On Friday night, Oklahoma Sooners women’s basketball head coach Sherri Coale won her 400th career game. She received the historic accomplishment following a 90-80 win over the Washington Huskies at the Lloyd Noble Center in Norman Oklahoma.

She has spent her entire collegiate coaching career with the Sooners. This is her 19th-year at the school, where she is 400-194 in her tenure.

“I have a fabulous team,” Coale said. “I love who they are and tonight I really loved how they played. I appreciate the recognition for the 400th win, but I haven’t made a basket or gotten a rebound in 19-years. It’s the players doing it. I have a phenomenal staff. Jan Ross has been by my side for 19-years, for every single one of them. Lots of great coaches, lots of great players do that.”

The Sooners were led by Sharon Campbell with 26 points and 11 rebounds. Kayla Williams added 23 points and 10 rebounds.

The Sooners also had Nicole Kornet in double figures, who had 14 points and two rebounds. Peyton Little contributed 12 points and 6 rebounds.

The Huskies were led by Kelsey Plum, who had a game-high 45 points and four rebounds. Both Talia Walton and Jazmine Davis added 12 points each.

The Sooners are coming off of an 18-15 record last season. Prior to that, Coale had 21 or more wins per season for nearly a decade.

“I told our team in the locker room, the exclamation mark for me tonight is that we played the way I believe the game is supposed to be played,” Coale added. “We played it with full out effort, we played it together, we helped each other, we shared the ball, we moved around as one, our behavior was championship in every way, shape, and form and that’s the most rewarding part of this to me. That’s the exclamation point of the night, the way we performed.”

Prior to her current appointment, she won 197 games in 237 at Norman High School.
