OU Women's Basketball | Sooners Drop One On The Road In Lawrence

SoonerSports.com

After falling to Kansas 81-71 on Sunday afternoon, the Sooners have lost consecutive games for the first time this season. In one of their worst defensive performances on the season, Oklahoma allowed Kansas way too many easy baskets and continually looked lost which lead to repeated wide open opportunities for the Jayhawks. Kansas had four of their five starters in double digits, accounting for 72 of their 81 points.

As they've done in many a game this year, Oklahoma started the game on a horribly cold shooting performance which allowed Kansas to take a lead they would never relinquish. Aaryn Ellenberg had an uncharacteristically poor shooting performance finishing as the team's leading scorer with 21 points, but needing 26 attempts to reach that mark.

Returning to her home state, Joanna McFarland continued her stellar play putting up yet another double-double finishing with 16 points and 15 rebounds.

Sharane Campbell had been playing as well as any one in the league in recent weeks, but was not effective in this one. She finished with just six points and for an Oklahoma team that doesn't have a ton of scoring options, when one of them goes cold it can have a big effect.

Nicole Griffin had a solid day on the offensive end (17 points on 8-12 shooting and nine rebounds), but the defensive end was another story entirely. With her slight frame, Griffin was pushed around the entire game by Kansas' Carolyn Davis who would finish with a game high 24 points (and 10 rebounds).

With the loss, Oklahoma falls to 18-7 on the season and 8-5 in Big 12 play. The Sooners return to action this Wednesday with a home contest against Kansas State.
