OU WBB : Sooners Win Five Straight Heading Into Showdown With Washington

Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Oklahoma women's basketball took a shocking loss earlier in the season to North Texas, falling to the Mean Green 61-57 in Norman. Since that early loss that put the Sooners at a 1-1 record, they've won five straight games. They've outscored their opponents 363-214 since that loss with wins over BYU, Bradley, Utah, Boston College, and most recently against Arkansas Little-Rock.

They now travel to Seattle on Sunday to face off against (6-1) Washington, who the Sooners beat last year in the season opener, 90-80. That win was Sherri Coale's 400th win as the Sooners head coach. Kelsey Plum of Washington scored 40 points in that game and she returns this season as a junior for the Huskers. She's one of the top scorers in the country yet again and will provide a challenge for the Sooners defensively.

Sooners forward Kaylon Williams, who had a great game against Arkansas Little-Rock, had 23 points against Washington last year. It might turn into a shootout just like last year's game, so a big game from her will be vital if they hope to return from Washington with another win. More importantly, Oklahoma will have to limit their turnovers if they want to beat the Huskies.

The game is at 5:30 CT this Sunday, December 6th. After that, the Sooners will have just three more non-conference games before heading into conference play. That slate includes a game against #12 Texas A&M, a former rival in the Big 12 conference.
