OSU; Cincinnati Win 2010 Lane Furniture All-College Basketball Classic
Nation's Oldest Basketball Celebrates 75th Anniversary
OKLAHOMA CITY (December 18, 2010) — The 75th annual Lane Furniture® All-College Basketball
Classic, hosted by the Oklahoma City All Sports Association, added another successful chapter to its
storied history Saturday, as Oklahoma State knocked off Alabama, 68-60, and Cincinnati defeated
Oklahoma, 66-56, in front of 10,625 fans at the Oklahoma City Arena.
As the oldest basketball tournament in the world, the All-College is widely known for its high level of
excitement, and this year's edition was no different, as both games were decided by 10 points or less.
Oklahoma State faced Alabama in the "Pistol" Pete Maravich game, where the Cowboys moved to 10-1
with their eight-point win over the Crimson Tide.
"I grew up an OSU fan so I watched all of their games pretty much," said OSU guard Keiton Page. "I've
been to a couple of [All-College Classics] before I attended OSU."
Page, the leading scorer in the 2010 All-College Classic, helped OSU win its third-straight All-College title
and its fourth in the past five years.
The final game of the night, the Bill Russell game, pitted Oklahoma against undefeated Cincinnati.
Cincinnati continued its perfect season behind MVP Yancy Gates' 11 points and seven rebounds, as the
Bearcats moved to 10-0 on the year.
This 2010 Lane Furniture® All-College Basketball Classic All-Tournament Team features at least one
player from each team in the event, and a pair of OSU Cowboys.
The rich Oklahoma City tradition of the All-College now looks forward to its 76th year in 2011, as the Oklahoma City All Sports Association continues its mission to secure, promote, create, execute and host some of the top amateur athletic event in the state.
