(Norman-AP) -- Oklahoma returns four starters to this year's women's basketball squad.

The Sooners also get back senior forward Caton Hill, a big part of the Sooners' NCAA runner-up team in 2002. Hill played just four games last season before a knee injury.

Hill started all but one game in her first three seasons at Oklahoma. The Sooners tied for the Big 12 title before winning it outright the next two seasons and playing in the NCAA championship game in 2002.

Oklahoma coach Sherri Coale says she's going to enjoy every basket Hill scores and every rebound she gets this year.

Coale says the greatest contribution Hill makes is her presence, not her statistics. Coale says Hill is the anchor of the Sooner squad.
