All 4 Oklahoma teams make NCAA women's field


Associated Press

— 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.
