    TULSA, Okla. -- Dominique Morrison's double-double helped Oral Roberts run its home winning streak to 23 games with a 67-61 victory over Akron on Saturday.

    Morrison led the Summit League regular-season champion Golden Eagles (25-5) with 16 points and 12 rebounds. Damen Bell-Holter scored 15 points and Warren Niles 12 in the BracketBusters victory.

    Alex Abreu's 16 points led the Zips (19-8), whose eight-game winning streak ended. Nikola Cvetinovic added 11.

    In winning its fifth in a row, Oral Roberts piled up a 28-13 lead with 4:42 left in the first half. The Golden Eagles were up 33-22 at intermission.

    Cvetinovic's layup pulled the Zips within 50-49 with 8:16 to play. But Oral Roberts responded with a 10-2 run built around two baskets by Morrison to go ahead 60-51 with 4:51 to play.

    The Golden Eagles outrebounded the Zips 41-26 and outshot them 46 percent to 41 percent.
