USAO Runs Past Chaps 78-68

LUBBOCK, Texas University of Science & Arts of Oklahoma used 13 second-half offensive rebounds and a 30-6 second half run to turn a 12-point deficit into a 12-point lead, as they went on to hand Lubbock Christian University their first home loss with a 78-68 win Saturday afternoon at Rip Griffin Center.

Leading 38-29 to start the second half, LCU added to their lead with a three-pointer by Kenny Hewitt for a 41-29 lead.  Jorge Parra started the 30-6 run with a pair of field goals for USAO, and his second came following the first Drovers offensive rebound of the half to set the tone for the game's remainder.  Mixed in the big run for USAO was four three-point field goals by Tim Nelson, who finished 6-of-12 beyond the arch in the game.  He finished with a game high 27 points.

LCU was unable to get within an eight-point deficit following the USAO run.  Hewitt, who led LCU with 15 points and seven rebounds, fouled out with 4:43 remaining.  The Chaps also had Douglas Williams finish with 14 points and Justin Tatum contributed a career-high 12 points.  USAO, who shot 50.9% (29-of-57) in the game, out-rebounded LCU 43-27 and 17 of the rebounds for the Drovers were offensive.  Rashaad Singleton had a double-double with 13 points and 11 rebounds.  Parra had five of the 17 offensive boards.

The Chaps drop to 8-5 with the loss and 3-4 in Sooner Athletic Conference play.  USAO improves to 7-6 overall and 4-3 in the conference.  LCU, now 6-1 at home, will hit the road Thursday with a SAC contest at Oklahoma Baptist University in Shawnee, Oklahoma.
