Eduardo Najera's (NAH'-heh-rah) slam
dunk of an alley-oop pass at the beginning of the championship game
against California may have been indicative of what was to come.

Oklahoma defeated Cal 75-to-58 to win the Top of the World
Classic in Fairbanks, Alaska tonight.

The undefeated 3-and-oh Sooners were powered by Najera's 23
points and eight rebounds. Twice Najera swatted away easy lay-ups
to stymie Cal's attempts to rally in the second half.

California tied the game 38-to-38 early in the second half, but
Oklahoma scored 15 unanswered points to take a 61-to-44 lead with
7:54 to play.

Vander Laan led Cal with 23 points. Oklahoma held the Bear's
star forward Sean Lampley to nine points.
