    TULSA, Okla. -- Dominique Morrison scored 17 points Saturday night to help Oral Roberts clinch a share of the Summit League championship with a 61-51 victory over Western Illinois.

    Roderick Pearson and Steven Roundtree added 12 points each and Michael Craion 11 for the Golden Eagles (23-5, 15-1), who won their 22nd straight home game.

    Ceola Clark sank five 3-pointers and scored 23 points to pace the Leathernecks (13-11, 7-8), who have lost three in a row.

    Oral Roberts, which swept the season series, used a 7-0 run late in the first half to craft a 25-19 edge at intermission.

    But Clark erupted in the second half. He connected on four 3-pointers in a span of 5:01 to pull Western Illinois within 37-35. When he hit his fifth, with 9:01 left, it gave the Leathernecks a 41-40 lead.

    But Damon Bell-Holter replied with a layup to put the Golden Eagles ahead to stay.
