It’s been seven long years since Brittney Griner dunked in women’s college basketball, but now Stanford’s Fran Belibi has dunked for the Cardinal. Here we are with a rim-rattler bringing back dunking to the women’s game.
Belibi, a 6’1 sophomore, gained notoriety in high school for jamming basketballs, but it wasn’t until December 13 when she accomplished it in a college game. Monday night, it was Belibi’s time to fly yet again, this time against UCLA. It hadn’t been done in seven years, and now Belibi has two in seven days.
GET UP, FRAN!
Are you 𝗞𝗜𝗗𝗗𝗜𝗡𝗚 me @fran_belibi1?!

I know what some of you are thinking. Yes, a woman has dunked in the SEC. Candace Parker used to get up and jam. She was the first woman to dunk in the women’s NCAA tournament and dunk twice in the same game.
Yes, expect ESPN to figure out an angle to get Fran into the College Basketball Hall of Fame as they did with Sarah Fuller and the College Football Hall of Fame.
