The Sooners' main concern, of course, will be Baylor's two-time All-America senior center, Brittney Griner, who averages 21.8 points and 8.1 rebounds per game.
Griner — described by Coale as, “An incredible talent, the likes of which our game has not seen and may not see again” — is 5-2 against Oklahoma over her career, but hasn't lost to the Sooners since her freshman season. She's averaged 19.6 points and 7.6 rebounds against OU.
