With OU's loss and Oklahoma State's win at Baylor Thursday night, the Sooners will be the No. 5 seed in the Big 12 Tournament and face No. 12-seed Missouri Tuesday, March 11, at 2:30 p.m. Central. The winner of that game will the No. 4-seed Texas A&M Wednesday, March 12, at 2:30 p.m.
The Sooners were outrebounded in consecutive games for the first time since the 2004-05 season when Texas Tech (Feb. 23, 2005) and Texas (Feb. 26, 2005) accomplished the feat in back-to-back games.
Oklahoma closed the regular season with two losses (Texas and Texas A&M) after opening the season 0-2 with losses to Maryland and Tennessee.
It is the first time since the 1997-98 season that Oklahoma will enter the Big 12 Tournament coming off two or more consecutive losses.
Nyeshia Stevenson sat out of Thursday night's game after injuring her right knee during practice Wednesday, March 5. Stevenson will have an MRI Friday afternoon to determine the extent of the injury, which is believed to be a partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).
Paris had just two rebounds in the first half, marking just the seventh half of her career recording two or fewer rebounds. The other six occasions happened during her freshman season (2005-06).
Paris' double-double streak extended to 89 games Wednesday night. Paris has 94 double-doubles in 97 collegiate games.
Paris became the Oklahoma's career record holder in field goals made. She entered the night 10 shy of Molly McGuire's (1980-83) 859 career field goals made and collected 11 for a career total of 860. Paris is also OU's career record holder in total rebounds, offensive rebounds, defensive rebounds, blocks and double-doubles.
Plumley attempted a career high 14 three-point field goals. Plumley's 14 three-point attempts matched a program record held by Erin Higgins (twice) and Angie Alexander (Feb. 12, 1991).
