However tempting, don’t stick a fork in the Sooner women just yet. Though it may be clear exactly how, the Sooners knocked off Red River rival Texas 64-63 Wednesday night inside Lloyd Noble Center.
Considered a must win if OU is to reach the NCAA tournament on the strength of its regular season, the Sooners made it happen without the services of leading scorer Aaryn Ellenberg for the entire 40 minutes, and without the services of post Kaylon Williams for the final 5:46.
Ellenberg continues to recover from a concussion suffered against Oklahoma State and Williams a right-knee injury, of the which the severity is unclear.
What that did was make room for point guard Morgan Hook to play the hero.
