And on Monday night the Bulldogs and Sooners went into overtime again, but this time Tech Nation would feel the thrill of victory as Tech shocked the Sooners, 102-98, inside Lloyd Noble Center.

The Lady Techsters Basketball Team donated five basketballs autographed by the players. Boys and Girls Club brought us some extra gifts they had received, for our children.
