The Oklahoma Women's Basketball team released their 2009-2010 schedule today. You can get the full schedule here. A couple of things jump out immediately. First, Oklahoma will face Pat Summit's Lady Vols in Knoxville this year. Second, the defending champion University of Connecticut basketball team will visit Norman on February 15 in what is almost assuredly going to be a sellout, given avid support of Sherri Coale's squad in recent years.
Speaking of Sherri, she lays it all out nicely in this quote:
"We're looking forward to the challenge of another strong schedule that, once again, includes games against Tennessee and Connecticut," Coale said. "Our rigorous pre-conference schedule will once again prepare us for the eternally tough conference road. Our difficulty of schedule was a key component of our successes last year -- winning a Big 12 Championship and reaching the Final Four."
You may want to book those tickets for the UConn game early. No word on when they'd go on sale.
