Last season in Norman, Bias managed only six points on 2-of-14 shooting. Less than two weeks later, though, when the teams met again in Stillwater, she scored 17 points.
“It's a pride thing, really,” senior guard Aaryn Ellenberg said of the Sooners' Bedlam success at home. “When you play on your court, you don't wanna lose at all. And now, you're playing the person you don't particularly like, so there's extra incentive at stake. And we usually get a really good crowd every time they come here or we go there. That adds to the excitement of everything.”
Senior point guard Morgan Hook echoed that sentiment.
“There's nothing really like Bedlam at home,” Hook said. “It's one of the games we look forward to from the beginning of the season. There's so much energy. It's basically just do or die with an in-state rival, so everybody just brings their A-game on both teams.”
