Jocelyn Alo says pain of April loss fueled Oklahoma in big WCWS win over Texas: 'Chip on our shoulder'

OKLAHOMA CITY -- This Oklahoma softball juggernaut is already secure as one of the greatest teams of all time.

But on Saturday, after cruising to a 7-2 win over arch-rival Texas to move to 56-2 on the season, OU star Jocelyn Alo said those two losses worked as motivation as the Sooners advanced to the Women's College World Series semifinals for the sixth consecutive year.

After beating the Longhorns, Alo pointed back to that April 16 loss, when Texas snapped the Sooners' record 40-game winning streak as Texas pitcher Hailey Dolcini gave up just two hits in a 4-2 upset.
