MIX OF SOONERS

Kruger was pleased that so many of his players got playing time.

A dozen Sooners got to play; eleven of them ended up playing 10 minutes or more. Ten players registered a shot, and 11 pulled down a rebound.

Even walk-on James Fraschilla recorded four minutes of time and took two shots from beyond the arc. He missed both, but each time he went to put up the shot, his teammates raised off the bench with three fingers in the air.

“We got a little bit of playing time for the guys on the white team, who work so hard all week for us,” M'Baye said of the substitutes. “Just the fact that they got to step on the floor today and had a little fun, that's great for them. That's great for us.”

FORMER PC NORTH STANDOUT LEADS ISLANDERS

The Islanders' Joy Williamson, a former Putnam City North player, tied his career high with 14 points against the Sooners. He also had five rebounds.

Williamson previously played two seasons at Redlands Community College in El Reno, where he averaged 18.7 points per game.
