Women's basketball: Sooners fall behind early, pick it up to defeat TCU
Jeremy Dickie, The Oklahoma Daily
It took awhile for the Sooners to hit their groove in Lloyd Noble Center tonight. After falling to an early 11-0 deficit, the team picked it up and led 30-27 at halftime. Early in the second half, junior Aaryn Ellenberg went down with an ankle injury, but the Sooners didn’t let that stop them, as OU defeated TCU, 74-53.
Key stat: 46. The Sooners shot 46 percent from behind the arc. If that number isn’t staggering enough, it's one percentage point higher than what the team shot from the field.
Key player: Sophomore Sharane Campbell finished tonight with 23 points, five rebounds, one steal and a block. In the absence of Ellenberg, Campbell stepped up in a big way.
What it means: The Sooners bounce back and improve to 16-4 overall and 6-2 in the Big 12. TCU remains winless in Big 12 play.
What’s next: OU hits the road to take on West Virginia at noon Sunday in Morgantown.
