OU guard Mor­gan Rich to miss sea­son


The Ok­la­homa women’s bas­ket­ball team lost a bit of depth with the an­nounce­ment that red­shirt sopho­more Mor­gan Rich will miss the sea­son.

The Ken­tucky trans­fer suf­fered a sea­son-end­ing knee in­jury dur­ing team work­outs and will un­dergo surgery.

Rich was ranked as the No. 30 player in the na­tion in the class of 2015 by ESPN’s Hoop Gurlz and av­er­aged 20.0 points and 7.1 re­bounds per game in high school.
