Sam Houston State vs Oral Roberts

Sam Houston St. 58, Oral Roberts 55

  •  

KATY, Texas (AP) - Paul Baxter scored 13 points, and sixth-seeded Sam Houston State rallied in the second half to knock off third-seeded Oral Roberts 58-55 on Thursday night and advance to the Southland Conference tournament semifinals.

Terrance Motley added 12 points for the Bearkats (17-16), who allowed only 19 second-half points. Sam Houston State will face No. 2 seed Northwestern State on Friday with a spot in the final on the line.

Warren Niles had 19 points for the Golden Eagles (18-14), and Korey Billbury chipped in 12.

Oral Roberts shot 60 percent from the floor in the first half en route to a 36-29 halftime lead, but SHSU pulled ahead in the second half behind hot 3-point shooting. The Bearkats led 57-51 with under a minute to play.

SHSU nearly coughed up that lead, but a key Oral Roberts turnover with 9 seconds left helped the Bearkats secure the victory.
