Brittney Griner Open 2009 with 25 BLOCKS in one game and a triple double

It seems there is a downside to setting a national high-school girls basketball record for most blocks in a game.
"Everybody was teasing me after the game," said Brittney Griner, the record-setter, "because I had more blocks than I had points, and more blocks than the other team had points."
The newly minted Baylor signee had 21 points, 13 rebounds and 25 blocked shots as Nimitz of Houston beat Alief Hastings 69-18 last Tuesday. The 6-foot-8 Griner's 25 snuffs eclipsed the national mark of 23 by Myeisha Jones of Oakland (Calif.) Claremont against Oakland Tech in 1997. Jones went on to play at Merritt College and UNLV.
