Griner ready for Mercury's tempo

PHOENIX (AP) - Brittney Griner couldn't stop smiling at her introductory news conference with the Phoenix Mercury.

It's hard to blame her.

1 of the most dominating players in the history of women's college basketball, Griner was selected by the Mercury with the No. 1 overall pick in Monday's WNBA draft.

The 6-foot-8 center brings with her a cache of talents, including scoring, rebounding, shot blocking and, most famously, dunking with ease.

Griner comes to the desert with the benefit of not having to carry a team as the No. 1 pick, joining a team that includes former league MVP Diana Taurasi and All-Stars Penny Taylor and Candice Dupree.
