Oklahoma scene: OU, West Virginia picked for second-place tie in Big 12 women's basketball

Defending national champion Baylor, with 6-foot-8 post Brittney Griner back for her senior season, selected by coaches to win another conference title.
From Staff Reports Published: October 10, 2012

Oklahoma and West Virginia were selected by coaches to finish in a second-place tie for the Big 12 women's basketball season. Defending national champion Baylor was chosen No. 1. The Bears, who return the core of last season's 40-0 team, including 6-foot-8 post Brittney Griner, received nine of 10 first-place votes. Since coaches can't vote for their own team, Baylor coach Kim Mulkey gave her No. 1 choice to West Virginia.

Oklahoma State was chosen to finish seventh in the 10-team league.


The Oil Capital Racing Series has rescheduled its final regular-season sprint car points card for 3 p.m. Sunday at Brill's Motor Speedway in Meeker. The race was scheduled for last week, but it was postponed due to inclement weather. Jamie Passmore of Rose has already clinched his fourth OCRS championship in the last five seasons.
