NORMAN — Oklahoma carries its first winning streak in nearly a month into Monday night's nationally televised contest at No. 6 Baylor.
The Sooners won tight home games over Texas and Kansas, and did it without senior guard and leading scorer Aaryn Ellenberg, who was recovering from a concussion.
Ellenberg is still questionable for Monday's game.
In her absence, though, Saturday against Kansas, senior center Nicole Griffin was one of the veterans who stepped up her game. She scored 13 points and grabbed a career-high 14 rebounds in her fourth double-double effort of the season.
Griffin spoke with The Oklahoman on Sunday afternoon about her team's momentum, her big game against Kansas and OU's success without Ellenberg.
Q: What was the Kansas game like for you?
A: It was great. While I was playing, I didn't really realize that was happening. Down the stretch, they were telling me, “Keep rebounding.” So I thought, “Well, I guess I am getting a few more rebounds than usual.” It's fun. I guess that just comes with playing hard and really wanting to win.
Did you feel like you were in another zone in that game?
