OSU will host Memphis on Nov. 19 as a non-bracketed game of the classic that will be televised by ESPN.

The Cowboys will then open play in the tournament at Walt Disney World on Nov. 28 against Butler. OSU will then play either Butler or Washington State on Nov. 29. The other half of the bracket includes Memphis, LSU, St. Josephs and Siena.

The finals and consolation games will be played Dec. 1.

Stanford softball pitcher transfers to Oklahoma

NORMAN — University of Oklahoma softball coach Patty Gasso says pitcher Kelsey Stevens is transferring from Stanford to OU.

Gasso announced Tuesday that Stevens will join the defending national champion Sooners beginning in the spring of 2014.

Stevens was an All-Pac 12 Freshman selection in 2013 after going 15-7 with a 2.99 earned run average.

Stevens also faced OU during the 2013 season when she relieved in the second inning after the Sooners had scored five runs in the first in the season-opener on Feb. 8. She pitched the final six innings and held the Sooners to one run on two hits while striking out seven.

OSU's Marcus Smart invited to USA Basketball camp

The players will arrive July 21 and take part in daily training sessions each of the next three days before holding an intrasquad game on July 25.

  • Sooners shifting several positions

    Experience comes from encountering the same things in the same ways over and over again. Oklahoma’s Geneo Grissom and Julian Wilson have that at defensive end and nickleback in bunches.
    However, both will be seeing new things when practice begins. Grissom is moving to outside linebacker. Wilson will be getting a look at cornerback as his senior season begins

  • Lindley, Tom.jpg Better police needed for college teams enticed to cheat

    The NCAA once cracked down on colleges that went too far luring top prospects, then it targeted teams that lathered players with special treatment. That was until the NCAA's get-tough approach backfired, rendering it ineffective and creating an opportunity for those who want to play dirty.

  • Really one true champion?

    I decided to spare the colleagues in front of me – and myself from making a scene – by holding back flipping my table at the Big 12 Conference Football Media Days in Dallas.
    I had become exhausted by the constant use and misrepresentation by the Big 12 with their moniker of “One True Champion.” If they are going to live with the slogan, then they need to abide by that slogan.
    Perhaps its a simple case that they are keeping constant with the poor math of the 10-team Big 12 Conference.
