Wednesday, November 28

The Tulsa 66ers used a team effort to take down Texas in Sunday's fourth quarter. As a team, Tulsa went 7-for-9 from the field in the final quarter to outscore the Legends by eight.

One of the key contributors for Tulsa was guard Brady Morningstar. The Kansas product shot 3-for-4 from 3-point range in the fourth, including a clutch 3 to give Tulsa its first lead since the opening quarter and a go-ahead 3-pointer with 21 seconds left. He scored nine fourth-quarter points and 16 total.

Morningstar also made a memorable buzzer-beater at the end of the first quarter from past half court. Catch his half-court shot and more highlights from Sunday's game below:




Following Wednesday's practice, Tulsa66ers.com met up with Morningstar to talk about his performance on Sunday along with how the team is preparing for Friday's opponent - the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.

Tulsa Guard Brady Morningstar
On going 3-for-4 from 3-point range in Sunday's fourth quarter...
 “I was missing shots earlier in the game and my teammates told me, ‘Keep shooting. That’s what shooters do.’ They were finding me and I was getting open looks and doing what I was supposed to do and knocking them down. I’m thankful for my teammates for getting me in a position to make an open shot and I knocked it down.”
