NORMAN, Okla. — Sooner cagers lose

in European finale

NORMAN (AP) — The University of Oklahoma men’s basketball team lost to a member of France’s National Basketball League in the finale of its European exhibition tour.

After winning each of its first four games by at least 18 points, OU fell 80-70 Thursday night to Evreux, a Group B member of France’s professional basketball league.

The Sooners trailed most of the night, but rallied in the fourth quarter with an 11-1 run for a 68-63 lead — their largest of the game. But things unraveled from there as they were outscored 17-2 the rest of the way.

Senior guard/forward Cameron Clark led OU in scoring for the fourth time in five games. He registered 15 points and added eight rebounds. Clark finished the tour averaging 16.8 points and 7.0 boards.
