But Donohoe, the reigning Big 12 Freshman of the Year, can score in a variety of ways.

She can nail the 3-pointer from the left wing in transition and come off screens to sink the open jumper. She can snag the rebound and put the ball back in the bucket.

“(Littell) talks to me about that a lot,” Donohoe said. “But I don't really like shooting every time …”

Her voice trails off at the end of the sentence. That's the growing, but still soft-spoken, Donohoe, who's still just a sophomore and continuing finding her way on the court at times.

Donohoe's teammates, though, always want her shooting whenever she has an open look.

“We have to make her shoot it sometimes,” Young said. “We tell her, ‘Seriously, I don't care if you miss 10 in a row. Shoot the 11th ball. We don't care.'

“She's a great shooter, obviously. If you're open, shoot out. We'll rebound it if you miss it.”
