NORMAN—Two Oklahoma basketball players were cited in connection with a shoplifting incident at the Dillard's department store at the Sooner Mall.


Steven Pledger, a 6-4 freshman guard, and Andrew Fitzgerald, a 6-7 freshman forward, were cited for petty larceny and released after Saturday's upset win over Texas.

A Dillard's employee caught the two, who were booked at 8:50 p.m. Saturday, Norman police said.

A team spokesman said they were aware of the situation, but all team matters would be handled internally.

Pledger played 24 minutes and scored nine points in the win. Fitzgerald started the game, played 19 minutes and scored three points.
