OU head coach Sherri Coale on TCU
"Their guards are incredibly athletic. If we don't block them out they'll get 10 shots on one possession. They just really go after it. They're the type of team that sometimes their best offense is to shoot it so they can go rebound it and get a better shot. So, we've go to do a great job on them.

"They're a 20-win a season team. They've been to the NCAA Tournament for like five consecutive years, and they kicked us in Ft. Worth last year. Sandora Irvin at the post just made us look silly, so we've got a bit of a score to settle.

"I tell you what, our guys are so excited about being back at the Lloyd Noble Center in front of our home fans. They miss it. We're excited to be back and play for our fans and excited to be hosting TCU."
