Courtney Paris might as well hang on to her money. Oklahoma doesn't plan to be collecting a payoff from her failed national championship guarantee any time soon.
Paris had promised that she would repay the university for all four years of her scholarship if the Sooners didn't win their first national championship, but athletic director Joe Castiglione told The Associated Press on Tuesday he doesn't plan to hold her to it.
Castiglione says he appreciated Paris' guarantee as a gesture of her devotion to her team, but he thinks the sport's only four-time AP All-American has already made "astounding" contributions to the program and women's college basketball.
