Who? The Cowgirls of Oklahoma State.
Where? Stillwater, Oklahoma, home of red dirt music.
When? March 24th, in West Lafayette, Indiana.
Why? Because Jessica would hunt the committee down and do terrible things to them otherwise, duh. Strong RPI and good conference record, too.
How? They were an at-large selection.
Surprise? Predicted to finish third in the conference, they ended up tied for third with Texas, dropping to fourth on the tiebreaker.
Record: 11-7 (23-8 Big XII)
Good wins: Michigan State in Puerto Rico.
Bad losses: All losses are to conference teams. At Oklahoma is the worst.
Who's driving this thing? Jim Littell, since 2011, who came to Oklahoma State through the junior college ranks.
Quick senior guard Tiffany Bias leads the Cowgirls with 14.2 points and a touch under six assists. Sophomore guard Brittney Martin adds 11.8 points and 8.2 rebounds, while junior forward Liz Donohoe rounds out the double-figure scoring with 11.2 points and 5.4 rebounds.
Random thing that may only concern me: the alternating win-loss pattern in the last fourteen games of the season.
