OSU women's basketball: Cowgirls add Sequoyah Tahlequah's Lexy Keys

STILLWATER — Oklahoma State’s women’s basketball team picked up a talented in-state guard, adding Lexy Keys of Sequoyah Tahlequah to the roster on Monday.

The 5-foot-7 guard averaged 16.4 points, 4.8 assists, 4.2 steals and 3.6 rebounds as a senior, earning Super 5 designation from The Oklahoman, along with All-State honors from the Oklahoma Coaches Association and the Oklahoma Girls Basketball Coaches Association.

Keys finished her career with 1,806 points, 433 rebounds, 464 assists and 412 steals while helping her team to a pair of state titles.

Keys had previously signed with the University of Texas-Arlington, but was released after the program went through a coaching change.

Ironically, UT-Arlington’s previous coach was Krista Gerlich, who was hired at Texas Tech. In recent weeks, two players have left OSU to transfer to Texas Tech: Gerlich’s daughter, Bryn, and two-time first-team All-Big 12 guard Vivian Gray.
