Owens leads Oral Roberts past Omaha 83-75 for top 6 finish

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) Albert Owens scored 21 points, Austin Ruder added 17, Javan White contributed 14 points with 12 rebounds and Oral Roberts is assured a top six finish in the Summit League with Thursday's 83-75 win at Omaha.

Oral Roberts (11-20, 5-9) outrebounded Omaha 38-29, which was a factor in the Golden Eagles owning the paint, 46-36, and outscoring Omaha 16-7 on second-chance points.

Daniel Norl pulled Omaha to within 59-58 with 7:16 remaining but Sam Kearns answered with a 3 to spark a 14-2 run for the Golden Eagles and put the game away.

Owens was 9 of 14 from the floor with 11 points coming after halftime when Oral Roberts broke away from a 35-all tie. White scored 10 points in the second half. Kearns scored all 10 points after halftime.

Zach Jackson scored 26 points and Mitch Hahn scored a season-high 23 points for Omaha (9-20, 4-9).

If Oral Roberts finishes as a No. 5 or 6 seed, it would open tournament play Sunday, March 4.
