Brittney Griner receives controversial invite


The controversy with Baylor University’s women’s basketball player Brittney Griner has sparked again.

The 6-foot-8 post-player ended her season with a disappointing loss to the Louisville Cardinals in the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament.

While her collegiate career is over, her basketball career has just started. Griner’s future is looking bright. She has high chances of playing in the WNBA. However, some professional coaches seem to have other ideas for the Big 12 Player of the Year.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said he would consider drafting Griner in the second round of the male-dominated NBA draft. Cuban also said he would not have a problem inviting her to try out for the Mavericks’ summer league team if she does not get drafted.

Reporter Jason Brown shares his thoughts on the invitation. Check out the full story in Monday’s online edition.
