NCAA Game Summary - Oral Roberts at Baylor



(Monday, December 30th)

Final Score: (9) Baylor 81, Oral Roberts 55

Waco, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Cory Jefferson scored all 17 of his points in the second half as the ninth-ranked Baylor Bears capped 2013 with an 81-55 rout of Oral Roberts from Ferrell Center.

Taurean Prince and Isaiah Austin carried the scoring load in the first half, combining for 25 of Baylor's 36 points in the opening 20 minutes. Prince finished with 16 off the bench and Austin had 15 as Baylor (11-1) finished December unbeaten for the fifth time in the last seven years.

"The first five minutes of the game, we weren't really moving, and we weren't very active. Then, we turned around and played thirty-five minutes of very good basketball," Baylor head coach Scott Drew said.

Shawn Glover led all scorers with 22 points for Oral Roberts (6-7), which has lost four of five. Denell Henderson contributed 16 points with a team-high eight rebounds, while the rest of the Golden Eagles scored just 17 points on 6-of-32 shooting.

"Baylor is a very good team and I thought they played well tonight. It is a tough matchup for us," ORU head coach Scott Sutton said.

Baylor went the first 5:46 without a field goal, but Oral Roberts managed just seven points during that stretch. Kenny Chery finally broke the seal for the Bears with a 3, and Baylor went in front two trips later after Brady Heslip's shot from the arc.

Prince and Austin combined for the next 20 Baylor points as the hosts built a 28-15 lead. Chery's 3-pointer was followed by another five points -- three from Austin, two from Prince -- and the Bears took a 36-25 edge into the break.

Jefferson, who spent most of the first half on the bench in foul trouble, made his presence felt with the first six Baylor points of the second.

Ish Wainright and Rico Gathers made layups on the front and back ends of a 9-0 Baylor surge midway through the period to make it 59-38.

The Bears coasted from there.
