Cowgirl Hoops: Lexy Keys Crosses Bedlam Lines, Transfers from OSU to OU

The transfer portal knows no Bedlam boundaries.

Former Oklahoma State women’s basketball player Lexy Keys on Tuesday announced that she would transfer to Oklahoma after spending three years in Stillwater. Keys started all 32 games she played in this past season for Jacie Hoyt, and Keys started 71 games in her entire OSU career.

From Tahlequah, Keys averaged nine points a game this past season while adding 2.9 rebounds and two assists a game and shooting 32% from 3. Her best game of the year came against Kansas State where she poured in a season-high 17 points to go with seven rebounds and five assists.

OU, Keys’ new school, swept the Cowgirls this season — securing a Big 12 championship on Eddie Sutton Court that led to some misunderstandings as the Cowgirls tried to celebrate their Senior Day.

Keys scored 14 points in that game, as she did in the Bedlam game in Norman.

Keys becomes the second high-profile student-athlete this school year to make the jump from Stillwater to Norman, joining Trace Ford. Both are from Oklahoma, so it makes sense that in if either wanted to stay close to home while staying at the Power Five level they’d move to Norman. But it’s probably never going to feel great to see a student-athlete move to your rival school.
