IUPUI 70, Milwaukee 68
MILWAUKEE, Wisc. (AP) — D.J. McCall scored 10 second-half points, including a 3-pointer with 29 seconds left, and Mason Archie II hit five late free throws to lead IUPUI to a 70-68 win over Milwaukee on Wednesday night.
McCall's late 3 capped an 11-2 run and gave IUPUI (1-2) a 65-59 lead.
Steve McWhorter answered with a 3-pointer of his own to make it 65-62 just 6 seconds later.
Milwaukee immediately fouled and Archie hit the first of two free throws before Lyle made a layup, pulling the Panthers within two.
Milwaukee fouled again and Archie made both free throws, putting IUPUI up 68-64.
McWhorter hit another 3 with 7 seconds left before Archie, once again, hit both free throws.
This time IUPUI fouled and McWhorter made the first but missed the second, although Milwaukee got the ball out of bounds. However, Khufu Najee's steal sealed the win.
IUPUI trailed by as many as 13 and took its first lead with 4:44 remaining.
Missouri 78, Oral Roberts 64
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Missouri (2-1) shot 25 of 49 from the field, including 12 of 21 from beyond the arc, in a 78-64 win against Oral Roberts on Wednesday night. The team converted 12 of 19 overall attempts in the second half, and Gill-Caesar's 3-pointer with 12:40 remaining started a stretch where seven of eight baskets came from long range.
Gill-Caesar finished with 19 points, Clark added 14 points and nine assists and Williams III scored 10.
The second-half outburst surprised Oral Roberts coach Scott Sutton, who said he's never seen a better offensive performance in a half. The Golden Eagles (1-1) led for most of the first 27 minutes before Missouri scored six consecutive points to take a 58-52 advantage with 10:51 remaining.
An 8-0 Tigers run capped by a 3-pointer by Deuce Bello with 3 minutes left gave them a 73-62 lead, and Oral Roberts would get no closer than 10 the rest of the way.
The Golden Eagles' Obi Emegano scored a career-high 30 points while Korey Billbury added eight points and 10 rebounds.
The teams combined for 49 fouls and 64 free throws, but despite the game's slow pace both schools shot over 40 percent. Oral Roberts converted 13 of its 20 shots from the field in the first half, including its first eight attempts, but made only 5 of 24 in the closing 20 minutes.
Foul trouble sidelined Emegano's torrid start as he scored 18 points in the opening 7 minutes before collecting two fouls in the following 30 seconds. He sat out the remainder of the half and scored 12 after the break, but never could match his early pace.
"I should have put him back in the game the way he was playing," Sutton said. "He was playing at such a high level. . He's too good. He's too smart."
