ORU Holds Off Missouri State, 68-63

Posted: Updated:

Warren Niles scored 19 points to lead Oral Roberts to a 68-63 win over Missouri State Wednesday night at the Mabee Center.

The Golden Eagles (5-2) trailed 11-9 early before Dominique Morrison hit a three-pointer to spark a 13-0 run. ORU would lead by as many as 13 points in the second half before the Bears began chipping away at the lead.

MSU would get as close as three points on Anthony Downing's 3-pointer with eight seconds left. But, Niles hit a pair of free throws to seal the win moments later.

Joining Niles in double figures was Morrison with 13, Roderick Pearson with 11 and Michael Craion with ten. Steven Roundtree led the way with a dozen rebounds.

Kyle Weems led Missouri State (4-1) with 22 points.

ORU returns to action Saturday at home with the first Summit League game of the year against Southern Utah at 7:05 p.m.
