Bullock makes history at Miami (Basketball)

Sylvia Bullock

Standing 6-foot-2, Sylvia Bullock isn’t as tall as a traditional shot blocker.

But she makes up for it with awesome athleticism.

Bullock, of South High fame, showed off her crazy ups last night in Coral Gables when she set a University of Miami record with eight blocked shots in a 68-54 win over Houston.

Even better, the victory kept the ‘U’ unbeaten at 5-0, the team’s best start in six seasons.

It’s a good thing Bullock went all Manute Bol, because she struggled offensively (2-7 FGs, 5 points) and managed to grab only four rebounds in 31 minutes.

The starting sophomore had six blocked shots in her previous four games, but against Houston she swatted five shots in the opening 8½ minutes.

Bullock is no stranger to big games. In high school, she once grabbed an astounding 27 rebounds in one game.
