#SlamDunkX2: Tweet from Brittney Griner account at half: 'Need two more dunks on home court'

Call it a pair of tweet dunks for Brittney Griner.

Griner became the first woman with three dunks in a game in Baylor's 85-47 victory over Florida State in the NCAA tournament Tuesday night. She had one before halftime, when the 6-foot-8 star apparently tweeted that she wanted two more in her last home game for the Lady Bears.

"Need two more dunks on home court for the best crowd ever!" read a tweet posted from Griner's account, (at)Brittney4Griner. The timeline would match when Baylor was at halftime.

Griner then had two more dunks in a 79-second span soon before she came out of the game for good.

In another post Wednesday morning, Griner wrote she was sleepy and "in class like zombie!!!" and attached a photo to prove it.
