Sooners Get into NCAA Tournament, Cowboys Left Out

The Sooners take on Rhode Island on Thursday at 11:15 a.m.

That, however, would be the team's last win against a ranked opponent for the rest of the season. "This year is probably as unique as any we've ever had in terms of getting off to such a hot start and then kind of the other extreme where all of the sudden we're not making shots, we're not energized, we're not doing the things that making the shots earlier provided us".

According to an article by Doug Feinberg, an Associated Press basketball writer, in today's editions of the Oklahoma City Oklahoman, the Sooners are one of eight teams in consideration for the final four spots in the NCAA Women's Tournament.

Injuries plagued FGCU for most of the season, as they did not have one game until the conference tournament where every scholarship player was active.

"Well, I'm biased, because they played us better than anybody has all year, twice, and I think they're without question a tournament team", Self said.

"We had a couple of really good practices during that time", Kruger said. However, the Cowboys won the head-to-head battle 2-1, another important factor, and their win in the conference tournament could reasonably have been viewed as the trump card.

Jake Arrieta agrees to 3-year contract with Phillies
According to Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philly, the two sides have an agreement in principle that is pending a physical. Jerad Eickhoff (4-8, 4.71 ERA), Vince Velasquez (2-7, 5.13 ERA) and Zach Eflin (1-5, 6.16 ERA) are coming off injuries.


"There is no way in the world that Oklahoma State, if Oklahoma is in, Oklahoma State had to be in the tournament".

The NCAA Tournament's first round begins on Thursday. "And that changes with each club each year depending on your roster - depending on the makeup - and obviously with the group of extremes with Trae (Young) and what he can do out there, that makes it unique, too". Winning four out of five including wins over Texas Tech and Kansas, the Cowboys looked to have a strong NCAA Tournament resume. The visiting Sooners lost 111-108 in overtime to the Blue Demons in the second game of this season.

"Not a lot of people think we should be in, which is fine". Despite missing the NCAA Tournament for the first time in five years last season, Kruger continued his track record of bouncing back.

Oklahoma went 4-11 from that point and went from being discussed as a possible No. 1 seed to having to sweat it out on Selection Sunday as the at-large teams were ticked off one by one.

"I know our team has a big chip on our shoulder", said Young, who leads the nation in points per game and assists. He added that the Sooners were "playing in an extremely hard league", and "while there's no question they stumbled down the stretch. they had enough on their résumé to be in". "I think Zach will do a great job defending him, pressuring him and help him out as much as best we can".

According to ESPN's Joe Lunardi, the Cowboys are now one of his "first four out".
