OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Texas Tech coach Bob Knight says he likes Oklahoma and has for many years. He was asked Thursday night if Oklahoma City is doing a good job as host of the Big 12 tournament and said both his wife and father are from Oklahoma.
And Knight says he attended an OU football game at Pittsburgh in 1953 and has liked Oklahoma since.

But the coach also took a dig at OU in light of recent spats. One involved a timekeeping mistake in a 2003 game that OU won in overtime. And he wanted OU's Longar Longar suspended for the season after an apparent inadvertent elbow injured a Tech player this year.

Knight said there are ``some things'' about the state that have displeased him from time to time.
