When Crystal Leary’s foul knocked Sharane Campbell to the floor in the waning seconds of Oklahoma’s 65-64 victory over West Virginia, it wasn’t the first time she had gotten up gimpy that night.
Campbell exited the game twice after aggravating a leg injury, and occasionally grimaced while running the floor.
 
But Campbell never sat out for an extended period, finishing the game with 34 minutes played. And she was still able to drill one free throw following that foul with five seconds left, which turned out to be the game-winner.
 
TIP-INS
 
*OSU post Lindsey Keller missed her sixth consecutive game with injury.
 
*With two made 3-pointers Saturday night, Aaryn Ellenberg became OU’s all-time record-holder for career 3-pointers with 269. She passed Erin Higgins, who tallied 268 from 2003-07.
 
*Young is expected to tie Andrea Riley’s school record for career starts (131) in Sunday’s semifinal game against Baylor.
 
*The Cowgirls wore black jerseys for the fifth time this season, improving to 3-2 in the alternate look.
