WBB freshman guard Brittany Atkins to redshirt, other news and nuggets
As the No. 12 Oklahoma State Cowgirls (14-2, 3-2 Big 12) prepare to face Kansas State in Manhattan Wednesday night, here are some notes and nuggets left over from my notebook.
FRESHMAN GUARD ATKINS TO REDSHIRT
OSU coach Jim Littell said last week that he plans to redshirt freshman guard Brittany Atkins.
Atkins had her knee scoped before the season and was originally expected to miss about a month. She has returned to practice, but Littell estimated she’s only about 60 percent healthy.
“By the time she got to 100 percent, we’d be 20 or 22 games in,” Littell said. “Why waste it? It’s not right for the kid to do that to her.”
The Cowgirls don’t have a ton of depth on the perimeter, with only three healthy guards in Tiffany Bias, Brittney Martin and Kamri Anderson. But Bias averages 33.9 minutes per game, and forwards Liz Donohoe and Morgan Toben play heavily on the wing.
