High School Height

It’s true that Brittney didn’t even start playing basketball until she attended Nimitz High School in Houston, Texas. She was 6 feet tall in her freshman year, but by the time she graduated, she was a 6’8 elite basketball star and every college in the state was trying to lure her to their school.
