Sherri Coale believes women's basketball can build on this moment if the superstars stay put

The Jenni Carlson Show

Apr 4 2024 • 23 mins

Sherri Coale remembers when it was a big deal for OU and every other Big 12 women’s basketball team to have two conference games guaranteed to be on TV. That was one of many growth moments the former Sooner women’s basketball coach experienced during her tenure. But this current explosion has taken the sport and the women’s basketball tournament to never-before-seen heights. Could it be sustained beyond Caitlin Clark and Angel Reese? Coale talks about all that and more on The Jenni Carlson Show.
