It's such an obvious comparison - and a bit cheesy - but it's one that is hard to resist. "People are always telling me, 'You know, you actually remind me of her,' " said Brittany Garner, the 6-foot-3 freshman sensation for the Camden Catholic girls' basketball team. Garner's name happens to be just two letters off from that of 6-8 basketball star Brittany Griner, the best women's post player in the world, known for her two-handed slam dunks. Last year, Garner visited New York to watch Griner's Phoenix Mercury take on the New York Liberty.

Mullin said "it felt like a movie. " Grow, in his fourth-year as manager, played his first game a night earlier, hitting a foul shot before sinking a fastbreak layup.
