NORMAN — Madi Williams isn’t used to a less-than-starring role.
Williams was a five-star recruit coming out of Fort Worth’s Trinity Valley School and was the leading scorer for her team in the McDonald’s All-American Game.
But this season has been a learning process for the Oklahoma freshman wing.
That included her coming off the bench for the first time this season in Wednesday’s loss at Texas.
But though the Sooners lost, Williams seemed to be revitalized, scoring 18 points on 8-of-13 shooting off the bench.
“I thought she responded beautifully to coming off the bench,” Oklahoma coach Sherri Coale said.
“She came in an immediately was an aggressive scorer, communicated on defense, she ran in transition which opened up all kinds of things — sometimes her but most importantly a lot of other things on either side of her. She handled that thing exactly the way a pro would handle it.”
Coale wouldn’t say whether or not Williams would be back in the starting lineup Sunday when the Sooners host West Virginia (2 p.m., Fox Sports Southwest).
