Oklahoma basketball: Three things to watch for in the OU women's game against Iowa State

Here are three things to watch as the Sooners try to improve to 2-0 in Big 12 play against the unbeaten Cyclones.
by Jason Kersey Published: January 4, 2014

Forward Joanna McFarland — a senior last season and the team's leading rebounder and best inside presence — fouled out in all three games against Iowa State. In the Cyclones' 72-68 win last February in Norman, four Oklahoma players fouled out.

Through 12 games this season, Iowa State opponents are averaging nearly 21 fouls per game.

Griffin has managed to stay out of foul trouble for much of this season so far, but Williams — who comes off the bench as one of the team's most aggressive players — has fouled out twice.

Hook vs. Moody

This game also features a matchup between two of the Big 12's better point guards — Iowa State junior Nikki Moody and Oklahoma senior Morgan Hook.

Hook averages 6.1 assists per game, and Moody averages 5.8 so far this season.

Both players are critical to their team's success, and the winner of this individual matchup could determine whether the Sooners or Cyclones remaining unbeaten in Big 12 play.
