NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma's old McCasland Field House wasn't quite the way Alvan Adams remembered it. Just the chance to see another basketball game played in the gym where he starred was a unique opportunity.
The Sooners beat Central Oklahoma 94-66 on Wednesday night in an exhibition at the gym they called home from 1928 to 1975.
McCasland's close coincided with the end of Adams' superlative career, and he had a career-high 43 points and grabbed 25 rebounds in what had been the final game ever to be played in the building on March 5, 1975.
Adams and a dozen other Sooners who played during the Field House's final years in the 1970s were honored at halftime.
Oklahoma will play a regular-season game at McCasland on Dec. 31, against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.
