ROCHESTER, Mich. (AP) -- Oral Roberts beat Oakland 66-60 in the first matchup since the Golden Eagles beat Oakland in a March championship game.
Oral Roberts led 59-56 when Johnathan Jones tipped the ball away from Robert Jarvis, who scored 20 points. Two Oakland players had chances to pick up the ball, but failed, and Jarvis scooped it up and hit long 3-pointer.
Shawn King added 12 points for Oral Roberts and Marchello Vealy finished with 11 points and eight rebounds. The Golden Eagles shot 56.5 percent and held Oakland to 40 percent.
Derick Nelson led the Golden Grizzlies with 20 points and nine rebounds, while Jones finished with 15 points and nine assists.
Oakland was missing key reserve Brandon Cassise, who served the second game of an indefinite suspension for a violation of team policy. Oakland coach Greg Kampe said he wasn't sure whether the senior would return.
