TULSA 66ERS FALL TO TEXAS LEGENDS, 94-78

TULSA, Okla., Feb. 5, 2012— Jerome Dyson poured in a game-high 30 points, Marcus Lewis recorded his 20th double-double of the season with 10 points and 11 rebounds and Ryan Reid notched four points, seven boards and two blocked shots, but the Tulsa 66ers (15-14) fell at home 94-78 to the Texas Legends (13-16) Sunday afternoon.

Also scoring in double figures for Tulsa was Larry Owens off the bench with 10.

Offensively, the 66ers posted 19 assists on 34 made buckets, led by six dishes from Owens and five from Brady Morningstar.

The 66ers defense forced 15 turnovers and created 10 steals, led by Dyson and Robert Vaden with three and two thefts, respectively.

“The Legends are a veteran squad and I think they showed that tonight,” 66ers head coach Dale Osbourne said. “We got ourselves into a hole early and it was hard to recover. We have to be more consistent with our energy, and I expect our guys to bounce back on the upcoming road trip.”

Leading Texas in scoring was Sean Williams with 22 points and Ramon Dyer added a double-double with 15 points and 14 rebounds.

The 66ers return to the court this Wednesday, Feb. 8, when they travel to Los Angeles to take on the D-Fenders at 9 p.m. CT.
