All 4 Oklahoma teams make NCAA women's field

All four Oklahoma schools are in the NCAA women's tournament field in the same year for the first time.

Oklahoma and Oklahoma State both got at-large bids to the tournament Monday night, joining Oral Roberts and Tulsa — which both got automatic berths for winning their conference tournaments.

OU (22-10) makes its 14th straight tournament as a No. 6 seed and will play Central Michigan on Saturday in Columbus, Ohio.

OSU (21-10), which won the Women's NIT last season, is a No. 7 seed and will face DePaul on Sunday in Durham, N.C.

ORU (18-12) is back in the field for the first time since 2008, getting a 15th seed and a Saturday game against Tennessee. Tulsa (17-16) will make just their second NCAA appearance as a No. 16 seed, playing at top-seeded Stanford on Sunday night.
