    Tulsa — As her eyes reddened and her skin became flush, Katarina Stresnakova's painted-white fingernails covered her face before the tears started to flow. If there was ever an illustration of the phrase “overcome with emotion,” it was this. It was Stresnakova, 18 years old, more than 5,000 miles from her Nova Dedinka, Slovakia hometown, mere minutes after she clinched the deciding point to send Oklahoma State to its first Final Four. Stresnakova sat at a table under a tent next to Tulsa's Case Tennis Center, and she could not help but let her mind run through the tumultuous first year she has had in Stillwater.

The Baptist university hired Philadelphia law firm Pepper Hamilton in 2015 to review how the school handled those cases.
