“For most teams, point guard scoring is not all that significant,” Coale said. “For us, it's extremely significant.

“Just thought she was out of sync all night. … I just think that comes with being a senior and a leader. She's expended so much energy trying to get our team moving in the right direction. Sometimes the cost of that is that it leaves her a little bit frazzled. It's a load to bear. Everybody can help her a little bit by not needing so much from her.”

Despite a tougher-than-expected challenge from Kansas State, which remains winless in Big 12 play, the Sooners feel good to have at least picked up a win with a pair of tough road trips looming.

Oklahoma plays at West Virginia next Saturday, then at Iowa State three days after that.

“It was nice for it not to come down to the final possession,” Coale said. “I think that alone gives everybody a chance to breathe. It's important when you have a whole week ahead of you, and then you've gotta go play two really tough road games.”
