Oklahoma clinches Big 12 title on no-hitter during tornado watch

  Parker (23-2) threw her sixth career complete-game no-hitter Wednesday night against Oklahoma State.

Not even a tornado watch could stop Oklahoma's Paige Parker from mowing down Oklahoma State hitters in Wednesday evening's softball version of Bedlam. No, seriously.

Battling weather delays because of a tornado warning in Norman, Parker wasn't phased at all en route to no-hitting the Cowboys in an 8-0 win for the Sooners. With the victory, Oklahoma is two wins away from becoming only the second team in Big 12 history to go undefeated in conference play (Nebraska 1998).

Parker (23-2) struck out five hitters in five innings of work while surrendering just one walk. It was her sixth career complete-game no-hitter.

The Sooners will face Oklahoma State two more times to close out the regular season, with Friday's contest being played in Stillwater and Saturday's finale back home in Norman.
