WHAT TO WATCH
• Oklahoma has the Big 12 Championship in its backyard for the third time. In two previous visits to Oklahoma City, OU was the No. 2 seed when it won its last tournament crown in 2007 and was No. 1 in 2009.
• The Sooners are the No. 6 seed for the championship. OU won the 2004 Big 12 Championship as a 6 seed, the only team lower than a 4-seed to do so in the tournament’s history. Oklahoma is 4-1 all-time in the championship as a No. 6 seed.
• Oklahoma is 2-2 all-time against Texas in the Big 12 Championship. The Sooners’ two wins against the Longhorns in the postseason were a 67-58 victory in the 2007 Big 12 Second Round and a 66-47 victory in the 2004 Championship Game. The two losses were in the 2005 second round and 2000 second round.
• The Sooners placed four players, matching Baylor for a league high, on All-Big 12 teams. Aaryn Ellenberg was a unanimous selection to the first team and Morgan Hook was voted to the second team. Sharane Campbell and Nicole Griffin were honorable mentions.
• 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’s Aaryn Ellenberg passed Phylesha Whaley (2,187 points; 1997-2000) as the Sooners’ second leading career scorer and the Big 12 Conference’s eighth all-time on Feb. 13.
