Oklahoma guard Taylor Robertson apparently knew that a fourth Golden State Warriors title in eight years was coming more than a month ago.
The Warriors defeated the Celtics in six games on Thursday night, giving the franchise their fourth title of the Steph Curry era. Curry was named the series’ Most Valuable Player.
You may have been surprised by the outcome. Robertson was not. Oklahoma’s social media team posted a video from May 2 in which they asked OU women’s players their predictions for the NBA championship. Robertson not only predicted the Warriors would win, but she also predicted the opponent and the number of games.
In case you’re wondering, the NBA playoffs had just started the second round on May 2.
Robertson is returning for a fifth season in 2022-23 as a result of her COVID-19 eligibility waiver. After starting 34 games for Oklahoma last season and helping them get back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in four seasons, she’ll not only try to better that, but she’ll be chasing career milestones as well.
She averaged 17.2 points last year and set the Big 12 and Oklahoma record for most 3-pointers in a career. She is NCAA’s active leader in free-throw percentage and was an AP All-American, a unanimous All-Big 12 selection and an Ann Meyers Drysdale Award finalist.
Robertson is within striking distance of becoming the all-time leading 3-point shooter in NCAA women’s history. She made 124 3-pointer last season and has a career-high of 131 makes in her second college season.
