TU takes down Rice yet again

State hoops briefs

HOUSTON — Rashad Smith scored 18 points as Tulsa continued its dominance of Rice with a 66-56 win on Saturday, its 15th straight in the series.

James Woodard added 15 points and Brandon Swannegan had 10 for the Golden Hurricane (11-12, 6-3 Conference USA), who have beaten Rice by an average of 13.1 points per contest during the streak.

Tulsa took its first lead of the game late in the first half, ending the half with seven straight points to take a 27-23 lead into the break. Rice (7-16, 2-8) cut its deficit to 57-53 with 1:11 to play but Tulsa made two layups and five free throws in the final minute to seal the win.

Max Guercy scored 17 points and Austin Ramljak had 11 for Rice, which shot just 36.7 percent from the field.

ORU breezes past SE Louisiana

TULSA — Shawn Glover and Korey Billbury scored 21 points each with Glover adding 11 rebounds in leading Oral Roberts to a 71-54 victory over Southeastern Louisiana on Saturday night.

Bobby Word added 16 points for Oral Roberts, which has rebounded with three straight wins after losing four-straight prior.

Oral Roberts (12-12, 6-5, Southland Conference) secured a 33-18 lead at the break that proved too much for the Lions to overcome after shooting only 33 percent. The Lions allowed Oral Roberts 25 points from the line in 31 attempts, while scoring only 8 free throws on their end.

The Golden Eagles led by as many as 20 in the second period and allowed SE Louisiana to get no closer than nine before breaking away again.

Dre Evans scored 13 points and Onochie Ochie notched 12 for SE Louisiana (9-13, 4-7), losers of five of their past six games.
