Sooners topple Huskies

Posted: Tuesday, January 08, 2002

HARTFORD, Conn. -- Ebi Ere's driving jumper with 16 seconds left, Oklahoma's only field goal over the final 5 1/2 minutes, gave the No. 5 Sooners a 69-67 victory over Connecticut on Monday night.

Ere, a junior college transfer, finished with 24 points and nine rebounds as Oklahoma (12-1) won its 11th straight game.

Connecticut (8-3) had two chances to win, but Tony Robertson turned over the ball on the first possession after Ere's basket.

No. 24 Butler 62, Cleveland St. 45

CLEVELAND -- Rylan Hainje and Thomas Jackson scored 14 points apiece for the Bulldogs (14-1 overall, 1-1 Horizon), who looked rusty early in their first game since losing the conference opener to Wright State in double overtime last week.

But after making just four of their first 17 shots, the Braves went 11 of 13 from the floor to end the first half and opened the second half with a 6-0 run to blow it open.

No. 19 Wake Forest 87, Navy 65

ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Craig Dawson scored 21 points, all on 3-pointers, and Wake Forest (12-3) never trailed.

Darius Songaila had 18 points and 12 rebounds, Taron Downey added 15 points, and Josh Howard 14 for Wake Forest.
