Oklahoma senior point guard Morgan Hook has drastically improved her game after a rough start to the Sooners' Big 12 schedule.

Hook averaged 10 points and 3.2 rebounds, and shot just 28 percent from beyond the 3-point line over Oklahoma's first five conference games.

In the last five games, though, Hook is averaging 13.2 points and is hitting 50 percent of her 3-point attempts.

The Sooners earned a huge victory over Oklahoma State last Saturday, but lost at home to Baylor two days later. In that game, starting guards Aaryn Ellenberg and Sharane Campbell each fouled out early in the second half.

OU returns to action Sunday afternoon at Kansas.

Q: How do you think the team has responded to the Baylor loss?

A: I think everyone's just kinda playing with a chip on their shoulder. We went and watched the film, and we still should've won the game, even when Aaryn and Sharane went out. We got to within eight or six, and then we'd make a stupid mistake on defense that was something we don't usually make. I think we just all were frustrated, because no matter how bad we played in the first half, no matter who was on the court, we still had a chance to beat them.

I know you don't want to claim moral victories, but was it encouraging to see the team play well without those two?
