    TULSA, Okla. -- Dominique Morrison scored 30 points Monday night as Oral Roberts won its third straight game with a 62-56 victory over SMU in a consolation round of the NIT Season Tip-Off.

    Morrison sank 10 of 16 shots, including three 3-pointers, and went 7 of 10 at the line for the Golden Eagles (3-2). Steven Roundtree added 11 points, and Michael Craion had nine rebounds.

    Robert Nyakundi paced the Mustangs (2-3) with 16 points. London Giles and Jalen Jones scored 12 apiece, and Jeremiah Samarrippas had 11.

    Morrison's jump shot gave the Golden Eagles their largest lead at 30-13 with 1:16 to go before halftime.

    But the Mustangs pared the gap to single figures at 32-34 on Nyakundi's 3-pointer with 17:18 left. They got within one four times, the last at 49-48 with 4:47 remaining, but never took the lead.
