Sooners’ poor shooting performance came at worst possible time



Hartman goes long: With Morgan Hook out with concussion-like symptoms after taking a knee to the head 9 minutes into the game, reserve senior guard Jasmine Hartman logged 36 minutes of court time. She finished 1 for 3 from the field, grabbed eight rebounds and dished two assists against three turnovers. Her low assist total could be attributed to OU’s poor shooting and three turnovers is plenty reasonable against Tennessee’s pressure.

“I thought she handled herself really well,” OU coach Sherri Coale said. “I was really proud of her.”

Layups: OU’s all-time record in the NCAA tournament is 30-16. The Sooners are 3-7 in the regional semifinal round, having reached the Final Four after each of those three victories … OU’s 59 points were a season low and its fewest points since falling 73-55 to Connecticut Feb. 13 2012 … Aaryn Ellenberg closed the season with a program record 115 made 3-pointers, pushing her career program-record mark to 284 … Hartman played in her record 143rd and final game with the program … With 14 points and 16 rebounds, Joanna McFarland registered her 13th double-double of the season; her 910 career rebounds rank sixth in program history.
