“It's been a bit of a crazy schedule in terms of the way games fall; whether it be home games, road games, quality opponents or whatever,” Coale said. “Even the distance we've had between games, we've had a couple of Thursday to Sunday and that feels funny or Saturday to Monday, which we're coming up on again.”
The Sooners were the Big 12 preseason favorite, but have struggled to build any momentum at all from game to game.
And for Oklahoma to beat Kansas, the Sooners will likely have to do it without senior guard Aaryn Ellenberg — who missed the last game with a concussion and is questionable Saturday — and sophomore forward Kaylon Williams, who suffered a knee injury against Texas.
Asked what the team learned about itself against Texas, junior guard Sharane Campbell said, “That we can fight. For a couple of days we knew that weren't going to have Aaryn and she is our leading scorer, and then we lost (Williams) and we got together and were like, we're going to do this, the want-to that we have to push through any game that comes our way and just knowing that we can stay together.”
