Big 12 women's tournament will feature OSU-Iowa State, OU-Texas on Saturday

All-session and single-session tickets remain available for the tournament, which begins with two games Friday evening. This will be the third time Oklahoma City has hosted the Big 12 women’s basketball tournament, but the first time that will be played at the Chesapeake Arena.

Tim Brassfield stopped worrying about things he can’t control a long time ago, which is why the Oklahoma City All Sports Association’s executive director didn’t lose any sleep over the Oklahoma State women’s Monday night loss to Texas.

Had the Cowgirls won, they would have met Oklahoma on Saturday night in the Big 12 women’s basketball tournament quarterfinals inside Chesapeake Energy Arena. Instead, OSU will open tournament play at 11 a.m. Saturday against Iowa State, and the Sooners will face the Longhorns at 8:30 p.m.

“We have them on opposite ends of the bracket now,” Brassfield said of the Bedlam rivals. “Who knows? Maybe they’ll get to play. And OU-Texas isn’t bad for a rivalry game and a nightcap.”

All-session and single-session tickets remain available for the tournament, which begins with two games Friday evening.

All-session tickets cost $110 or $85, and single-session tickets — good for two games each — are priced at $25 and $20.

“I think Oklahoma City has proven itself to be a consistent event supporter when it comes to women’s collegiate athletics,” Brassfield said. “We expect a good turnout.”
