points for Baylor (36-0). Azania Stewart led Florida (20-13) with 14.  Candace Parker of Tennessee dunked in an NCAA tournament game in 2006 against Army. Griner's dunk was her first of the season and sixth of her career. Parker holds the career record with seven.
