Patsy Sutton, wife of former Oklahoma State basketball coach Eddie Sutton and the matriarch of the state's most prominent basketball family, has been hospitalized after suffering a major stroke Friday evening.
The Sutton family is asking for prayers.
Patsy Sutton is the mother of Oral Roberts basketball coach Scott Sutton and ORU assistant coach Sean Sutton, a former OSU head coach and assistant coach. A third son, Steve, is a Tulsa banker.
"My mom is the toughest person I know and if anybody can come through this, it's her," Sean Sutton said, describing his mother as the stabilizing influence and leader of the Sutton family.
"Our family is praying and hopeful for the best. We certainly have been touched by the love and support and prayers of so many people."
