TULSA, Okla. (AP) Freshman Ben Uzoh scores 18 points and Tulsa forces Oral Roberts into 24 turnovers and 32 percent shooting in a surprising 75-57 rout Tuesday night.

ORU made just 2 of 14 3-point shots and has now hit just 9 of 59 in three games since upsetting then 3rd-ranked Kansas on November 15th.

TU moved to 4-1 and snapped a three-game losing streak against its cross-town rival. TU took back the Mayor's Cup in a raucous post-game celebration.

Senior Darold Crow scored 14 points, point guard Brett McDade had 9 points and 4 assists and 10 players scored for the deep Golden Hurricane.

Center Caleb Green led ORU with 19 points and 10 rebounds, but most of his points came late and he had 8 turnovers before fouling out.

Ken Tutt, expected to be ORU' other primary scorer this season, finished with 9 points on 3-11 shooting.

ORU fell to 3-2.
