Oklahoma sports report

It's been over a month since our last Oklahoma sports report.  Not that there hasn't been news to report, especially now that the Oklahoma City Thunder have advanced to the second round of the NBA playoffs, where they are facing the Memphis Grizzlies.  Last night the Thunder won game 2 of their series by a final score of 111-102, led by All-Stars Kevin Durant with 26 and Russell Westbrook with 24.  The series is tied 1-1.

But that wasn't the biggest Oklahoma sports story of last night.  No, the biggest story involves Roman Owen, coach of the women's basketball team at Mid-America Christian University in Oklahoma City.  Coach Owen attended the Thunder game last night and walked away $20,000 richer after nailing a half-court shot between the third and fourth quarters.  Even Kevin Durant took notice, posting a picture of himself with Coach Owen on his Facebook page.  Enjoy the video.
