OU softball: Grace Lyons makes SportsCenter No. 1 play

Grace Lyons' game-clinching catch Thursday night against Texas earned her the No. 1 spot on SportsCenter's top-10 plays of the day. 

With Oklahoma up 3-1 in the bottom of the seventh and the tying run at the plate, Texas pinch hitter MK Tedder hit a looping pop up that looked destined to fall in between the pitching circle and second base. 




But Lyons charged in from shortstop and sprawled out for the catch to end the game. 

The freshman from Peoria, Arizona has started every game at shortstop for the Sooners. 

OU impoved to 39-2 Thursday night, extending its winning streak to 29 games. 

The Sooners and Longhorns will play at 6 p.m. Friday and 1 p.m. Saturday to conclude the series.
