Three minutes later and trailing by 11, the Kangaroos scored seven unanswered – capped by a three-pointer from Elise O'Connor – to cut the lead to four points. However, ORU responded with a 7-2 run of its own to push the lead back to nine points.

Holding a 10-point lead at the with 5:55 left to play, Oral Roberts strung together a 15-5 run over the next two minutes to take a 77-58 lead and essentially put the game out of reach.

Luper finished with a game-high 31 points and five steals, while Pyle notched 14 points, six boards and four steals in the Golden Eagles' seventh conference win of the season.

Kim Nezianya turned in a double-double for the Kangaroos, finishing with 14 points and 15 rebounds. Damon Hall-Jones also finished with 14 points, but only managed to grab six rebounds.

Oral Roberts will try to make it five in a row at 7:05 p.m. Monday at home against the South Dakota Coyotes.
