January 28, 2012 • Tulsa, Okla. (Mabee Center)

TULSA, Okla.-Both teams shot better than 55 percent and combined for 25 3-pointers, but Oral Roberts emerged victorious, taking down Oakland 93-86 in front of a Mabee Center crowd of 9,005. It was the largest home crowd of the season, and second this season only to the 9,678 who watch ORU take down then eighth-ranked Xavier. With the victory, ORU (18-4, 10-0) has won its 17th regular season conference game in a row, the second longest streak in Summit League history, only to Oakland’s record 20 games. The Golden Eagles have also registered the regular season sweep over Oakland (11-11, 5-5), after the Grizzlies took all three meetings from ORU last year. The Golden Eagles also have 11 consecutive victories this season, tying the fourth-longest winning streak in school history at the Division I level. Warren Niles hit a career-high seven treys for ORU en route to a team and season high 28 points. Dominique Morrison added 24 points hitting both 3-point attempts, while Michael Craion had 14 points and seven rebounds. Roderick Pearson had 11 points and a game-high eight assists. Adding to the cause off the bench was Steven Roundtree, who had nine points and a game-high eight rebounds, including four offensive boards. Reggie Hamilton scored a game-high 30 points including seven of the Grizzlies’ 15 3-pointers, while Travis Bader added 17 points and Drew Valentine had 15. The 15 treys hit by the Grizzlies was one off the opponent record of 16, set by Louisville in January of 1993. OU hit 60 percent (9-15) in the first half from beyond the arc and ended the game with a 56.6 percent mark (30-53) for the game with a 53.6 percent (15-28) effort from 3-point range. ORU shot an incredible 73 percent (19-26) in the first half, the hottest half offensively since the first game against Oakland when they shot 77.8 percent (21-27) in the second half. Despite the hot-shooting, ORU found themselves down one at the break after a long 3-pointer by Hamilton. “First of all I thought that was as good of a game as I’ve ever seen in the Mabee Center and I’ve been here almost 17 years,” said Coach Scott Sutton.“I thought both teams played at such a high level, especially on the offensive end. Guys were making shots, guys were playing hard. We saw a great performance out of Reggie Hamilton. It’s a shame some of these guys don’t get the recognition nationally that they deserve like Reggie Hamilton, Nate Wolters and Dominique Morrison. You hear coaches say this but I thought it was a shame that someone had to lose. I thought both teams played well enough to win.”

TULSA, Okla.-Mikey Manghum hit six of his seven shots, including all six 3-pointers for a career-high 18 points, while Michael Craion added 18 points and 10 rebounds in Oral Roberts’ 9764 blowout win over South Dakota, Thursday night. The victory extends ORU’s home winning streak to 19, overall winning streak to 12, and regular season conference winning streak to 18, two short of tying the Summit League Record. ORU (19-4, 11-0) had five players score in double figures, with Steven Roundtree adding 17 to Manghum’s career night and Craion’s team-high 12th career double-double. Warren Niles and Dominique Morrison had 11 and 10, respectively, despite South Dakota’s (7-13, 2-9) drastic measures to keep them from scoring. “At the beginning of the game they were playing a triangle-two (defense) to take me and Warren out of the game,” said Morrison.“As a team everyone else has to step up and make shots and that’s what they did. It ended up costing them because Mikey hit six three’s and everyone else played better.” The Golden Eagles shot 34-60 (56.7 percent) for the game and held USD to just a 25-55 (45.5 percent) shooting effort, while also forcing 24 Coyote turnovers and turning those into 37 points. ORU also dominated in the paint with a 36-26 rebounding edge and a 44-24 advantage in the paint. ORU posted 21 assists in the game, with Manghum leading the charge with four. All nine players who suited up for ORU saw at least 11 minutes of action and recorded at least one assist, including three by Robert Aery, who set career highs in points (6), field goals (2) and 3-pointers (2) in the game. The 97 points matches the highest point total of the season, previously hit in a 97-75 victory against South Dakota State and is the second 90-plus game in a row. The 33-point victory is the largest in a conference game since beating UMKC by 35 (89-54) on January 22, 2009. “Very, very proud of Mikey Manghum,” said Coach Scott Sutton.“Obviously their game plan was to take Warren and Dominique out of the game and they did a pretty good job but Mikey came in and I just enjoyed watching him make shot after shot after shot. I think this is the most unselfish team we’ve had. It says a lot when you have five guys who were picked as first or second team all-league players. For those guys to be able to play together and not have any egos and not worry about who is scoring points says a lot about them. That’s a big reason we have won 12 straight games.”

TULSA, Okla.-UMKC put together a second-half run and cut a 17-point lead down to two, but Oral Roberts (20-4, 12-0) held on for the 77-67 victory, becoming just the fourth team in the country to register 20 Division I wins this season, joining Syracuse, Kentucky and Creighton. The Golden Eagles also stretched their home winning streak to 20, overall winning streak to 13 and their conference winning streak to 19, one short of tying the Summit League record (Oakland-20). The victory came in front of a Mabee Center crowd of 6,850 on Hall of Fame night as ORU inducted three new members into its Athletics Hall of Fame; Tim Gill (Men’s Basketball), Prince Mumba (Track) and Jeff Stallings (Baseball). With a 20-4 record, ORU has eclipsed the number of wins last year (1916), and reached 20 wins for the 18th time in school history and the sixth time under Coach Scott Sutton. The Golden Eagles have reached 20 wins in January for the first time since the 1990-91 season when ORU also reached 20 wins on January 28, doing so as a member of the NAIA. It is the first time in school history in which ORU has reached 20 wins in the month of January as a Division I program. After being held without a shot for the first 25 minutes of the game on Thursday night against South Dakota, Dominique Morrison scored early and often on Saturday, hitting 10 of his 14 shots, including both 3-point attempts, for a game-high 28 points. Roderick Pearson scored 13 points, 11 of which came in the second half, while Michael Craion had 11 points and a team-high five assists. Damen Bell-Holter accounted for 10 rebounds and seven points as ORU held a slight 28-23 edge on the boards. UMKC (9-15, 3-9) was led by Trinity Hall’s 17 points as the Kangaroos put four players in double figures, including Reggie Chamberlain (16), Thomas Staton (15) and Kirk Korver (13). Despite shooting 60 percent for the game, and 71 percent (5-7) from 3-point range, the Golden Eagles found themselves in a dog-fight as they turned the ball over 17 times, 10 of which came in the second half.
