just watched replay and Kia in late first quarter appears to shoot two free throws left handed. weird
This was covered in the game thread. Here's a screenshot of that moment. look at the jersey of the players lined up. All reversed. The image from that camera located on the backboard was a mirror image for some strange reason.

Was that the view from the camera up on the glass behind the hoop? I remember seeing her taking those shots from that angle, although it did not occur to me that she was shooting left handed. If she was, I'd guess it's because the image was somehow flopped via a production glitch.

I noticed it but I thought it was the camera angle.

I also noticed it at the time and concluded as well that for whatever reason the camera was shooting a mirror image. But for a brief couple seconds, I was really impressed that Kia was knocking down FT’s left handed.

I'm pretty sure this is evidence of the brilliance of Kia. She thought if she went up and shot left handed, it would confuse everybody. In fact it worked. Everybody was backwards!!! Kia still knew what basket to shoot at but it appears all the other players were backward. Next time she needs to clue in her own team mates beforehand.

(as an aside, I'm pretty sure that is what happened to Swin Cash)

Thanks for clearing that up. I noticed right away that she appeared to shoot with her left, and she never does that. I figured it was one of those " photography things" that I do not comprehend.

Actually, Oklahoma really won the game, but the TV got the scores backward.....
