Baylor University Bears center Brittney Griner, who averaged 23.4 points, 9.4 rebounds and 5.2 blocked shots per game this season, was named the Associated Press women’s basketball Player of the Year.

Just a junior, the Houston native is 6’8, 208-pounds, wears a men’s size 17 or 18 shoe and has a arm span of 86″.

Griner is the first Baylor player to win the award. She received 36 votes Saturday from the 40-member national media panel that selects the weekly Top 25.

Griner’s win ended a run of three straight seasons that a Connecticut player has been player of the year, Maya Moore won the award last season.

Lady Bears head coach Kim Mulkey was selected the AP Coach of the Year.

Mulkey has guided her team to an undefeated season, and Baylor needs one more win to become the first team in NCAA history to win 40 games in a season. They’ll play Notre Dame in the women’s championship game on Tuesday night in Denver.

When Tommy Amaker was head coach at Michigan, the fans said he could not coach.

Well, in his fifth year at Harvard University, the former Duke basketball star has his team amongst college basketball’s elite.

The Crimson, at 8-0 and a win over then-ranked Florida State, joins four other teams in the recent AP top 25. Georgetown, Illinois and Creighton have been there before, but not Harvard.

Amaker guided the Boston area school to its first Ivy league title last season.

Harvard is the first Ivy League school to be ranked since the Princeton Tigers move into the top 10 in the 1997-98 season.

The only other Ivy League school to be ranked since 1970 is Pennsylvania, which last visited the polls in January 1995.

Brown University is the only school from the Ivy League not to ever make the polls.

Ohio State’s lackluster performance on offense Saturday night on national TV cost them in the weekly rankings.

The Buckeyes have fallen out of the AP college football rankings for the first time in almost seven years. That ends the nation’s longest streak of appearances in the Top 25.

With the Buckeyes streak in the Top 25 over, Alabama has the longest with 53 and Boise State is next at 49.

The Buckeyes lost at Miami on Saturday night, 24-6. They were ranked at #17 before the game and had been in the AP Top 25 for 103 straight weeks since being out on November 20, 2004.

OSU has offensive problems, can’t decide on a quarterback and are missing offensive playmakers, wide receiver DeVier Posey and running back Daniel Herron, who are suspended until the Nebraska game for their part in memorabilia and tattoo scandal.
