Tulsa Knocks Off Austin, 96-87

TULSA, Okla., January 19, 2013 – The Tulsa 66ers outlasted the Austin Toros, 96-87, on Saturday at the SpiritBank Event Center as four Tulsa players scored over 15 points apiece.

NBA veteran Chris Quinn scored 21 points and dished out seven assists while fellow NBA vet Rasual Butler scored 20 points with four boards and three assists.

“Having those guys gives us extra confidence,” said Rajakovic. “They’re sharing their experience and knowledge with their teammates. At the same time, they’re very humble and ready to learn. They’re both very coachable.”

Dominique Sutton recorded his fifth double-double of the season with 16 points and 12 rebounds while Andy Rautins went 3-for-6 from 3-point range en route to 17 points. As a team, the 66ers shot 10-for-18 (.556) from behind the 3-point arc.

Tulsa (10-11) outrebounded Austin (12-10), 41-40, while collecting 18 assists and forcing 15 turnovers.

The 66ers return to action on Tuesday evening when they take on the Iowa Energy in Des Moines, Iowa. For more information, visit Tulsa66ers.com.
