Brittney Griner

WNBA

As Russia’s invasion of Ukraine intensifies, the former Soviet power announced on Saturday that it detained an American basketball player from Houston last month, the latest in the quickly worsening relations between Russia and the United States. Brittney Griner, a Baylor University graduate and seven-time WNBA All-Star center for the Phoenix Mercury, was arrested at the International Airport near Moscow. In February, she had just arrived from New York with what Russian officials said were vape cartridges containing hashish oil in her luggage.
