Sherri Coale Unhappy After Loss to No. 4 Baylor

Oklahoma women's basketball coach and former high school English teacher Sherri Coale found plenty of adjectives to describe her team's performance in Monday's 78-70 loss to No. 4 Baylor, and almost none of them were positive.

Coale's squad missed a stunning 19 layups in the defeat and went scoreless for the first three minutes of both halves.

“It's starting the game not afraid,” a visibly angry Coale said of what needs to change. “And starting both halves not afraid. That's what it is. Playing with a sense of bravado, playing with some intensity, communicating with one another. That's what it is.”

Baylor led 16-4 after the first seven minutes of the game, but because Baylor was also struggling to hit routine shots, the Sooners were able to hang around and only went into halftime down by 10.

After the break, though, Oklahoma again found itself unable to score points — turning the ball over on its first four third quarter possessions — and the Bears opened the second half on a 7-0 run. (More at The Oklahoman)
