While most people’s focus has been on the the men’s march madness, the women are also doing their thing this week. The Lady Sooners took on and beat Central Michigan this past weekend in the opening round of the Women’s NCAA tourney.
The Bruins came to Norman and beat the Sooners on their home court, 86-80. That was the second game of the season for the Sooners, so quite a bit has changed since then – injuries, growing as a team, etc, etc.
The Bruins, much like the Sooners, were also hit with the injury bug throughout the season. They have only had three players who have been in the line-up consistently all season.
UCLA is coming off a 66-49 win over Stetson in their first round game.
The Sooners/Bruins series is tied at 2-2 all-time. They have never played on a neutral court. Both teams split the series one and one at their respective home courts.
The winner of this game will take on the winner of Creighton and Tennessee who also play on Monday.
