class="body">“I’d venture to say we probably wouldn’t have beaten Kansas tonight if she hadn’t made that decision.”

Entering Saturday’s game, Hartman was averaging 14.1 minutes and 1.1 points per game. Against the Jayhawks, she played 26 minutes.

Hartman’s career-high in points had been the 14 she scored as a sophomore against OklahomaState in 2010.

“It feels like Jasmine’s been here a long time, and that’s because she has,” Coale said. “It’s kind of strange, because I can’t remember practice when she wasn’t here.

“As happy as I am that we won this game tonight, the best thing for me was getting to watch her. Jasmine is maybe our best practice player. She’s the same every day.”

Junior guard Aaryn Ellenberg led Oklahoma (20-9 overall, 10-7 Big 12) with 22 points. With a late fourth-quarter trey — her 95th of the season — she broke her own single-season OU record for 3-pointers.

The Sooners wrap up their regular season Monday at Texas Tech.

Senior center Carolyn Davis led the Jayhawks (16-11, 7-9 Big 12) with 18 points. Kansas’ loss was its fourth in a row since beating Oklahoma 81-71 on Feb. 17.

Kansas senior guard Angel Goodrich, who led Sequoyah-Tahlequah to three state championships during her standout high school career, scored 15 points and added seven assists.
