TULSA, Okla. — Keni Jo Lippe scored 17 of her 21 points in the first half in leading Oral Roberts to an 84-57 win over the UNO women on Thursday night.

UNO led 23-20 with seven minutes left in the first half, but Oral Roberts ended the half on a 21-6 run to take control. Lippe scored 12 during that run.

The Mavs cut their deficit to 48-39 on Rayanna Carter’s basket midway through the third quarter, but that’s the only time the margin was in single digits after halftime.

The Summit leader in scoring, Lippe was one of six Eagles in double figures as Oral Roberts shot 54.2% from the field.
