I have seen all of the national tournament games the Bison have played since I joined the OBU staff in 1964 * a total of 41 games, of which we have won 31." OBU was 15-3 in Municipal Auditorium's tournament, with one national championship trophy and two runner-up trophies. Parrish has seen the glory years of OBU basketball and while he isn't making any predictions publicly, he likes the look of this year's team. "This experience also will be very satisfying because I have so much respect and admiration for coaches Tolin and (assistant coach Lance) Johnston and the 2001-02 Bison team," Parrish said. "The Bison have worked hard and played very well this year, and they have been wonderful representatives of OBU. I have seen all but two of their games this year and I know that their play has been very consistent. This has been a season of significant achievement."
