A solid starting group for the Cowgirls.
Who? The Cowgirls of Oklahoma State.
When do they play in the first round? The Cowgirls play FGCU on Saturday, March 21 at 11 a.m. ET.
Where? Stillwater, Oklahoma, which has a remarkably cheap bus system.
Why? The numbers do it. I’m really not thrilled with their out-of-conference schedule.
How? They were an at-large selection.
Surprise? Predicted to finish fourth in the conference, they tied for third with three other teams, seven games behind Baylor.
Record: 20-11 (9-9 Big XII)
Good wins: Well, they certainly have Iowa State’s number, getting a trifecta of wins over the Cyclones.
Bad losses: West Virginia.
Who’s driving this thing? Jim Littell, since 2011, father of two baseball players.
Junior guard Brittney Martin leads the Cowgirls’ attack, at 13.7 points per game, adding a team-high 8.7 rebounds and 2.7 steals- but she’s one of four strong options for Oklahoma State. Senior posts Liz Donohoe and LaShawn Jones, as well as sophomore guard Roshunda Johnson, all average in double figures.
