OU women fall to West Virginia

(Continued)

MORGANTOWN, W.V. —

Ellenberg and Hook’s shooting woes proved contagious, as OU made just 34.9 percent (22 of 63) of its shots and only 23.1 percent (5 of 22) of its 3-point attempts. West Virginia made 42.7 percent (32 of 75) from the field and hit 5 of 17 from 3-point land.

An indictment of OU's board work, no West Virginia player was any closer than seven rebounds to McFarland's total, yet the Mountaineers outrebounded the Sooners 46-42.

Bria Holmes came off the West Virginia bench to score 17 points and grab nine rebounds. Ayana Dunning added 11 points and nine rebounds.

The Sooner bench of Jasmine Hartman, Nicole Kornet and Portia Durrett, that had played so well against TCU on Wednesday also struggled, combining to play 40 minutes, score five points and grab seven rebounds.

The Sooners are back on the conference road at 7 p.m. Wednesday when they tip off inside Kansas State's Bramlage Coliseum.
