Carrington sets school record in loss:
NSU senior Carrington Fox finished with six blocks in an overtime loss to Washburn on Saturday, but she managed to set a school record along the way.

Fox now has 124 blocks in her career at NSU, putting her atop the school's all-time list. She passed Gaile Cook, who had 121 from 1989 to 1991.

"She's been a stellar defender for us," NSU coach Randy Gipson said. "She plays with great effort and great presence on the defensive end. She's deserving of any record that she can set."

Hobbs, Gipson have a chat: NSU guard Bryton Hobbs didn't attempt a field goal in the first half of NSU's win on Saturday. He scored two points by shooting two free throws that came via a technical foul on Washburn.

Early in the second half, Hobbs was pulled from the game while Matt Logan went in. With Hobbs sitting next to head coach Larry Gipson, Hobbs appeared to be having a heart-to-heart with Gipson.

However, Gipson wouldn't reveal any details.

"That's a coach-player issue that I'm not going to discuss," Gipson said.

Hobbs went back in the game with 13:04 left and played the rest of the game. He finished with 11 points, five assists and four rebounds.

  • 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.
