If you can’t beat ‘em … OC students cheer for OU

Sherri Coale, coach of the University of Oklahoma’s women’s basketball team, stands with students from Oklahoma Christian University who shed their Eagles gear to root for the Sooners. Coale was impressed by what she heard from OC’s fans as her Sooners played the Lady Eagles in a recent exhibition game in Norman, Okla. The Sooners bounced back from a 41-38 halftime deficit and beat the Lady Eagles 88-76, but the boisterous Eagles fans overpowered the OU fans — and the OU band.
Coale, a former point guard for the Lady Eagles and a member of the Westside Church of Christ in Norman, recruited OC students to cheer for the Sooners against No. 2-ranked Duke. The 17th-ranked Sooners lost the game 94-85, but Coale said she was proud of her team’s effort — and the noise level.
