SEEING STARS
Arkansas-Little Rock forward Chastity Reed took a kick to the back of the head late in the second half.

She tipped a loose ball and fell to the court. In the scrum for the ball, Sooner forward Amanda Thompson tried to step over Reed, but her foot caught the back of her head.

Reed stayed on the floor, holding her head for several minutes.

"I’m still seeing stars,” she said after the game.

FORMER SOONERS OUT EN MASSE
More than half a dozen former OU players were spotted in the Lloyd Noble Center crowd Tuesday night.

Among the past players: Courtney Paris, Chelsi Welch, Jamie Talbert and Stephanie Simon.
