Austin: Defense Gives OU Early Lead

By Jean Neuberger - March 19, 2007

It hasn't been pretty, that's for sure!

OU's defensive play has really clamped down on Marquette, and the Sooners have the early 6-3 lead with 15:55 to go in the first half. Courtney Paris has four quick points, along with a steal, and Marquette has two turnovers, while shooting just 1-5 from the field.

MU has tried to shut down Paris, but so far she's beating them to the punch. That's great news for the Sooners, as the rest of the team is shooting 0-4 right now. I do have to give props to Jenna Plumley though for going to the hole to draw a foul, given that she's a half foot shorter than anyone else on the court.

The Sooner fans have been vocal so far, as have the MU fans, but the arena is still mostly empty, which really is kinda sad. People of Austin, where ARE you???
