Odds aren't in our favor that we'll see this image in the coming days, but I've learned you never count out a Sherri Coale team.

The OU women begin their tourney today at 1:30 pm CT against the #11 seed James Madison in Charlottesville, Va. The Sooners face a tough challenge in JMU, both for their formidable front line as well as the expected home court advantage.  I know I have a reputation of being the "negative guy" around here, so I guess this will only add to it because I have a really bad feeling about this game today.  Now my predictions are usually wrong so hopefully this time will be no different, because nobody hopes they are wrong more than I do.  I'm just worried that the JMU size will give OU problems and we've learned from watching all year that if the refs choose to make in impact on the game, it very rarely goes in our favor.  So that said, expect OU's 6'6" freshman Nicole Griffin to get two early cheap fouls and have her role in the game be minimized.

You sound like a bitter OU fan some might say.  When it comes to college officials, you make a good point :)
