Brittney Griner's unparalleled college career came to a disappointing and earlier-than-expected end without another championship. Still, her place among the all-time best is secure.

After Baylor was upset by Louisville on Sunday night, the 6-foot-8 Griner is the NCAA's second all-time leading women's scorer with 3,283 career points. She is the top shot blocker ever, shattering both the men's and women's college marks with 748. She had 18 dunks; the other six women who have dunked in a college game had 15 combined.

The Lady Bears went 27-10 her first season, and made it to the Final Four before a national semifinal loss to Connecticut. They are 106-5 since, including a 40-0 mark last season — the first in NCAA history.
