Junior forward is taking advantage of increased role and making a name for herself.
NORMAN, Okla. --
When you share the same last name as someone famous, it can be difficult to distinguish yourself. It's a challenge Carlee Roethlisberger has faced her entire life.
This year, however, she is turning heads and forcing the college basketball world to take notice of her abilities on the court. An early-season injury to Whitney Hand has given Roethlisberger the opportunity to take center stage. She has taken full advantage and scored a career-high 29 points in just her second start as a Sooner.
To some, she may always be Ben's little sister, but this year Carlee is definitely making a name for herself.
