OU women's basketball: Ortiz's hustle plays energize Sooners

By Brooke Pryor Staff Writer bpryor@oklahoman.comNORMAN — Gabbi Ortiz came flying across the court with such force that she ended up in the lap of an OU fan sitting courtside at the Lloyd Noble Center on Saturday afternoon. As she nearly went airborne, Ortiz deflected a pass away from a would-be Texas fast break and into the hands of Gioya Carter, creating a fast break in the opposite direction. Ortiz leapt from her temporary seat and sprinted past Carter in time to receive a pass from the senior guard and complete the break with a layup, giving OU a one-point lead in what would eventually...

Sooners fail to capitalize on Bedlam opportunities

By Ryan Aber Staff Writer raber@oklahoman.comSTILLWATER—Once again, Oklahoma had a late lead. Yet again, the Sooners lead slipped away. In a season that has been game after game of “coulda, woulda, shoulda,” the latest episode was another stinger in a disappointing season. This one saw Oklahoma lose a double-digit lead late in a 96-92 Oklahoma State win in a sold-out Gallagher-Iba Arena. The Sooners dropped to 9-17 overall and 3-11 in Big 12 play.Read more on NewsOK.com

Samaje Perine proposes with magical moment

Brooke PryorEven though he's moving on to the next phase of his football career, former OU running back Samaje Perine channelled a little bit of Sooner Magic for a pretty major life moment.  Enlisting the help of magician Daniel Fernandez, OU's all-time leading rusher proposed to Meg Haney, his girlfriend of five years, surrounded by fellow NFL hopefuls at a training facility in California. Perine traded a handful of Starbucks giftcards for Fernandez's services, and in return, he got a magic show capped with a pretty memorable moment. Fernandez selected Perine and Haney from the crowd to...

OU baseball: Mechanical change helps Irvin dominate in OU's season-opening win

By Ryan Aber Staff Writer raber@oklahoman.comNORMAN — About two weeks before Friday's game, Oklahoma sophomore pitcher Jake Irvin had to push his throwing session back a day. The next day, when he arrived at L. Dale Mitchell Park, new Sooners pitching coach Skip Johnson had a diagnosis for him. “You're sore because you're hooking that thing,” Johnson said. When Irvin was throwing his curveball, Irvin would hook his right hand during his windup, leading to strain throughout his arm. The change was immediate when Irvin dropped the hook, and he showed it off on Friday, striking out 10 with...

OU baseball: Murray looks to make most of his return to baseball

By Ryan Aber Staff Writer raber@oklahoman.comNORMAN — Kyler Murray isn't used to struggle. Growing up starring in both football and baseball, Murray was mostly dominant. At Allen (Texas) High School, he became the first player ever to earn Under Armour All-American honors in both sports. But the last few months have been a bit different from what he's used to. Murray, who will compete with Austin Kendall to become Baker Mayfield's backup at quarterback for the Sooners football team, is making his return to baseball as well. Murray and the Sooners begin the season at 4 p.m.Read more on...

OU softball: Sooners put trust in the process after early losses

By Brooke Pryor Staff Writer bpryor@oklahoman.comNORMAN — To stay focused following a disappointing season-opening tournament, the Oklahoma softball team borrowed the mantra of a rather notable Sooner alum. Trust the process. That phrase, of course, was made famous by former Philadelphia 76ers General Manager and President Sam Hinkie, who graduated from Oklahoma long before he took the reins of the 76ers.

OU men's basketball: Young's commitment speeds up Sooners' return to relevance

By Ryan Aber Staff Writer raber@oklahoman.comNORMAN — Wins have been hard to come by for Oklahoma basketball this season. In a transition year coming off a Final Four season and with a young team, the Sooners pulled off perhaps their biggest victory since last spring's NCAA Tournament on Thursday, when Norman North five-star point guard Trae Young committed to the Sooners. In picking OU over Big 12 rivals Kansas and Oklahoma State, the future for the Sooners looks better now than it did just a few days ago. Young is Oklahoma's highest-rated recruit since Tiny Gallon signed with the Sooners...
