(Enid-AP) -- Former Oklahoma State star Martin Lewis was playing again in Oklahoma, but not for the Cowboys.

After spending two years in the N-B-A playing for Toronto and other leagues, Lewis is now playing for the Cagerz of the United States Basketball League. Lewis stirred up controversy when he passed up playing the 1995-1996 season at Oklahoma State and bolted for the N-B-A draft. From the N-B-A, he played in the International Basketball Association and played Continental Basketball League.

He signed with the Salina, Kansas team in March and helped beatthe Oklahoma Storm 119-to-105 Sunday.

Lewis says he doesn't believe he got a fair shot in the N-B-A. But he says he's satisfied with what's happened. He says he only looks forward.
