Cloman, who missed all of the 2011-12 season after suffering an ACL injury in the preseason, will still be around the program and plans to travel with the team.

NEWCOMERS CHIP IN

Newcomers Nicole Kornet, Maddie Manning and Portia Durrett all played Thursday.

Kornet finished with 14 points, eight rebounds and had three steals. Manning had nine points and eight rebounds.

Durrett, a junior transfer from Walters State (Tenn.), had the most minutes of the newcomers with 25. She scored 16 points and added six rebounds and three steals.

THE ROYAL JONES FAMILY

During a timeout late in the first half, a video played featuring clips of things the Sooners did during the offseason.

The video superimposed the athletes' heads onto others' bodies. It took fans through a summer vacation at the beach, snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef in Australia on their summer trip and running onto the court before the exhibition game.

The clip that got the loudest cheers, though, was one that superimposed the faces of Oklahoma senior Whitney Hand and her husband, Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones, onto the bodies of Prince William and Kate Middleton on their wedding day.
