Baylor Assistant Damion McKinney Wore A Tablecloth As A Necktie To The…

I believe that's Baylor women's assistant coach Damion McKinney as spotted before last night's 80-61 victory that capped off a 40-0 season for the lady Bears.

Baylor's Brittney Griner Is The Second Woman To Ever Dunk In An NCAA…

Brittney Griner's dunk early in the second half against Florida gave top-ranked Baylor a 13-point cushion, but it was only the second time a woman had dunked in a NCAA tournament game, after Tennessee's Candace Parker did it twice against Army back in the 2006 tourney.

Chloe Rothman is a freshman point guard for the D2 Merrimack Warriors, and at a recent game, broke 40 percent of the opposing team's ankles with one ridiculous crossover.
