The 66ers have been playing pretty good basketball lately. Tulsa has won four of its last five, including two wins this past week over the Reno Bighorns and Sioux Falls Skyforce.
66ers 100, Skyforce 95: A big fourth quarter did the trick for Tulsa, as the 66ers outscored the Bighorns 29-19 in the final frame before being outscored 76-71 in the previous three. D.J. White has been very good in his short stint with Tulsa so far. Against Reno, White had 22 points (10-12 shooting), nine rebounds and three blocks in 40 minutes. Mustafa Shakur added 19 points and seven assists, Byron Mullens 16 points and eight rebounds and Zabian Dowdell had 25 on 10-11 shooting. USC product Desmon Farmer had 34 for the Bighorns in a losing effort. DeVon Hardin did not play.
66ers 126, Skyforce 100: Cecil Brown led the way for Tulsa with 24 (8-11 from the floor, 4-5 from 3), Larry Owens added 20 and D.J. White had 17 and 10 as the 66ers rolled Sioux Falls. Maybe the most impressive thing was that the 66ers shot 60.3 percent from the floor and went 13-23 from deep. Keith Brumbaugh had 30 and Reggie Williams 31 for the Skyforce.
Tulsa takes on the Skyforce again today at 4:00 CST (which you can watch here) and then plays the Flash Tuesday and then the Thunderbirds Thursday.
