Oklahoma loses forward Kaylon Williams for season


NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma forward Kaylon Williams will miss the upcoming season after rupturing her left Achilles tendon.

Coach Sherri Coale announced Thursday that Williams had undergone successful surgery on the injury, which occurred during practice two days earlier.

Williams averaged 4.8 points and 5.2 rebounds last season as a freshman, making 16 starts. Coale says she expected Williams to be a significant contributor on a team that also returns part-time starter Nicole Griffin and brought in junior college transfer Portia Durrett to help power forward Joanna McFarland in the frontcourt.

The Sooners play two exhibition games before opening the regular season Nov. 10 at Creighton. They were picked to finish second in the Big 12 behind defending national champion Baylor.
