Sooners set tone with defense against UCO

NORMAN —

The final score, 96-37, wasn’t particularly important, though Sooner coach Sherri Coale surely wished her reserves would not have appeared so challenged against a very outmatched group from Central Oklahoma.

Instead, it was about the first half, when Oklahoma built a 51-8 lead, holding the Bronchos scoreless for the majority of the first 20 minutes until Jill Bryan converted a pair of free throws only seconds before intermission.

Who plays defense, that much defense, in a meaningless exhibition game? Apparently, the Sooner women.
