Area college basketball roundup

Men

ORU 69, DBU 55 — Shawn Glover scored 20 points on Saturday and Corbin Byford added 15 as Oral Roberts beat Division II Dallas Baptist.

Adrion Webber opened the game with a 3-pointer and Oral Roberts (6-6) led until 12:27, when Jonathan Perry made a layup and Dallas Baptist (4-6) led 15-13. ORU went in front 20-19 on a layup by Byford and pulled away, scoring nine unanswered points to lead 35-24 at halftime.

The Golden Eagles extended their lead to 39-26 on two quick layups by Drew Wilson and pulled away with short scoring bursts to lead by 16 points at 5:45. Dallas Baptist pulled to within 10 points on a layup by Perry, but could get no closer.

TCU 70. TULSA 58 – Kyan Anderson posted his second straight 20-point game to help TCU overcome a 10-point second-half deficit in a victory over visiting Tulsa Saturday.

Tulsa (4-8) managed just 22 points after intermission against TCU’s pesky zone defense, and made just three baskets over the final eight minutes.

TCU (8-3) took the lead for good courtesy of a 20-4 run over an eight-minute span. It started with an Anderson bucket at the 16:20 mark and turned a 43-33 deficit into a 53-47 advantage.

It was the second nonconference win of the season for TCU over Tulsa, which picked up a 72-65 victory on Nov. 29 at the Great Alaska Shootout. That had snapped a five-game losing streak to the Golden Hurricanes.

Women

OSU 68, GA. TECH 60 — Liz Donohoe scored 27 points to lead No. 13 Oklahoma State past Georgia Tech on Saturday.

The Cowgirls (10-0) got 15 points from Tiffany Bias, while Kendra Suttles chipped in with nine points and nine rebounds.

Georgia Tech (8-3) was led by Tyaunna Marshall’s 14 points and 10 rebounds. Kaela Davis and Sydney Wallace both had 13 points in the loss.

Oklahoma State shot over 45 percent from the floor, including 5 of 16 from beyond the arc, while limiting the Yellow Jackets to just 31 percent shooting and 16.7 percent (4 of 24) on 3-pointers.

OSU broke out to a 10-point intermission lead as Georgia Tech couldn’t get anything going on offense, scoring just 24 first-half points on 8 of 36 shooting.

Tech held a 17-3 bench scoring advantage, but went 2 of 11 in the second half on 3-point attempts and couldn’t cut into the Cowgirls’ lead.

MARIST 76, OU 69 – Sydney Coffey and Casey Dulin each scored four points in the final 33 seconds to give Marist an upset win over No. 20 Oklahoma Saturday.

Emma O’Connor drilled a 3-pointer and followed it with a layup to give Marist (7-4) the lead, 53-51 with under 10 minutes left.

The Sooners tied the game on a pair of free throws by Gioya Carter with 2:38 left, but Dulin found Leanne Ockenden for a layup with 1:17 left and followed that with a layup of her own and added a pair of free throws to give the Red Foxes a six-point advantage with :24 left.

Aaryn Ellenberg’s jumper cut the Marist lead to four, 72-68, but Coffey answered with a layup and closed the scoring with a pair of free throws.
