    TULSA, Okla. -- Dominique Morrison scored 16 of his 26 points in the second half to lead Oral Roberts past Texas Tech 72-56 on Thursday night.

    Jordan Tolbert led the Red Raiders (5-5) with 21 points and nine rebounds.

    Oral Roberts was not seriously threatened in the second half, but Texas Tech cut its deficit to 58-49 on Jaron Nash's layup with 6:44 left. Niles countered with a 3-pointer, and Morrison followed with a three-point play and another 3-pointer for a 68-49 lead.

    Morrison made two free throws to give Oral Roberts its largest lead, 71-51, with 1:15 remaining.

    The Golden Eagles rode a 19-2 first-half run, including seven points by Damen Bell-Holter, to a 37-20 halftime lead en route to their first-ever victory over Texas Tech.
