The Cowgirls will start postseason this weekend in the Big 12 Woman's Basketball Tournament in Oklahoma City with round three of Bedlam. This season, Oklahoma State has swept Oklahoma with a win in Norman for the first time since 1998.
Oklahoma State will be the No.4 seed and will play the first quarterfinals game against No.5 seed Oklahoma at 11 a.m. Winner of that game will play the winner of game four on Sunday and it will most likely be No.1 Baylor (again). The Cowgirls are 14-19 overall in Big 12 Tournament play. Last year in the Big 12 Tournament, OSU defeated Iowa State in quarterfinals before losing to eventual Big 12 champion, Baylor Bears in semi-finals. All of the games will be televised on Fox Sports Networks.

Since the last time these two teams met, the Sooners have gone 5-3 and out of those five wins, they had one spectacular one with an upset over No. 7 Texas in Norman.

Williams was selected to the Big 12 second-team at the end of the season and is one of the players that scores in double figures (13.1 ppg).
