Oklahoma women beat UCLA to reach NCAA round of 16

(Continued)

Woodward, Okla. —

Ellenberg came in with a school-record 107 3-pointers this season, adding to her school-record 276. Amazingly, the 5-foot-7 junior with the slight build shoots 40 percent behind the arc.

"When I'm making shots, that confidence comes," she said. "Why not exploit that area if they're not guarding you very well?"

Down 18-15 midway through the opening half, the Sooners sprinted away.

They scored on five consecutive possessions — including three 3-pointers and another three-point play. McFarland was the key to the spurt with consecutive 3s. The first came from the right corner and the next trip down the floor she took a step toward the hoop from the extreme left corner with her defender falling down. She then stepped back and swished the shot.

Coale had an idea that her team wasn't ready to quit playing.

"We began yesterday talking about having one more week together," she said. "We didn't talk about winning the game, we didn't talk about going to the Sweet 16. We talked about having one more week together. You could see it just sort of bubbling within them. They were going to make that happen."
