ORAL ROBERTS DePAUL (11-3)

ORU wins second half, 47-36, but can’t climb out of 30-point hole

DePaul hits 13 three-pointers, pressures Golden Eagles into 22 turnovers

LINCOLN, Neb. - Oral Roberts University fought hard until the final whistle but could not overcome Nebraska on Thursday night at the Devaney Center in an 80-67 loss to the Cornhuskers. Kevi Luper led the Golden Eagles (36) with 22 points.

CHICAGO - Oral Roberts University turned the ball over 22 times and fell victim to a hot-shooting squad from DePaul University, 97-74, on Friday night at McGrathPhillips Arena. ORU’s record is now 3-7 on the season. DePaul (11-3) had six players in double-figures, led by Anna Martin’s 19 points. Katherine Harry added 16 points and 11 rebounds, while Chanise Jenkins added 12 points and 10 assists.

Nebraska (9-3) led the contest at the halftime break, 4420, before ORU won the second half, 47-36. Jordan Hooper paced the Cornhuskers with 33 points on the night, including five three-point field goals. Lindsey Moore added 15 points and eight assists.

Kevi Luper fought through foul trouble to lead the Golden Eagles with 17 points. Bernadett Balla added 12 points off the bench, while Christian Key added 10.

Luper wasn’t the only Golden Eagle to shine offensively. Bernadett Balla poured in 17 points, while Jaci Bigham and Christian Key each scored nine. All nine of Key’s points came in the second half. Hooper came out of the gates hot, scoring the first seven points of the game. Her first three-pointer of the night gave the Huskers a 7-0 lead at the 17:21 mark. ORU came back with a mini-rally. A Luper basket cut Nebraska’s lead to 13-10 with 12:58 to play.

Kevi Luper’s 22-point night kept the Golden Eagles close, but ORU fell to 21st-ranked Nebraska five days before Christmas

74 97

(3-7)

The Blue Demons hit 13 three-point field goals, a season-high for an ORU opponent, and shot 46.8% as a team. Their 97-point output is a high watermark for a Golden Eagle foe in 2012-13. The home team took their first significant lead midway through the opening half. A 6-0 run, capped by two Brittany Hrynko free throws, gave DePaul a 23-14 lead with 11:16 on the clock.

Christian Key and the Golden Eagles shot 40.3% from the floor but fell to DePaul thanks in part to 22 turnovers

But the Golden Eagles would not keep pace with Nebraska for long. The home team scored the next ten points, with a Moore jumper pushing the advantage to 23-10 at the 8:28 mark. The Huskers closed the half on a 9-1 run to build a 24-point halftime lead.

Turnovers continued to plague ORU and the Blue Demons took advantage, turning them into easy baskets. A 12-0 DePaul run late in the half was punctuated by a Jenkins bucket in transition, giving the home side a 46-24 lead with 3:02 left in the half.

ORU came alive offensively midway through the second half. A Bigham runner at the 7:58 mark ended an 11-4 ORU rally and cut Nebraska’s edge to 69-47.

DePaul took their biggest lead with 8:54 left in the game, as Hrynko scored a deuce to push the score to 85-49.

Later, the Golden Eagles scored eight straight points, with Key draining a three-ball to make the score 77-61 with 3:10 left. ORU scored the game’s final six points and ended the game down by 13 after trailing by as much as 30 early in the second half.

ORU played their best basketball down the stretch, closing strong for the second straight game. Misti Cussen’s team ended the game on a 25-12 run, cutting the deficit to 23 points on a Luper basket in the game’s closing seconds. Official Basketball Box Score -- Game Totals -- Final Statistics
