Billy Tubbs returned to basketball Thursday, becoming Lamar's coach again while keeping his job as athletic director. Mike Deane, who was 52-62 in four years as the school's coach, will be reassigned, Lamar President James Simmons said. Tubbs coached Lamar for four of his 28 seasons, turned Oklahoma into a national basketball power in the 1980s, then helped Texas Christian improve its program.

Greedy Daniels and Myron Anthony, two of Texas Christian's top players, were dismissed from the team for an undisclosed violation of team rules, Coach Billy Tubbs announced. Daniels, among the NCAA Division I leaders in steals, played a key role in the Horned Frogs' 102-88 upset of No. 20 Fresno State on Thursday night. Anthony, the team's second-leading rebounder, did not play in that game because of a sprained left ankle. Anthony, a senior forward, is averaging 14.3 points and 7.4 rebounds.

Oklahoma, OK. Billy Tubbs said he was satisfied. Pleased with his young men. Oklahoma's unbeaten basketball team had just run and run and run and run and run and run and run and won, 136-121, in 40 breathless minutes at Loyola Marymount Saturday, and Bo Kimble, Loyola's leading scorer, had not burned the Sooners', quote, defense, unquote, quite as badly as the coach had feared. "Purty good," Tubbs said, glancing at a stat sheet. "We held Kimble to 46."

Oklahoma Coach Billy Tubbs apologized to an Oklahoma City television station cameraman for an alleged altercation that occurred after the Sooners fell to Oklahoma State. While walking toward the locker room in Gallagher-Iba Arena after the 77-74 loss, Tubbs allegedly reached for a camera lens, ripping the lens cover off. The cover struck an Oklahoma City television station KFOR-TV photographer in the right leg, cutting him, police said. Oklahoma State police are investigating.

Contrary to popular belief, Billy Tubbs doesn't just roll the ball out and tell his team to play. At practice one day this week, the Oklahoma basketball coach actually ran through a play for his team. To finish it off, he put up a 3-point shot. Air ball. "Rebound that sumbitch," he hollered with a grin. "Foul. Somebody hit my elbow." Laughs all around. Later he walked through another play and shot a layup. Stacey King, his All-American center, blocked it and told him, "Nice shot, coach."

The 200-point game never came. That was what Billy Tubbs used to talk about when Oklahoma, Loyola Marymount and U.S. International were trying to make scoreboards blow a fuse. No Division I team ever pulled it off. But four years after leaving Oklahoma for Texas Christian, Tubbs still strains the limits of the game--not to mention his relationships with the coaches he never lets up on. "Basically, we moved the Oklahoma program south to Fort Worth, Texas," Tubbs said.

Billy Tubbs said he was ready for a change, so he is leaving Oklahoma after 14 seasons to become basketball coach at Texas Christian. "You can only get excited about going to Manhattan, Kansas, so many times," Tubbs said Saturday in Ft. Worth. So he opted for a chance to see Waco, Lubbock and College Station, Tex. Tubbs, 59, was the Sooners' winningest basketball coach. He signed a five-year contract to replace Moe Iba, who was fired in March after seven seasons.

After Oklahoma beat Missouri in the Big Eight tournament Friday, Missouri Coach Norm Stewart did not shake hands with Oklahoma Coach Billy Tubbs. Earlier this season, Stewart called Tubbs a jackass. Tubbs responded by calling Stewart Francis the Talking Horse. Correcting himself Friday, Tubbs said: "I got Mr. Ed, the talking TV horse, mixed up with Francis the Talking Mule from the movies. I meant to say mule because a mule is not a thoroughbred.
