Default OU vs. Texas Tortilla Throwers

Looks like we listen to the radio, stream it from Tech or read the play-by-play from ESPN.

How can a game not be televised in this day and age?

I am watching it right now and we are playing just as bad if not worse than we've ever played all season. I don't understand how this team has not gotten even remotely better. We are shooting airballs when we are wide open, namely Tatum and Simpson, go figure. we are bounce passing it to people's feet, passing it when there's no one there to catch it, etc. there is a complete lack of discipline to fundamentals with this team the entire season long. What a horrible display and a horrible season. SC deserves every bit of the heat she's getting at this point. There's just no excuse...these are not freshmen anymore, these are barely above high school level players for the most part and that's why they haven't gotten better as a team they just don't have the talent. There, I said it!

Ana just committed two offensive fouls in a row, she has three before half-time. So does Madie. This team is toast. Down 14 at halftime.

A whopping 15 turnovers in the first half!!

Let's use the fact that these girls are freshman as an excuse for this. I'm sure this team will miraculously turn around next season and be a tournament team somehow...

We are turning the ball over like we’ve never played the game — close to 10 in 2nd quarter.

Seem to be rebounding, but we are down 6 at this time.

ESPN counts 17 turnovers in a half.
It’s like they’ve never been on the court together before.

We also are fouling like we are in junior high.

This lousy season is in total breakdown mode tonight.

Halftime stats show it is 17 turnovers that are keeping us from winning this game.

Tonight, I think this team just wants the season to be over.

I may have spoken too soon. Ana I think has scored 10 straight for our team!

Never mind, we still suck. had a chance to win but of course we just threw the ball away. I will say the refs did seal the deal at the end now. Should have NEVER been that close!

OK. I had no radio or TV. What was all that nonsense at 0:27? Somehow, we went from 80-79 at 1:14 to 80-81 at 0:27. Suddenly, they get about four or five free throws with no time off the clock?

The refs decided it was too close and called a strange technical foul on us for fouling (we had 2 to give) and gave them 2 free throws and the ball. That determined the game. No one in the building understood the call and so it took several minutes to build some kind of faulty analysis as to why they wanted to call it that way. It was not any kind of rough foul, just a normal foul which they admitted.

Anytime we have 2 of those 3 officials we are almost guaranteed to lose.

+1 that was a horrendous call at the end and they were just handing the game to Tech at that point. My opinion is we have more talent on our team and it should have never been that close! Shaina didn't get one minute of playing time. She's almost certainly transferring. Wouldn't blame her either. A joke of a team that can barely win more than 5 games and she doesn't get to play?! She's not that much worse than any of those other girls out there. Maybe bench Tatum with her shooting wide open airballs left and right and give Shaina those minutes! another classic example of favoritism. (Unless there is a legitimate reason such as injury or academic ineligibility that she has not been playing)

Give the coaches and ladies credit, last 6 minutes apparently were the best part of the game for us.

How can you flounder for nearly an entire game and play tough basketball for the last 6 minutes.

Did TTU just let up?

Anyway. We got close.

One more to go for certain.

My guess is we put on a full court and TTU almost choked the game away. That seems to be what the play-by-play on ESPN indicates.

She isn’t playing because there is clearly mutual hatred going on.

Let that sink in...the freshman of the year last season can’t get in a game.

No doubt there is an attitude problem and if a player wants on the court they have to drop the attitude and do what the coach wants — right or wrong.

Once you are in Sherri’s dog house there’s clearly no getting out.

Frankly, when she got benched I didn’t think she’d ever get out. Sherri, IMHO, made it crystal clear — leave.

And Shaina’s attitude, while possibly correct, didn’t make the effort — but I’m guessing Pellington knew it didn’t make any difference what she did she wasn’t making the floor.

Shaina didn't start but got 20 minutes scoring 14 points against ISU but did not play in the last 4 games of the regular season against WVU, OSU, TCU and Tech. But at least Shaina did not have a TO the last 6 games of the season.

Game recap...

Quote:
LUBBOCK, Texas — The Oklahoma women’s basketball team made a big comeback Tuesday night, but it wasn’t enough in an 88-82 loss to Texas Tech in the regular-season finale for both teams.

The Sooners, who trailed by as many as 21 points in the second half, went on a 32-10 run spanning the last two minutes of the third quarter and first nine minutes of the fourth.

OU took an 80-79 lead on a layup by Madi Williams with 1:14 remaining, but the Red Raiders got the lead back on a basket by Chrislyn Carr with 42 seconds to play and was 7-for-8 from the free-throw line down the stretch to pull out the win.

Ana Llanusa scored 27 points for the Sooners, Taylor Robertson had 21, and Mandy Simpson had a double-double with 11 points and 16 rebounds.

I just watched the phantom intentional foul at the end of the game (when we we down 1) in the highlight video on Soonersports.tv. It's insane that they let this kind of inept officiating continue in women's basketball. This team has a lot of problems (24 turnovers from our starting 5 alone?!? YIKES) but for them to fight and claw all the way back only to have the game taken from them in the final seconds is disappointing.

This team needs more height badly. That can't be disputed. But for so many posters here to act like Mandy Simpson is a bump on a log who has to be benched forever in order for us to have any success is very unfair. 11 points, 16 rebounds, 4 assists, and 4 steals is a stat-line that I will take from the 4-spot in our starting lineup any day.

I hope we can get one more win against TTU, play Baylor tough, and then let the season end mercifully.

Doesn't really matter the 2nd round game for either team. Best case scenario for both Oklahoma and OSU is a first round win. No postseason for either team this year; that is absolutely crazy. Been a bad year for Oklahoma basketball teams in general even with Oklahoma men likely sneaking into the NCAA.
