CANCUN, Mexico — Shawn Glover scored 24 points, seven in the final 1:02, as Oral Roberts squeaked by Georgia Southern 67-65 on Tuesday in the Cancun Challenge.

Glover made 10 of his 18 shots for Oral Roberts (3-3) and Korey Billbury added 21, eight rebounds. Oral Roberts made one of its 14 3-pointers, but its defense forced 13 turnovers.
