Griner's final home game: Baylor going for 57th home win in row, NCAA round of 16 again

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 two-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.
