To commemorate the death of former Sooner basketball star Wayman Tisdale, ESPN Classic (Cox 255) plans to rebroadcast two games tonight from his storied University of Oklahoma career.

At 7 p.m. the network will air the NCAA Midwest Regional semifinal game against Louisiana Tech on March 21, 1985. Tisdale hit a 6-foot jumper with three seconds left in overtime to give the Sooners the 86-84 victory.

At 9 p.m. will be the Jan. 28, 1983, Bedlam game at Norman. OU edged Oklahoma State 81-80 behind 22 points each from David Little and Tisdale in this Big Eight regular-season game.
