December 26, 1987|From Times Wire Services

Mookie Blaylock scored 30 points and Harvey Grant added 26 as 12th-ranked Oklahoma survived a scare from upset-minded Georgia, 93-90, in the round-robin Chaminade tournament Friday at Honolulu.

Oklahoma led by as many as eight points midway through the second half before the Bulldogs rallied with nine straight points to go ahead, 79-78, with a little more than six minutes left in the game. The lead then changed hands five times before Ricky Grace hit a three-pointer with about a minute left to put the Sooners ahead for good, 91-89.

It was only the third time in 10 games that the unbeaten Sooners did not reach the 100-point mark.

Toney Mack scored a career-high 32 points for Georgia while Alec Kessler added 20, Patrick Hamilton had 12 and Willie Anderson scored 11.

In another game on the last day of the three-day tournament, Lionel Simmons scored 26 points and pulled down 14 rebounds, helping LaSalle withstand a late rally and beat Dayton, 69-66.
