ORU wins inaugural Southland Conference game

HAMMOND, La. — Damen Bell-Holter surpassed the 1,000-point plateau with a career-best 35 points as Oral Roberts won its first Southland Conference game 86-72 over Southeastern Louisiana in each team’s conference opener.

Bell-Holter entered with 978 points in his career and hit 12 of 18 from the field and 11 of 15 from the line while also grabbing 14 rebounds for his third double-double this year.
