TULSA, Oklahoma -- Two days after setting a school record with 17 3-pointers, the Oral Roberts women's basketball topped that feat in a 99-72 win over UMKC. The Golden Eagles hit 18 shots from behind the arc against the Kangaroos, 15 of which came from Jaci Bigham, Georgia Jones, and Kevi Luper.

Luper had another big game Monday, scoring 27 points and grabbing 12 rebounds. The freshman guard has been impressive this season, earning her third-consecutive Summit League Women’s Basketball Player of the Week award.

Other strong offensive performances came from Bigham, who totaled 17 points and seven assists. Forward Jordan Pyle posted a perfect field goal percentage (6-for-6), while Jones recorded 15 points for ORU, including five 3-point shots from behind the arch.

The Golden Eagles (6-2) are now 2-0 in Summit League play and will tip off against the Tulsa Golden Hurricane Dec. 12 at 2 p.m. in Tulsa.
