NORMAN, Okla. - Former Oklahoma great Wayman Tisdale succumbed to cancer earlier today and is being remembered fondly from coast-to-coast. ESPN Classic is honoring his life by replaying two of his memorable OU games tonight at 7 p.m., CDT and 9 p.m., CDT.

The first game will be the Oklahoma vs. Louisiana Tech game from March 21, 1985. Tisdale hit a six-foot jumper with three seconds remaining in overtime to give Oklahoma its victory in the Midwest Regional Semifinal NCAA Tournament Game.

The second game will be the Jan. 28, 1983 game against Oklahoma State in which both Tisdale and David Little scored 22 points to forge an 81-80 Sooner victory.
