There was plenty of star power in the stands at The Peake on Tuesday night.

Sitting just down the front row from the Thunder bench was Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops.

And yes, he wore his team-provided shirt.

Also in the house: former Sooner football coach Barry Switzer; NBA super fan Jimmy Goldstein; former Thunder forward Desmond Mason; former Edmond Santa Fe High standout and current Milwaukee Buck big man Ekpe Udoh; and Skylar Diggins, the former Notre Dame basketball standout recently drafted by the Tulsa Shock.

SHINY NEW SHOES

The Oklahoma City Police Department officers providing security inside The Peake did so a little more colorfully Tuesday night.

Most of the three dozen or so officers sported blue and orange tennis shoes with their uniforms. The shoes were donated to the department by News9 television anchor Kelly Ogle.

Unfortunately, you won't be seeing the officers wearing the new kicks around town. They're only allowed inside the arena on game nights.
