TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- Dominique Morrison scored 28 points and Oral Roberts repelled UMKC's second-half charge, running its winning streak to 13 games with a 77-67 victory Saturday night.

Roderick Pearson added 13 points and Michael Craion 11 for the Golden Eagles (20-4, 12-0 Summit League), who shot 60 percent and have won 20 straight at home. Damon Bell-Holter grabbed 10 rebounds.

Trinity Hall's 17 points led the Kangaroos (9-15, 3-9), who lost their second in a row. Reggie Chamberlain hit four 3-pointers among his 16 points. Thomas Staton scored 15 and Kirk Korver 13.

After UMKC scored the first basket, the Golden Eagles ripped off 12 in a row and never trailed again. But with Oral Roberts up 53-39, Korver, Chamberlain and Staton combined for 12 consecutive points that sliced the gap to 53-51 with 9:47 left.

Pearson and Morrison responded with four points each in an 8-1 spurt that sealed it.
