Golden Eagles Turn Forfeit Into A Victory

Posted: Updated:

After getting the news that the NCAA was waiving a bylaw that would have forced Oral Roberts to forfeit two conference games this week, they went out and got a big win in one of those games.

ABILENE, Texas (AP) - Shawn Glover scored 25 points, on 10-of-16 shooting, to lead Oral Roberts over Abilene Christian 82-59 on Thursday.

Oral Roberts (9-8, 3-1 Southland Conference) shot 54 percent from the floor, including 6 of 14 from beyond the arc, and out-rebounded Abilene Christian 34-23. Korey Billbury chipped in with 13 points.

The Wildcats (6-11, 0-3) were led by Julian Edmonson with 26 points, his season-high, while Parker Wentz added 11.

The teams were tied at halftime at 39 after Oral Roberts scored the final six points before intermission.

The second half was all Oral Roberts, as the Golden Eagles outscored Abilene Christian by 23 after the break, using a 10-2 run as play resumed, breaking out to a nine point lead. A 19-4 stretch later in the frame extended the lead to 22 to all but bury ACU.
