Griner set for final home game for Baylor in NCAA

WACO, Texas (AP) - Brittney Griner has played in only one loss at home during her four seasons at Baylor. Junior point guard Odyssey Sims is still undefeated.

Griner, the 6-foot-8 2-time All-American, plays her final home game Tuesday night in the second round of the NCAA tournament against Florida State (23-9). The defending national champion Lady Bears (33-1) have won a nation's-best 56 in a row at home.

Baylor is 71-2 at home since the senior trio of Griner, Jordan Madden and Kimetria Hayden got there as freshmen together. Griner didn't play in the last home loss, to Texas in their regular-season home finale as freshmen.

The Lady Bears have won every home game the last three seasons - since Sims arrived and when transfers Destiny Williams and Brooklyn Pope started playing.
