Who is the best college basketball player? Some would say Anthony Davis. Others would say it is Thomas Robinson. I’m going to take it to a whole different direction. This person plays on the only undefeated team still playing. That would be Baylor’s Superstar center Brittney Griner.
Before you guys start forming an opinion, let me hit you with some facts. I’m going to compare her stats with the First Team All-American Men’s selections.
Thomas Robinson 17.9 ppg 11.8 rpg 1.9 apg
Anthony Davis 14.3 ppg 10.1 rpg 4.6 bpg
Draymond Green 16.1 ppg 10.4 rpg 3.6 apg
Jared Sullinger 17.6 ppg 9.3 rpg 1.2 apg
Doug McDermott 23.2 ppg 8.2 rpg 1.1 apg
Brittney Griner 23.4 PPG 9.4 RPG 5.2 BPG
This player is in a league of her own. When have you seen a player dominate the game like she has this year? Her team, as of today, is 38-0. That is what I call LEADING BY EXAMPLE. She is a Naismith Player of the Year finalist and didn’t take the easy way by going to Tennessee or Connecticut. She put the Baylor Women’s Team on the map and started her own legacy. With the numbers she puts up, the NBA needs to start looking at her. She can’t be any worse than the players picked from overseas that never come over here. Everyone likes to talk about the men playing, but we really need to start appreciating this great player while she is still playing. Just think, how often do you get to see a collegiate woman throw down a two hand dunk on another player.
