Oklahoma State basketball: Tiffany Bias faces tough challenge in Baylor's Odyssey Sims

After struggling in OSU's home loss to West Virginia, Cowgirls point guard Tiffany Bias will face Baylor's All-American.

“What makes (Sims) different than a lot of people is she likes playing defense better than playing offense,” Littell said. “There's not many players that have that makeup anymore

“Her team feeds off of that, and her offense feeds off of her defense. She's just a special player.”

Bias struggled — as most players do — in her last game against Baylor, tallying nine turnovers compared to just five assists last month. And Littell, like Bias, was up-front Wednesday night in his assessment that the Cowgirls will usually struggle to win when Bias doesn't play well.

But he's certainly not worried about the psyche of his point guard moving forward.

“She's going to compete,” he said. “She had a rough one (against WVU), but there's never been any question of her desire to play hard and the motor that she has. There's nobody that felt worse about having a high number of turnovers than her.

“She's going to continue to get better because of the way she approaches each day in practice.”
