am really impressed. These seniors have taken control and are leaving it all on the floor.

"I can’t say enough how proud I am to be associated with this program. Proud to wear the crimson and cream.”

→Stephanie Luce, 2001-2003

"When you look back at the Final Four, you will remember your teammates, the locker room, the gym and the games just like any other tournament. Enjoy the atmosphere, but always be mindful of what you came to San Antonio to do — play basketball. We are all rooting for you.”

→Lauren Shoush, 2002-2005

"Take in every single second of this experience. Some day in the future, you will all be sitting around talking about this extraordinary season. Take a deep breath and enjoy the ride.”

→Stephanie Simon, 2001-2003

"The parallels between this team and our 2002 are a bit uncanny. Both of us had a bit of the underdog chip on the shoulder. Both had good senior leadership. Both had an incredible point guard. But mostly, they truly care about each other, the OU women’s basketball program and doing something special with their short time together.”

→Jamie Talbert Wyrick, 2001-2002

"The Final Four will be one of the most memorable experiences of your life. It’s a bit overwhelming, but try and take it all in.

"You guys already have so much to be proud of. Obviously, your record and the goals you’ve achieved this season are amazing, but you carry yourselves so well off the court and you’ve truly embraced what it means to be a part of OU women’s basketball.”
