Only seven women have ever dunked in an official NCAA game. The first was Georgeann Wells, a West Virginia Mountaineer. Her first dunk was on Dec. 21, 1984, against Charleston, and her second was eight days later against Xavier.
Six others have dunked since:
Charlotte Smith (North Carolina)
Michelle Snow (Tennessee) [thrice]
Sancho Lyttle (Houston)
Candace Parker (Tennessee) [seven times]
Sylvia Fowles (Louisiana State)
Brittney Griner (Baylor) [thrice]
