Brittney Griner Punch VIDEO…Baylor Freshman Suspended 2 Games…Griner Dunk VIDEO…

Baylor freshman Brittney Griner suspended 2 games for punch
From staff and wire reports

Baylor freshman basketball star Brittney Griner will miss the next two games after her ejection for throwing a punch Wednesday night in a game at Texas Tech.

NCAA rules say the center, who gained renown for her dunks, automatically was suspended for one game because she was called for a flagrant foul and ejected by game officials. The No. 15 Bears’ regular-season finale is Sunday against No. 22 Texas.

Coach Kim Mulkey announced in a statement Thursday evening that Griner would be suspended for one more game, which will be in the Big 12 tournament March 11 or 12 depending on Baylor’s seeding.

In a statement, Big 12 Commissioner Dan Beebe said he accepted Mulkey’s decision, calling it appropriate based on the severity of the act.

Griner was tossed midway through the second half Wednesday when she delivered a blow to the face of the Lady Raiders’ Jordan Barncastle.

Griner, 6-8, and Barncastle, 6-2, were battling for position near the lane just before Barncastle spun Griner and sent her lunging toward the baseline.

Barncastle was called for a foul. Griner straightened up and took two steps toward Barncastle before throwing a roundhouse right.

Griner apologized to Barncastle, the Texas Tech team, her own teammates and coaches and “the game of women’s basketball” via a statement issued by the school.

“I let my emotions get the best of me, and I am deeply sorry,” her statement said. “I will grow from this, and I am dedicated to setting an example to others of how to learn from personal mistakes.”

Said Mulkey: “I don’t believe this incident should define Brittney Griner — either as a person or a player. … Her actions were very uncharacteristic of her.”

Griner leads the Bears (22-7, 9-6 Big 12) in scoring (19.0-point average), rebounding (8.7) and blocked shots (6.0).

Barncastle has a broken nose, Texas Tech’s Tammi Hoffman said Thursday in a news release. The sophomore’s status will be evaluated daily.
