The Oklahoma Sooners women’s basketball team began assembling talent for its 2023-24 team as the NCAA’s early-signing period opened on Wednesday.
The Sooners, led by coach Jennie Baranczyk, are coming off a return to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2018 under former coach Sherri Coale.
Baranczyk led the Sooners back into the AP Top 25 last season and hosted an NCAA Tournament sub-regional. The Sooners won their first-round game but lost to Notre Dame in the second round.
The Sooners return ton of experience from last year’s team, including All-Big 12 performers Taylor Robertson and Madi Williams.
Before the signing period, the Sooners had two commitments, one of which was guard Sahara Williams, who is ranked No. 23 by ESPN.com.
