ORU Women Dominates Islanders

Posted: Updated:
Corpus Christi, Texas -

Junior Christian Key scored a career-high 21 points as Oral Roberts overcame a rocky first half to dominate Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, 58-41, on Thursday night.

Key was 8-13 from the field and 5-7 from 3-point range. The career-high performance is the third straight for the Tulsa native after she scored 15 points in a win over Northwestern State on Jan. 10 and 20 in a victory over Stephen F. Austin on Jan. 12.

The victory, combined with Sam Houston State's 64-48 win over Central Arkansas, moves ORU into a four-way tie for first place in the Southland Conference standings. Those three teams, along with Lamar, all sit at 4-1 through five conference games.

Sarah Shelton added 11 points and seven rebounds for the Golden Eagles (7-8, 4-1), while Jaci Bigham added nine points and seven assists.

The Islanders (1-15, 0-5) were led by Imani Dunn, who entered the game with just three total points on the season but scored 13 on Thursday night.

ORU shot 38.6 percent from the floor, including a 51.9 percent clip in the second half, while A&M-Corpus Christi shot just 29.5 percent and turned the ball over 24 times.
