SECAUCUS, N.J. (AP) - Courtney Paris still wants to give back to
Oklahoma.

The Sooners' four-time All-American had promised to pay back her scholarship if she didn't lead Oklahoma to a national title. The Sooners fell short in the Final Four against Louisville, but athletic director Joe Castiglione said Tuesday the university wouldn't hold Paris to her promise.

So instead Paris says she plans to set up a fund that will go to the needy in Oklahoma.

Paris, the daughter of former NFL lineman Bubba Paris, was selected by Sacramento with the seventh pick in the WNBA draft Thursday.

The cost of four years at Oklahoma has been estimated conservatively at $64,000.

Paris' base salary in the WNBA this season is expected to be around $41,000.
