OU Women Move To 2-0 On the Season & Advance To Preseason WNIT Semifinals

Brendan Maloney-US PRESSWIRE

For the second consecutive game, the Oklahoma women's basketball team received a career performance that helped them get past Wichita State by a final score of 89-70 and advance to the preseason WNIT semifinals.

Friday night it was Kaylon Williams with a career best 17 points, while Sunday it was junior Sharane Campbell putting up 24 points as well as six rebounds and going a perfect 9-for-9 from the free throw line.

In addition to Campbell, the rest of Oklahoma's starting lineup turned in a balanced performance of their own.  Point guard Morgan Hook finished second on the team with 15 points, six assists and four rebounds.  Despite a cold night from the floor, OU All-American Aaryn Ellenberg managed to finish with 14 points.  Senior center Nicole Griffin finished with a double-double tallying 14 points and 10 rebounds.

The nineteen point final margin of victory was an encouraging one aside from the obvious because the Sooners once again struggled from behind the three point arc.  They only hit four of their fifteen attempts (26.7%), which will obviously need to improve as their season continues.

With the win, Oklahoma advances on to the semifinals and will face a tough test in a Gonzaga team either in or just outside of the Top 25.  The Sooners and the lady Bulldogs will square off in Norman on Thursday with a tip time of 7 p.m. (CT).
