Sooners’ seniors go out on high note

Jasmine Hartman made her final game at the Lloyd Noble Center memorable.

The senior scored a career-high 18 points as Oklahoma beat Kansas 73-64 Saturday on senior night for the Sooners.

"This senior class," OU coach Sherri Coale said, "if I had one word to sum them up it would be resilience."

Oklahoma's field goal percentage never dipped below 50 percent and the Sooners never trailed in the second half for the team's eighth straight 20-win season.

Aaryn Ellenberg scored a game-high 22 points. Nicole Griffin, Morgan Hook and Joanna McFarland each had 13.

McFarland, OU's only other active senior, added 10 rebounds for her 10th double-double of the season.

Kansas led 35-29 with five minutes to play in the first half before Oklahoma finished the half with an 8-0 run concluded with four straight points from Hartman.

Oklahoma led 39-35 at halftime.

Carolyn Davis scored 18 points to lead Kansas. Monica Engelman added 16 points.

 The Sooners close the regular season at Texas Tech Monday at 7 p.m. before preparing for the Big 12 Tournament in Dallas (March 8-11).
