Baylor's supporting cast coming up big

DENVER (AP) - Baylor star Brittney Griner casts such a giant shadow that it's easy to overlook her supporting cast.

No doubt, the Bears (39-0) are on the cusp of history in big part because of Griner, the 6-foot-8 center known for her dazzling dunks and intimidating presence. But Baylor wouldn't be in the title game Tuesday night against Notre Dame without the contribution of her co-workers.

The Bears players who aren't exactly household names provided a valuable boost in a 59-47 win over Stanford on Sunday night in the NCAA semifinals.

With the Cardinal concentrating on Griner and daring anyone other than her to beat them, Terran Condrey rose to the occasion. So did Odyssey Sims, Destiny Williams and Jordan Madden.
