Oklahoma State basketball: Lindsey Keller does Cowgirls' dirty work

By Gina Mizell Published: March 1, 2013

— When Oklahoma State takes the floor against Texas on Saturday, two seniors will be honored in their final home game.

One is Toni Young, the Cowgirls' top scorer and the Big 12's leading rebounder. The other is post Lindsey Keller.

It's been an up-and-down season for Keller. She's battled numerous injuries, including one to the head that has forced her to miss OSU's last three games. And about midway through conference play, she was replaced in the starting lineup by Kendra Suttles.

Still, Keller is known for her toughness inside on both ends of the floor and as a player who will contribute in ways that don't always show up in the box score. She averages 6.6 points and 4.4 rebounds per game.

"A lot of things that she does are unheralded," Cowgirl coach Jim Littell said earlier this season. "She sets great screens. She defends the toughest post (player) every night. There isn't a lot of glamour in what she does, because she does the dirty work a lot of times."
