OU women's basketball holds Postseason Banquet


NORMAN — "Whitney is the most integral player I've ever had. She also became a very special teammate to all who had the privilege to play with her. Over the years, as I watch seniors graduate, one of the things they are saddest about is that they don't get to play with Whitney anymore. I don't know that you could ever give an athlete a greater compliment than that."

After becoming a start on Oklahoma's 2010 Final Four team, Hartman's career was also marred by an ACL injury. Hartman recovered to set an Oklahoma record by playing in 143 games in her career.

"She played every role we could ask her to play. There's probably never been a single better senior night story than Jasmine Hartman, Oklahoma versus Kansas, March 2nd.

"I know there was an argument inside her head – half the fibers of her being were saying, ‘Don't jump, don't do it!' and the other half, the half that won said, ‘Let's go!' Jasmine will forever have that experience in her repertoire."

McFarland finished her senior season as one of the nation's most dominant players. The 6-foot-3 forward collected 14 double-doubles over the team's last 26 games and averaged 14.4 points and 14.1 rebounds in the postseason.

"Jo is a living, breathing, walking billboard for what college is supposed to do. When it's all over and said and done, college is supposed to give you a diploma that says you can do something fabulous in the world for the rest of your life, but it's also supposed arm you for all the challenges that lurk in the bushes in the next phase of your life. Joanna McFarland is so armed."

Cloman, a co-captain, was force to retire from basketball in the preseason due to chronic back pain. She had spent the previous year rehabilitating and ACL tear suffered in the 2011-12 preseason.
