Baylor center Brittney Griner broke the all-time Big 12 career scoring record Wednesday night, leading the top-ranked Lady Bears to a 90-60 victory over Texas Tech.

It was Griner’s fourth career 40-point performance. She also grabbed 15 rebounds for her 51st career double-double.

Griner passed Oklahoma State’s Andrea Riley for the record while scoring the first four points of the game, giving her 2,837 for her career. Riley had 2,835 points from 2007-10.

In her previous game on January 26, Griner set the NCAA career record for blocked shots in an 82-65 win against Oklahoma. Griner broke the record of 663 by Louella Tomlinson of St. Mary’s in California (2007-11). The record is the most for any collegiate basketball player, male or female.

Griner, who stands 6’8″, already has the record for most dunks by a female college player with 11.
