Griner has 27 points, 10 blocks; Lady Vols shoot just 32.9 percent in loss
MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Freshman sensation Brittney Griner has grown up a lot this season -- just ask Tennessee.
• Tennesse failed to reach the Elite Eight for the second straight season after playing in seven consecutive regional finals from 2002-08. The Lady Vols missed the regional final in consecutive seasons for the first time.
• Baylor freshman Brittney Griner followed up her 14-block performance against Georgetown with 27 points, seven rebounds and 10 blocks. She has 26 blocks in three tournament games (four shy of the tournament record) and is the only player to have 10-plus blocks in multiple tournament games in her career.
• It's the first time since the women's tournament began in 1982 that the Tennessee men advanced further than the women in the NCAA tournament.
