Blake Griffin won’t be honored: OU's Senior Day is for seniors

Tonight brings us the last tango for the Paris twins.

Courtney and Ashley will be honored, along with fellow senior Carolyn Winchester, inside the Lloyd Noble Center.

After the Sooners’ game against Texas Tech, members of the OU women’s team will cut down the nets, celebrate their sixth Big 12 regular-season championship and then honor their seniors.

Sooners coach Sherri Coale recognizes her senior classes after their final home game, not before it.

Wise move, considering all the tears that flow.

"No way could you do it beforehand and then expect anybody to go out and play a game,” Coale said. "Not for a women’s game. No way.”

Oklahoma State seniors Byron Eaton, Terrel Harris and Anthony Brown were honored last night inside Gallagher-Iba Arena.

Seniors throughout the country will be honored this week, so where does that leave OU sophomore Blake Griffin?

Barring an announcement of greater proportions than Sam Bradford, Saturday’s Bedlam contest figures to be Griffin’s final game inside Lloyd Noble.
