Albert Owens was one of three Oral Roberts players to notch a double-double with 22 points and a career-high 13 rebounds, and the Golden Eagles beat Division III East Texas Baptist 93-66 on Tuesday night.
Emmanuel Nzekwesi added 12 points and 11 rebounds with three steals for Oral Roberts (8-15). Javan White and R.J. Fuqua each scored 11 and Jontray Harris had 10 points, a career-high 12 rebounds and five assists. Owens was 10 of 17 from the field and reached his second career double-double after just 25 minutes of playing time.
As anyone familiar with the pro game will tell you, the left tackle is among the most important positions in the game. While we bounce between peak, inferno Blake Bortles and the less-than-stellar normal version of him with each week (and sometimes, each possession), Robinson has been a constant. His presumed availability is great news for the Jaguars as they head toward the postseason for the first time in 10 years.
That wasn’t the only blow for the Jaguars, as wide receiver Jaelen Strong announced on his Instagram he suffered a torn ACL in Sunday’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
The Big South and school record for individual 3s is 11 by CU’s Scott Neely in 1994.
Clemons scored 42 points on 11-of-16 shooting from the field, and 10 of 14 from the free-throw line. Burk was 11 of 17 and finished with 32 points. The duo made 22 of Campbell’s 27 baskets. No other Campbell player made more than one field goal.
Georgie Pacheco-Ortiz scored 24 points to lead Liberty (12-10, 3-6), which shot 50 percent from the floor (26 of 52), but was just 9-of-24 shooting from long range (37.5 percent).
Right now, though, the Gators are a hot team. The 8-1 stretch includes victories last week over Arkansas and No. 18 Kentucky.
That helped put the Gators in first in the SEC with a 6-1 record.
