Oklahoma finished with its lowest point total of the season in Sunday's 74-59 regional semifinal loss to Tennessee.

It was the first time since Feb. 13, 2012 that Oklahoma's women failed to score 60 points. On that day, OU lost 73-55 to Connecticut.

COALE PRAISES SENIORS

Oklahoma coach Sherri Coale said on every door entering the team's locker room, the phrase, “Leave your story better than you found it,” is printed.

“It's what we challenge our kids to do, every single class that comes through,” Coale said, adding that her four 2012-13 seniors — Lyndsey Cloman, Whitney Hand, Jasmine Hartman and Joanna McFarland, did just that.

Hand and Cloman were injured for most of the season, but remained strong emotional leaders.

“They're two guys that, they don't get to play any more, they show up every day, they stay invested,” Coale said. “That is so hard. The easiest thing to do is just seal up, maybe be there, but not really be there. Those two guys were all in every day.”
