What to Watch
• The Oklahoma-Baylor matchup pits the Big 12’s top two scoring offenses and two of its top three scorers face-to-face. Baylor (85.8 points per game) and Oklahoma (76.5 points) are 1-2 in the Big 12 scoring rankings and are seperated by one-thousandth in field goal percentage, .442 to .441. Baylor's Odyssey Sims averaged 29.6 points while Oklahoma's Aaryn Ellenberg scored 18.0.
• Oklahoma has won two straight games in the final minute on Morgan Hook game-winning shots. The Sooners were 0-4 with three overtime losses in games decided in the final minute before last week. Hook leads the Sooners with 20 points scored in the final minutes of game this season (12-14 on free throws).
• Guard Aaryn Ellenberg (concussion) has not played in OU’s last two games. The Sooners are 3-0 this season without Ellenberg (Samford, Dec. 29).
• Sherri Coale sits two wins shy of career victory No. 400. Her 398 wins are the most by an active Div. 1 coach with 20 years or fewer on their résumé.
• Sharane Campbell became Oklahoma’s 30th player to reach 1,000 career points scored. It is the second time (2010) that the Sooners have had three players (Griffin, Hook) cross 1,000 in the same season.
• Only one other Big 12 team has had a lineup with four active 1,000-point scorers. Kansas State’s 2003-04 team with Laurie Koehn, Megan Mahoney, Nicole Ohlde and Kendra Wecker was the first. West Virginia had two teams with four 1,000-point scorers (in 1997-98 and 2007-08) before joining the conference.
• Oklahoma has won its last two games while having a lower field goal percentage than its opponent. Previously, OU was 0-8 when shooting worse.
