Griner, McGraw are AP player and coach of the year

Brittney Griner has had no equal in her stellar career at Baylor. Now she’s part of a very select group. The 6-foot-8 senior star earned the Associated Press women’s basketball player of the year award for the second straight season Saturday. Notre Dame’s Muffet McGraw was selected coach of the year. Griner is just the third player to earn the award in consecutive years, joining Seimone Augustus of LSU and Chamique Holdsclaw of Tennessee. Connecticut’s Maya Moore won it twice in a three-year span. The three-time All-American got 37 votes from the 40-member national media panel that selects the weekly Top 25. Stanford’s Chiney Ogwumike received two votes while Notre Dame’s Skylar Diggins earned the other. – Associated Press
