Women's NCAA Tournament 2012: Brittney Griner Confirms She Will Return To Baylor Next Year

On Tuesday night, the true final game of March Madness will take place, as the Baylor Bears will take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the national championship game of the 2012 NCAA Women's Tournament.

Before the championship game even takes place, the Lady Bears received some great news regarding star player Brittney Griner -- the 6-foot-8 junior will return to school for her final year.

Doug Feinberg of the Associated Press, via SI.com, reports that Griner will remain in school to complete her degree.

"I'm staying, I made a commitment," Griner said. "I'm going to stay here until my time's up, so all the speculations of me leaving early are false."

Although there is a good chance that Griner is on the radar of a good many WNBA teams, they will have to wait a while longer to seek out her services.
