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.

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.

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."
