Momentum still on Sooner women’s side



Point guard Morgan Hook was averaging 3.5 assists before the winning streak began. Since, she’s averaged 6.7. Additionally, she’s averaging 13.3 points in conference play, 2.4 more than her 10.9 season average.

Senior forward Joanna McFarland was averaging 5.6 points and 7.7 rebounds before the winning streak began, but has averaged 11.8 and 9.8 since.

Junior guard Sharane Campbell was averaging 5.9 points and 2.7 rebounds before the winning streak began, but has averaged 13 and 6.8 since.

Among the starters, only center Nicole Griffin’s numbers haven’t risen, but neither have they dropped. Before the winning streak they were 11.3 points and 4.8 rebounds. Since, they’ve been 11 and 4.8.

Despite playing so well, OU has still had to deliver in the clutch, receiving two of the best games West Virginia and TCU have played this season. They handled that, too.

Now comes Texas Tech.

“We are proud of what we’ve done. I am proud of our mentality and composure” Coale said. “We have been through a lot and to stead ourselves and play at the level we are, I am very proud of it.”

But it’s always about what’s next.

“It doesn’t mean anything,” Coale said. “If you go home and stub your toe on Saturday.”
