Default Down-to-the-wire Bedlam victory

Sooners’ late run, Williams’ game-winner stun Okla. State

By Tyler Palmateer
Transcript Sports Editor

Oklahoma led for a little more than one minute Wednesday.

Seemingly left to suffer defeat over the final two minutes, the Sooners staged a furious rally and Madi Williams hit the game-winning layup out of a timeout with one second left to beat Oklahoma State 77-75 in Stillwater.

Taylor Robertson scored 25 points off 7-of-11 shooting from 3-point range, Ana Llanusa had 20 points and Williams finished with 18, including a 3-pointer that tied the game at 75 and her short drop-in off the glass that gave OU its first Big 12 win this season.

Oklahoma State had its largest lead of the game, 74-61, with 2:18 remaining before the Sooners finished on a 16-1 run. The Cowgirls were held without a field goal over the final 2:56.

OU hit four 3-pointers in that span, two from Robertson and Williams’ only two on the night.

With the game tied, OSU’s Vivian Gray missed a jumper with 3 seconds left and it fell into the hands of the Sooners, who called timeout to advance the ball past halfcourt.

With Tatum Veitenheimer inbounding the ball, Robertson was a useful decoy as she drifted out to the 3-point line, but the Sooners — who made 12 of 19 shots from beyond the arc— went inside instead.

Gabby Gregory came across the lane to set a screen for Williams, freeing her under the basket for a pinpoint lob pass from Veitenheimer, which led to the winning basket.

Congrats on the win. Here's an excerpt from the recap from Frank Bonner II...

STILLWATER — Oklahoma overcame 30 turnovers by going on a 14-1 run in the final two minutes for a comeback victory at Oklahoma State on Wednesday in the first Bedlam women’s matchup of the season.

Tatum Veitenheimer inbounded the ball from the side of the court with 3.6 seconds left and found Madi Williams under the basket for a layup that gave OU a two-point lead with 1.8 seconds left. Oklahoma State’s Vivian Gray missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer, and the Sooners (8-6, 1-1 Big 12) held on for a 77-75 victory.

Williams scored 14 of her 18 points in the second half.

“I don’t think there is anything that I can say that’s going to give that basketball game the justice that it deserves,” OU coach Sherri Coale said. “It was an unbelievable women’s basketball game, aside from us turning it over 30 times. That’s the way women’s basketball in the Big 12 Conference is. It’s just tough.”
