TULSA, Okla.-ORU took the lead with 14:10 to go in the first half and never relinquished it as they downed Texas Tech 72-56 Thursday night in front of 8,064 fans inside the Mabee Center. It was the largest home crowd for ORU since the Tulsa game on January 20, 2010 when the Mabee Center held 9,303 fans. ORU (9-4, 1-0) scored 72 points for the first time since November 22 against Florida International and became just the third program in school history to win at least nine games before Christmas (1969-70, 1989-90). On the defensive side, the Golden Eagles held a team below 60 for the third time in the last four games. “I’m obviously happy that we won the game,” said Coach Scott Sutton. “I thought we played really well, especially in the first half. Second half, I give Texas Tech a lot of credit. One thing about Billy (Gillispie’s) teams is that they are never going to give up, they are going to keep playing hard and playing tough and I think we all saw that in the second half. Any time you can beat; number one a Big 12 team and number two a Billy Gillispie team you have to be pretty happy about it.” Despite getting out-shot for the game, ORU held as large as a 20-point lead late in the game as Warren Niles and Dominique Morrison put the game out of reach. Niles finished 4-for-6 from 3-point range en route to 16 points, while Morrison had eight-straight points down the stretch and led all scorers with 26 points, his fourth 20-point game of the season. Damen Bell-Holter continued to control the paint with 11 points and 10 rebounds for his third double-double of the year. Texas Tech, who shot 50 percent (23-46) for the game to ORU’s 44 percent (20-45), was led by Jordan Tolbert, who dropped 21 points and had nine rebounds. Robert Lewandowski added 10 points. The Red Raiders ended the game with a 29-25 rebounding advantage, but it was the 22 points off turnovers, most of which came in the first half, that pushed ORU past the Big 12 opponent. ORU also got to the free throw line 32 times, converting 23 of the trips, the most free throws made and attempted this season.

KANSAS CITY, Mo.-The three active Kansas City players on the Oral Roberts roster combined to score 50 of the teams 72 points and had 26 of 41 ORU rebounds in a 72-65 victory over UMKC in front of 1,504 fans, Wednesday night at the Swinney Rec Center. ORU (10-4, 2-0) shot 51 percent for the game, despite going 0-11 from 3-point range. K.C. native Dominique Morrison led all scorers with 28 points, just off his season-best 30-point effort against SMU, adding nine rebounds as well. Michael Craion—also from Kansas City—had a career-best 16 rebounds and 14 points for his second double-double of the season. The third K.C. player, Roderick Pearson, added eight points and three assists on the night. The Golden Eagles got to the free throw line 26 times and hit 22 of them (84.6 percent). It was the third time to shoot better than 80 percent from the line this season, and the fourth time they have made at least 22, doing so in back-to-back games with 23 made free throws against Texas Tech. UMKC (7-8, 1-2) hit 10 3-pointers in the game, led by Reggie Chamberlain’s four treys. Chamberlain led the team with 17 points, while Thomas Staton had 15 points and four steals. Estan Tyler and Kirk Korver each had 10 points in the losing effort. The Kangaroos converted 19 ORU turnovers into 17 points, and not surprisingly with the zero-spot from behind the arc, ORU had a 34-22 advantage in the paint. ORU shot 57.7 percent (15-26) from the field in the first half, despite going 0-7 from 3-point range. It was the highest first half percentage since hitting 62 percent in the first half against UTSA. Free throws helped ORU salt away the game as the Golden Eagles won their second-straight road game and first conference game on the road this season.

VERMILLION, S.D.-Led by Dominique Morrison’s 27 points and Roderick Pearson’s 12 assists, Oral Roberts (11-4, 3-0) led by as many as 18 and held on to beat South Dakota (5-8, 0-4) by a score of 79-67, Friday night in front of 1,689 fans at the DakotaDome. The 12 assists doubled Pearson’s career high, previously at six, and tied him for 10th in the single-game record books. Morrison hit the 20-point mark for the third-consecutive game and sixth time this season. Warren Niles and Steven Roundtree each had 16 points in the contest. The Golden Eagles had 25 assists on 30 field goals, and had just 11 turnovers. ORU shot a sizzling 53.6 percent for the game, including 10-19 from the 3-point line, after not hitting a 3-pointer in the previous game against UMKC. It is the second-straight game in which ORU has topped 50 percent from the field. It was the second-best shooting percentage this season, only behind the 55 percent posted against FIU. Allen Saint-Gelais led the Coyotes with 20 points, hitting 8-of-11 shots on the night, while Louie Krogman has 14. South Dakota had six steals and converted 10 fast break points, and got to the line 17 times, hitting 15 of them. ORU managed to get to the line just 14 times and hit nine, marking the first time since Gonzaga that an opponent got to the free throw line more than ORU. “I’m happy we won, and any time you win a road game at a conference place you have to be happy,” said Head Coach Scott Sutton. “I’m not pleased with how we gave up the big lead. That’s been a recurring theme for us and it’s really disappointing. You have to give South Dakota credit, they hit some shots and got back in the game, but we haven’t been able to put teams away and it could cost us.”
