New, 3 comments

Oklahoma's women's basketball team has been picked to win the conference again by the coaches. The Lady Sooners were the first women's basketball team to go undefeated in the Big 12.  

Sophomore Center Courtney Paris has been selected as the Preseason Player of the Year.

3.    Texas    101
4.    Baylor    94
5.    Iowa State    68
6.    Nebraska    66
7.    Kansas State    57
7.    Texas Tech    57
9.    Missouri    43
10.    Kansas    36
11.    Colorado    26
12.    Oklahoma State    16

On the men's side the Sooners were picked to finish 9th by the coaches. We don't really know what to expect from the 06-07 Sooners here's to hoping that their play with a major chip on their shoulders allowing them to over achieve. I think finishing at least 6th in the conference would put the Sooners in the NCAA Tournament.
