Three things to know
Oklahoma dropped from the AP top-25 rankings after last week, when the Sooners lost consecutive games for the first time this season.
Kansas State lost 80-45 at Oklahoma State in its last outing.
In the season's first meeting Feb. 6 in Manhattan, Kan., Oklahoma won 74-68. OU has won the series' last 11 games.
“I do think (the Iowa State game) lingered when we were missing almost every shot we took at Kansas at the beginning,” said junior guard Morgan Hook. “We were all like, ‘Here we go again.'
“We have to overcome that, and come back out swinging again and again, no matter how many times we got knocked down.”
Coale said players sometimes forget a few bad early possessions isn't necessarily an indicator of how the game will ultimately play out, and that it's her responsibility to remind players of that.
“Finding a way to lessen the perceived significance of every possession will be really important (Wednesday) night,” Coale said.
“The second you allow yourself to ‘woe is me,' is the second the fatigue sets in. I felt like that's what we played like all day (Sunday), like we were trying to get that monkey off our back. Sort of a malaise that's hanging around.”
