Baylor’s Brittney Griner Throws A Mean Right Hook

griner punchMost men will tell you that they do not watch women’s sports because females just aren’t as aggressive or as physical as the males.  However, as both Elizabeth Lambert and some female high schoolers from Rhode Island showed us last year, that is not always the case.

On Wednesday night it was Brittney Griner‘s turn to get in on the action, and that turned out to be bad news for Texas Tech’s Jordan Barncastle.  Just past the midway point of the second half, Griner and Barncastle found themselves tangled up in the key.  As they jostled for position, Barncastle tossed Griner aside, enticing a rather harsh reaction from the Baylor star.

Griner was ejected for her swift right hook to the face of Barncastle, who looked a little beat up on the bench following the incident, but was able to crack a smile while discussing what had happened with teammates.  It is expected that Griner will receive additional discipline from her school and the Big 12.

Here is a look at the haymaker delivered by the 6-foot-8 giant.
