OU women hit by injury bug early

MOORE — In an open scrimmage Friday evening at Lloyd Noble Center, coach Sherri Coale’s Oklahoma women’s basketball team may have suffered a very big loss with its season very near.

During the scrimmage, redshirt freshman guard Maddie Manning, who lost her true freshman season to a torn anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee, suffered a potential season-ending knee injury to her left knee.

The program is still waiting to learn the exact nature of the injury, though it is feared to be serious.

Additionally, Sooner point guard Morgan Hook suffered a dislocated thumb on her right hand.

There is no timetable for Hook’s return to full action, though the program believes her time away will be measured in days rather than weeks.

Manning had just moved into the starting lineup last season when she blew out her knee in practice.

In six games last season, she averaged 21.5 minutes, 6.2 points and 3.3 rebounds.

The exhibition portion of OU’s schedule begins at 7 p.m. Nov. 2 against Cameron at Lloyd Noble Center. 

The regular season begins Nov. 8, also at Lloyd Noble Center, against Stetson, as part of the Preseason WNIT.

Swisher named POW

Mid-America Christian University junior forward Chelsea Swisher has been selected as the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) Women’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week. 

Swisher put together another dominating week, scoring five goals along with two assists to lead the Lady Evangels to a pair of victories this past week. 

Swisher scored twice and dished out one assist in a 3-2 victory over Texas Wesleyan University, including the game-winning assist on Ciara Mitchell’s goal in overtime. 

The Moore, Okla. native then recorded a hat trick to fuel a 6-0 rout of Southwestern Christian University. 

Swisher is currently pacing the Sooner Athletic Conference in goals (16) and assists (13).
