Both Oklahoma's men's and women's basketball teams were oh-so-close to missing out on their respective NCAA Tournaments.

Both are dancing. One day after the Oklahoma men's basketball team squeaked its way into the NCAA Tournament, the Oklahoma women's team did the same.

The men's team got in on Sunday with an 18-13 record, despite losing eight of its final 10 games. Oklahoma's women's team was one of the last four teams in on Monday, barely getting in with a 16-14 record. 

The 12th-seeded women will play in the Spokane Regional against fifth-seeded DePaul on Friday in College Station, Texas.

The women's team had an unexpected supporter in its bid to secure a spot. Baylor coach Kim Mulkey stood up for Oklahoma and coach Sherri Coale last week after the Lady Bears defeated Texas to win the Big 12 tournament. She said Oklahoma should be commended for being willing to play tough teams.

The Oklahoma men's team will play Rhode Island on Thursday in the Midwest Regional. The wild celebration shows that the Sooners knew just how fortunate they were to get in after stumbling down the stretch.
