SOUTHLAND MEN'S BB: ORU drops Texas A&M-Corpus Christi

CORPUS CHRISTI — A strong inside game, led by Damen Bell-Holter's fifth double-double of the season, led Oral Roberts (9-8, 4-1) past Texas A&M-Corpus Christi (2-13, 1-4) 64-52 in south Texas, Thursday night.

Bell-Holter had a game-high 27 points on an 8-of-9 shooting effort, and had 13 rebounds as he scored 20 points for the fourth time in five games. Warren Niles overcame a cold start to score 14 points, while Shawn Glover added 12 for the Golden Eagles, who won their third-straight road game.

Will Nelson had 18 points and 10 rebounds for the Islanders, the only player in double-figures.

ORU dominated the paint with a 26-16 scoring advantage, and a 35-27 rebounding edge. Despite turning the ball over 15 times compared to the Islanders' 13, ORU made the most of the opportunities with a 21-4 advantage in points off turnovers.

The Golden Eagles shot 43.9 percent (18-41) for the game, the lowest of the nine victories this season, but held the Islanders to 35.8 percent (19-53), the third lowest percentage of the season.

"I thought we played really well in the second half until the final five or six minutes when we kind of put it on cruise control. In the first half we did a lot of good things, but we just couldn't make shots," said Coach Scott Sutton. "Warren had six of his best looks in a long time and just couldn't knock them down so instead of being up eight or 12 points we were up two. Damen was obviously tremendous all night."

Despite shooting just 2-of-8 from the field to start the game, ORU trailed by just two (6-4) more than five minutes into the game. A 3-pointer by Mike Manghum gave ORU its first lead of the game and after a quick back-and-forth, the inside game of Bell-Holter and Glover gave ORU a 16-10 lead, the largest for either team more than 13 minutes into the game.
