Stokes Gives Southwestern Louisiana Upset Victory Over Oklahoma, 103-101

January 23, 1991|From Associated Press

NORMAN, Okla. — A baseline jump shot by Marcus Stokes with five seconds left--his only field goal of the night--gave Southwestern Louisiana a stunning 103-101 victory over No. 13 Oklahoma Tuesday night.

Stokes' basket came after Jeff Webster had hit a jump shot from the free-throw line with 19 seconds remaining to tie the score. After two timeouts, the Ragin' Cajuns got the ball upcourt and Stokes made his shot from about 17 feet.

It marked the first time in 102 games that Oklahoma (14-4) had lost while scoring 100 or more points under Coach Billy Tubbs.

Southwestern Louisiana committed only 12 team fouls and Oklahoma never got into the bonus. The Ragin' Cajuns (12-5) outscored Oklahoma, 27-9, from the free-throw line and outrebounded the Sooners, 49-44. Southwestern Louisiana (12-5) came in having lost four of its previous five games.

Kevin Brooks led Southwestern Louisiana with 26 points and Mitchell had 17.
