Trip to Hawaii highlights Oklahoma Christian women's basketball schedule

EDMOND — A Thanksgiving-week trip to Hawaii highlights the Oklahoma Christian women’s basketball schedule for the 2013-14 season, which was announced Tuesday.

The 27-game schedule for coach Stephanie Findley’s squad also includes a two-game trip to Colorado along with a 20-game Heartland Conference schedule. OC’s number of conference games has increased this season with the addition of Rogers State and Lubbock Christian (Texas) – both former Sooner Athletic Conference rivals – into the Heartland Conference.

OC’s games will count in the Heartland standings, although conference officials refuse to allow the Lady Eagles to compete for the regular-season title while the university is in the NCAA Division II membership process. Had the Lady Eagles’ conference games counted last season, they would have finished third in the league. OC went 20-13 overall.

The Lady Eagles’ season opener will be at 1 p.m. on Nov. 9, when they host York (Neb.) in the annual homecoming game. Three days later, OC will host longtime rival Southern Nazarene at 5:30 p.m. OC beat eventual National Christian College Athletic Association champion SNU in two out of three meetings last season, including in the NCCAA Central Region title game.

The Lady Eagles will play in a classic at Colorado State-Pueblo on Nov. 15-16, facing Colorado School of Mines at 2 p.m. Central time the first day and the host school at 6 p.m. Central time on the second day.

OC then open conference play at St. Mary’s (Texas) on Nov. 21, followed by a trip to Heartland rival Texas A&M International on Nov. 23. Conference game times are 5:30 p.m. for Thursday games and 1 p.m. for Saturday games.

The Lady Eagles next will travel to Honolulu and spend six days in the islands while playing a pair of games in the O’ahu Thanksgiving Classic. OC will face Hawaii Pacific at 9 p.m. Central time on Nov. 27 and Chaminade (Hawaii) at 7 p.m. Central time on Nov. 28. It will be the first time the Lady Eagles ever have played in Hawaii.

  • DSC_0114web.jpg SOCCER: JV Lady Zebras edge Verdigris, 2-1

    Claremore sophomore forward Brylee Brasher may have felt a little out of position Monday night during the junior varsity game against Verdigris.
    Normally, starting in the goal for the Lady Zebras varsity team, Brasher came out of her comfort zone to start at forward for the Claremore JV.
    The position switch proved to be a great decision for head coach Robin Sutherland, as Brasher showed a tenacity on offense that led to Claremore’s 2-1 win over Verdigris.

  • Let the (real) games begin: It's NBA playoff time

    Finally, the NBA playoffs are set.
    It took the entire season to fill out those brackets.
    Overtime thrillers in Memphis and Charlotte, a go-ahead dunk in Oklahoma City to win a game and cap another scoring title for Kevin Durant, plus some good old-fashioned disinterest by Brooklyn ... all that, and more, on the final night of the season was needed before the eight conference-quarterfinal matchups in this season's NBA playoffs could be decided.
