NCAA Tournament: Can OU Win and Advance on Huskies' Home Floor?

UW, Oklahoma women set to play in NCAA tournament

And not to be outdone, Plum was responsible for many of those points from others with a career-high 11 assists.

"There is a different dynamic on the team", Plum said when asked about the growth from previous year to now.

Who can control the matchup in the inside between Pierre-Louis and Osahor will be a major factor in Monday's second-round game between the sixth-seeded Sooners and No. 3-seed Huskies.

Plum finished with 38 points against the Sooners and helped the Huskies advance to the Sweet 16 for the second straight year. The game in Norman featured Plum scoring a then career-high 45 points in the loss, a mark that stood until she erupted for 57 points in the final regular season home game of her career last month against Utah.

Still, led 15 points from Carter, 12 from Chelsea Dungee and 11 from Peyton Little, OU was within 54-47.

The Sooners began the night trying to use the same game plan that had helped Stanford and OR beat the Huskies in Seattle this season (the Ducks at nearby KeyArena during the Pac-12 tournament) by daring other Washington players besides Plum to beat them.

"We were only down seven and we had two of our best players on the bench basically the whole first half", Little said. "Super proud of the whole team, I thought we got contributions all up and down the lineup". "I think if you get caught up with the scoreboard too often and you become a results coach instead of a process coach, we are process".

That was the only place the Huskies lost on this night.

"I have a story about him that I'm not proud of". "He was the only kid in school that we could beat up". "I was a stupid kid". She found a job working for the Liberal Party and eventually became the press aide to Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau.

Plum averages over 30 points a game, and in her past two games against Oklahoma she has averaged 37 points a game.

Stiles had scored 1,062 points during her senior campaign at Southwest Missouri State (now Missouri State University) back in 2000-2001 campaign. Plum quickly knocked down a 3 to pull even with Stiles' for the most points in a single-season.

Plum added a bounce-pass assist to Katie Collier and scored on another drive and Washington had its biggest lead at 69-55 with 5:30 left in the third quarter.

For the third year in a row, the Oklahoma women's basketball team has been ousted in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Last season, Washington made the Final Four.

Both teams put on an offensive showcase in the first half. Osahor was good for 16 points and 15 rebounds, and continues to lead the nation in double-doubles. Plum is two made free throws away from setting another career NCAA record.

Maddie Manning got her second at the 3:24 mark of the first quarter and Gioya Carter picked up her third 4:18 before the half. That was especially troublesome inside, where starting center Vionise Pierre-Louis was hit with her second foul less than six minutes into the first quarter. Pierre-Louis almost had a triple-double in the first-round win over Gonzaga with 17 points, nine rebounds and nine blocks.

HITTING TRIPLES: Oklahoma was able to jump out to an early lead against Gonzaga by hitting six 3-pointers in the first quarter. It was her most since hitting 10 3s in a January win over California.
