Head coach Sherri Coale and the Sooners gathered with members of the media in the Chesapeake Courtside Club above the practice facility of the Lloyd Noble Center for the Sooners’ annual media day before hitting the hardwood for their first full practice of the year.
“We have had a couple of training camps,” Coale said. “We have a defensive training camp and an offensive training camp where we go four days a week for each. That’s the look that we have had primarily. They have great energy; they seem to have a great deal of confidence and great chemistry together. We’re just young, unproven and we have to earn our way.”
The Sooners’ fifteen-person roster features five freshmen and six sophomores. Many of those youngsters are expected to play key roles for the Coale’s squad. One place that youth will be on display is at point guard, where freshman Gabbi Ortiz, sophomore T’ona Edwards and redshirt sophomore Maddie Manning are competing for the starting job.
