It was a big week for Baylor's Brittney Griner, who was the no. 1 pick in Monday's WNBA draft. She also came out publicly, telling SI.com in an interview on Wednesday that being true to herself was more important than her all-star status. "If I can show that I'm out and I'm fine and everything's OK, then hopefully the younger generation will definitely feel the same way." (Photo: AP Photo/Jessica Hill)
