Oklahoma’s Taylor Robertson inked her name in the NCAA record books on Saturday with her record-breaking 498th career 3-pointer.

The guard set the Division I women’s basketball record for 3-pointers, nailing her first attempt of the game against Iowa State to move into first place. She went 6-for-8 from 3-point range, but the No. 14 Sooners lost 86-78 to the No. 18 Cyclones.

Robertson is a fifth-year senior, but she still surpassed the record set by Ohio State’s Kelsey Mitchell one game sooner: 138 to 139. She also broke it in fewer attempts: 1,134 to Mitchell’s 1,286.

The record also means that Robertson has made at least one 3-pointer in 62 consecutive games

“I think the main thing is consistency,” Robertson said. “I’ve been consistent since I could even pick up a ball, and just doing it over and over. Just nailing down the fundamentals and believing you’re going to make it.”

Payton Verhulst announced her commitment with two words: “Boomer Sooner.”

Just one week after her decision to transfer from Louisville women’s basketball was made public, Verhulst tweeted her next destination, accompanied by a picture of her in an Oklahoma jersey and a graphic reading, “Welcome home Payton Verhulst.”

The sophomore was a sought-after recruit coming out of high school and a solid get for Oklahoma in the transfer portal. Oklahoma’s campus, located in Norman, is just a five-hour drive from Verhulst’s hometown of De Soto, Kansas, compared to the eight-hour trek to Louisville.

Verhulst played her freshman season at Louisville, coming off the bench and recording 11.1 minutes per game, 3.3 points and 19 rebounds. In eight games as a Cardinal this season, the sophomore averaged 15 minutes, 6.4 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game.

Oklahoma is 8-1 so far this year and sits at No. 24 in the polls.

While Verhulst will have to sit out the rest of this season, she will be eligible to play for the Sooners in the 2023-24 season.

The 6-1 guard was the No. 12 recruit in the class of 2021 and fielded offers from the country’s top programs, including UConn, Stanford and Notre Dame before committing to Louisville. 

Louisville started the season ranked No. 7 in the country before a rocky start to the season dropped the Cardinals from the AP poll completely.  

A Dec. 4 loss to Middle Tennessee was the low point, and also when Verhulst’s decision was made public.

“She was just looking for some more opportunities to play and then just decided to transfer,” coach Jeff Walz told reporters after the game. “I’ve never been one to force some kid or try and force them to stay. I wasn’t going to do it. We wished her absolutely the best and hope she has great success.”

Oklahoma State stunned No. 1 Oklahoma, defeating their in-state rivals 4-3 to claim their first Big 12 softball title Saturday.

The Cowgirls took the lead in the top of the eighth, loading the bases with nobody out before Kiley Naomi took a four-pitch walk from Nicole May.

Oklahoma State hung onto the 4-3 lead, with Morgan Day closing out the game, shutting down the Sooners from the mound.

The victory marks the program’s first-ever Big 12 title and Oklahoma State’s first conference championship since the Cowgirls won the Big Eight regular-season trophy in 1995.

“This is another feather in our cap as a program,” head coach Kenny Gajewski said. “We just have to keep doing things we haven’t done before. We hadn’t won the Big 12 tournament, now we have. We need to keep winning and continually build.”

The Cowgirls’ historic stand puts them in a promising position for Sunday’s NCAA selection day, where seeding for the NCAA Tournament will be revealed.
