LANGSTON, Okla. (AP) â€” The U.S. Geological Survey has recorded four small earthquakes in Oklahoma.
No damage or injuries have been reported.
The USGS says two of the quakes registered a preliminary magnitude of 3.3. The first was recorded at 1:26 a.m. Sunday about nine miles northwest of Langston and the second was at 4:41 p.m. about two miles east of Perry.
A 3.2 magnitude quake was recorded at 4:32 a.m. seven miles southwest of Pawnee and 2.5 quake was recorded at 5:11 a.m. about 13 miles south of Medford.
Getting 18 points from Onyae Sims and shooting 49 percent from the field proved to be the difference for Collin County Community College in its 72-51 win over the Carl Albert State College Vikings on Thursday night at Southeastern Oklahoma State University's Bloomer Sullivan Fieldhouse.
The next game for the Vikings is at 8 p.m. Thursday against archrival Eastern Oklahoma State College at Mick Thompson Fieldhouse. The women's game will be at 6 p.m.

The Lions opened their Class B playoff run with a 60-18 victory over the Garber Wolverines on Friday night.

TALIHINA â€” The Talihina Golden Tigers got to the Class A state semifinals a season ago before losing to Ringling. They showed Friday night at Doc Robinson Stadium theyâ€™re poised to make such a run this postseason as they routed the Quapaw Wildcats 58-0 in the opening round of the playoffs.
The Golden Tigers (10-0) will entertain some more Wildcats, Class A's 10th-ranked Morrison Wildcats, at 7:30 p.m. next Friday in a second-round playoff match-up.
