OU women's basketball: Morgan Hook's playing career nears end

Hook’s work ethic is a reason why strength and conditioning coach Jozsef Szendrei expects the Sooners’ senior point guard to benefit the program in the future.

Oklahoma has only strung together consecutive wins twice since Big 12 play began in early January.

Hook, a team captain, has spoken publicly several times this year about her struggles motivating a team that she doesn’t feel is always playing as hard as it can.

That experience will surely serve her well as a strength and conditioning coach.

Szendrei said Hook approached him about joining the staff after the Sooners’ 2012-13 season ended in the Sweet 16 last March.

He said the graduate assistant position for Hook still doesn’t exist at the moment, but that he plans to discuss it with coach Sherri Coale and athletic director Joe Castiglione.

“I need somebody who can help with women’s basketball, and her being an alumni coming in and her having a link to the program, being the head coach’s point guard, I think it’s a great opportunity,” Szendrei said.

“You’ve got to juggle a lot of things as the captain of the team. There’s a lot expected of you.”
