— The Oklahoma women's basketball team will try — again — to build some momentum heading into the postseason when it hosts Texas on Wednesday, but the Sooners could be without their leading scorer.

Senior guard Aaryn Ellenberg suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss at Oklahoma State, and her status remains uncertain moving forward. She will undergo another concussion test before Wednesday's game to determine if she can play.

“It just has to be an all-around team thing,” said sophomore guard Nicole Kornet. “Obviously with Aaryn, that's where a majority of our points come from. Once we all get involved, that's when we can be really powerful.”

Ellenberg is averaging 18 points per game this season, and became the program's second all-time leading scorer last week.

Still, OU coach Sherri Coale noted that Ellenberg has had a few less-than-spectacular games this season, and that it would be similar if she's unavailable Wednesday.

“It's no different than a night when she's going 1-for-10,” Coale said. “She's been on the floor and had those kinds of nights, and we've won. It's got to be a little bit of everybody. Everybody just has to do their job.”
