OU women’s basketball notebook: WNBA invites Amanda Thompson

By Berry Tramel, Staff Writer, Published: April 2, 2010
In four NCAA games, Nyeshia Stevenson is 14 of 15 on foul shots and Danielle Robinson is 13 of 15. Abi Olajuwon’s 80 percent (8-for-10) is the lowest on the team in the NCAAs.

→OU’s Nyeshia Stevenson on teammate Abi Olajuwon: "Now I think she gets it. She sees a sense of urgency, and she knows that we need her every time. She’s been great. I think there’s just a sense of urgency for her.”

→Stanford coach Tara Vanderveer: "In preparing for Oklahoma, they are like us, I think, in that I call them my regular team. You look at Kentucky, they’re extreme in what they do. You look at even Baylor with (Brittney) Griner, that’s extreme. You know what I mean? With Xavier, that’s extreme, they’re so big. For us and Oklahoma, we’re kind of regular teams. If anything, Oklahoma, they don’t maybe have as much size as we do but they have more backcourt quickness.”

→OU coach Sherri Coale on her seniors: "I could not be prouder of Abi, Ny and Amanda. They’ve been phenomenal all season long, and the way they practice every day, their work ethic, their continued willingness to learn, the glue that they’ve been for the younger guys in teaching them how to be a team and how to work and how to have high expectations.”
