THIBODEAUX, La. — ORU turned the ball over again on the ensuing inbounds play, and Emani White of Nicholls hit two free throws with four seconds left the stretch the lead to three. The Golden Eagles had one final opportunity to send the game to overtime, but Bigham’s 30-foot heave at the buzzer was short and ORU came up on the losing end.
ORU returns home for the first time in 36 days when they host Northwestern State on Thursday, January 10. Game time at the Mabee Center is scheduled for 5 pm CT.
