“Our goal was to finish in the top three in the league and to get, ironically, an opportunity to play in Oklahoma City. As we stand here now, that's exactly what we did.”
OU guard Aaryn Ellenberg wants another shot at UCLA, which beat the Sooners 86-80 on Nov. 14 in Norman.
“That would be some great basketball,” Ellenberg said. “I don't think we played our best basketball the last time we played them.”
‘A LOT LIKE KANSAS STATE'
Immediately after finding out the Sooners' opponent, Coale was asked which Big 12 team she'd compare the Chippewas to.
She didn't have an answer then, but after watching film on Central Michigan, she came up with one.
“They're a lot like Kansas State,” Coale said. “They don't have a Brittany Chambers, though they do have a very good 3-point shooter.”
Niki DiGuilio is hitting 42 percent (60 of 143) from behind the 3-point line for the Chippewas.
