The Pac-12's decision not to expand has made the remaining nine Big 12 schools trend toward an agreement to stick together. But Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe's situation is tenuous at best, Andy Katz reports.
Aaryn Ellenberg scored 23 points in her Bedlam rivalry debut, Danielle Robinson added 20 points and seven assists and Oklahoma (No. 12 ESPN/USA Today, No. 13 AP) beat Oklahoma State 82-77 for its seventh straight win in the series.
Danielle Robinson and Amanda Thompson hit big free throws in the final seconds, lifting No. 12 Oklahoma past Oklahoma State (No. 21 ESPN/USA Today, No. 20 AP) 74-69 on Saturday and sending the Sooners into the Big 12 title game against Texas A&M.
Amanda Thompson scored a career-high 29 points and teamed with Jasmine Hartman for Oklahoma (No. 12 ESPN/USA Today, No. 11 AP) as the unlikely leaders of a record-setting 3-point avalanche in a 95-62 rout of No. 20 Oklahoma State on Sunday.
Danielle Robinson scored a career-high 36 points and No. 13 Oklahoma beat Oklahoma State (No. 11 ESPN/USA Today, No. 10 AP) 77-66 on Saturday, the Sooners' 21st win over their Bedlam rival in their last 22 meetings.
With the most dynamic freshman in the country, one of the remaining undefeated teams and the usual collection of NCAA tournament hopefuls, the Big 12 could be the most interesting conference this season.
