Anna Llanusa is big time. Great game. Sherri has the right starting five. Now we need for some of the subs to step it up. Lampkin had some good stretches tonight. fOSU was pretty bad shooting. It is a good accomplishment that we are now better than they are. That is not saying a lot but it is something.

If we could finish with at least two more victories we would have momentum going into next year.

Nice game tonight. Our team has played hard all year, but finally getting in sync a little better, and know mostly what to do, and where to go. Mandy Simpson so smart and plays so hard. Murcer, Williams, and Lampkin all have improved a lot this year. Robertson finally getting open looks and knocking them down. And Ana Llanusa is becoming a star. We are getting better as a team and as individuals.

Go sooners!

Some of the nice things I saw tonight:

Taylor R. Driving to the basket several times. She was moving a lot and not just standing on the wing.

Jessi, really taking control on the floor. I thought she had a really good game.

Ana driving repeatedly.

We played a lot of man defense tonight and played it pretty well.

Williams and Ana had 25 rebounds between them. That is really something.

Reviewing this game and looking at the stats, it may actually be the most complete game the ladies have played this year.

Yes, OSU shot poorly, but that was at least partially because we were playing tough defense.

Looking forward to the next game.

I didn't see the West Virginia game but this is the best game I have seen this year.

Ana the difference maker. Is playing with so much confidence now.

Murcer developing into a quality point. Still making freshman mistakes but really playing well.

We had a bad stretch when Maddi began to force it inside but otherwise she was solid.

Taylor still not getting open enough. We hardly ever screen for on out of bounds plays. Got her open on a downscreen for a trey. Second time I have seen that all year. The way they are playing her tight the downscreens are probably the best way to get her open.

Good job most of the game controlling Gray.

Lampkin seemed out of sync in the first half but had some good moments in the second. Needs to get more of Simpsons minutes. Thought Mandy looked tired the second half.

Get over yourselves. My word.

I didn't say you were a moron. I said you were behaving like one. Rooting for your team "to fail" is the real adolescent behavior here.

I would love for you to go into the locker room after the game as a "fan" and a "supporter" and look that team in the eye and tell them you were "sad" they lost. Oh my word. Seriously? Oh, but you've been a fan for 15 years. I'm sure they would understand you really have their best interest at heart.

I'm loving the fact that we are so much shorter than other teams yet are outrebounding them, or being very competitive with them in that aspect. Anna has just stepped it up her sophomore season, couldn't be more proud of her and she will be robbed if she does not make all-conference. Really happy with mercer at our point right now. Just imagine, she should be better next season plus have more threats offensively to pass to!

I liked the fact that all of our starting 5 were scoring well. I now am looking forward to every game. Not so, earlier.

Mercer is great scrapping for the ball.

Stay with it Sooner81, I don't always agree with you but I enjoy your posts. I don't mind at all that you wanted OU to lose in order to hasten a coaching change, but I just can't root against the Sooners. It is not the same though, as the John Blake situation. I remember worrying about that final Tech game, fearing that if we won it we would keep Blake. Well, we won it and said goodbye Blake anyway.

Congrats on the win! Recap here...

Quote:
Ana Llanusa scored 26 points and grabbed 14 rebounds Monday night to lift the Oklahoma women’s basketball team to a 75-66 win over rival Oklahoma State in a Bedlam showdown at Lloyd Noble Center in Norman.

Llanusa was 9-for-9 from the free-throw line to help the Sooners improve to 8-19 on the season, and 4-12 in the Big 12. Oklahoma State, which dropped to 14-13 overall and 5-11 in the Big 12, was led by Vivian Gray’s 17 points.

The Sooners led 18-10 after one quarter, and still held a 55-50 advantage after three periods before extending the lead in the final quarter.

I was at the game and yes it was a nice crowd for this year's Sooner team but my friend and I both guessed the crowd to be 1,000-1,200 to 1,500 max. LNC was at least 85+% vacant when you factor both the lower and upper arena and the listed capacity is 11,528. The east side was about 40% occupied max, the west side less than 5% and the south and north ends basically vacant. My seats are on the west side and the east side had roughly 3 times as many fans as the norm in recent games when there were less than 500 at the games.

The box score indicated 4,060 tickets sold vs a season average 3,639. So the Sooners sold about 400 more tickets than they have been averaging and I would guess that at least 500 typical unused corporate ticket were used last night. If those estimates are close we did have about 900 more than we have been averaging which I think was very good support for the girls.

I'll stand by my estimate that less than 2,000 were in attendance. rocjunkie and Oliver Hardy were both there if things are normal. Perhaps they have some imput as none of us fans are attendance estimate experts.

So I will use your process, you are behaving stupid by your post above LOL. I NEVER said I donít support the girls and the team, you put those words in my mouth. I said I would like this team to lose out IF it would get Sherri fired or pushed out - surely you are smart enough to have realized that was the jest of my post (or maybe not). Have always supported the team and ANY team that wears the Crimson and Cream. That being said, a coaching change is needed and sometimes you have to wish for things - example is NFL or NBA teams who have fans that are die hard but certain years they wish for their team to lose as they season goes on so they can get the first pick in the draft. Same deal here as wishing for losses to get rid of a stale done coach

Spock, I would say around 1500 were there last night, not much more. I got there about 25 minutes before tip off and it looked bare, but late comers filled the east side nicely and the west was okay I guess. Being Belam, I thought we might get a true 3000 or so.

I'm glad of one thing - I've never seen OU lose to OSU in women's basketball, in person. I haven't been to lots of them, but at least I didn't jinx our girls.

Ana Llanusa

closing out the season. Has only played in 16 games.

How much improvement is there in the last ten games of the season?

Season/first 6 games/last ten games

FG 76/15/61

FGA 205/54/151

FG% 37.07/27.78/40.40 (42.66 for last nine games)

3FG 36/9/27

3FGA 104/32/74

3FG% 34.62/28.13/36.49 (39.13 for the last nine games)

FT 85/23/62

FTA 106/34/72

FT% 80.19/67.65/86.11

PT 273/60/213

PPG 17.06/10.00/21.3

OR 16/1/15

DR 28/5/23

TR 44/6/38

REB/Game 2.75/1.00/3.80

Assists 17/2/15

Ass/game 1.06/0.33/1.50

PFouls 52/21/31

F/GM 3.25/3.50/3.10

Turnovers 44/15/29

TO/game 2.75/0.94/2.90

Steals 31/17/14

St/GM 1.94/1.06/1.40


Her shooting has improved rather dramatically once she got her legs back. It took six or seven games to get her legs under her after the injury. The seventh game was Baylor. In these ten games, we have played everyone except Texas Tech, while catching Baylor and Kansas twice each. Ana was zero for eight from the field in the first game against Baylor. Since then, she has been on a crusade.

She certainly is the best overall player on the team and is primarily responsible for our recent wins.

No question Ana has been outstanding and playing like we all had hoped for the last few games. But I would like to see her develop her left hand. When she drives she is alway going right and the very few times she does go left it is 2-3 bounces and she pulls up well defended. A strong left hand would really elevate her game.

Also would like to see her shoot fewer scoop shots at the basket a propensity that all girls seem to have that often bites them in the backside.

Thanks Syb.

It is clearly time for posters to stop falsely claiming that no one ever improves on the team.

just considering the wonderful play of Ana, and the excellent improvement and play of Jessi, that false line needs to stop. Now.

Jessi has improved leaps and bounds over the season. And Ana has improved over this season - and has improved over even her good play last year.

It pains some of you to admit it, but you are simply wrong to claim otherwise. The only way to stop the hole from getting deeper is to - yes you know - stop digging.
