Griffin gets best of Bullock (Basketball)

December 5, 2009

It was billed as a Saturday showdown between the University of Nebraska and the University of Miami, two 7-0 women’s teams from BCS conferences.

But in Alaska that meant Kelsey Griffin vs. Sylvia Bullock.

Kelsey Griffin

Chalk this one up to the current Cornhuskers and former Chugiak High Mustangs star.

Griffin, a 6-foot-2 senior All-American candidate from Eagle River, delivered 13 points and 9 rebounds to key Nebraska’s 76-71 win in Coral Gables, Fla.

Griffin, a two-time All-Big 12 selection, sank 6 of 13 field goals and 1 of 2 free throws. She also had 2 steals and a blocked shot to offset 5 turnovers in 24 minutes.

Sylvia Bullock

Bullock, a 6-foot-2 sophomore starter from Anchorage, grabbed 6 rebounds and scored 2 points in just 15 minutes.

The former all-state forward from Service and Sough High battled foul trouble, limiting her playing time. Two weeks ago she set the school record with 8 blocked shots in a win against the University of Houston.

You would think today’s win would vault unbeaten Nebraska into the top-25 NCAA rankings.
