North Dakota State hands Oakland first league loss

| December 28, 2011 | Comments (2)

FARGO, N.D. – Losses on the road or at home have been rare for Oakland University during the past couple of seasons. Blowout losses have been even a rarer feat.

The Golden Grizzlies, who were a combined 34-2 the past two seasons in Summit League play, suffered both Wednesday night on the road.

North Dakota State used a 17-0 run in the second half to fuel a 96-69 Summit League men’s basketball victory over Oakland at the Bison Sports Arena.

The loss was the fourth-worst league defeat for OU in program history.

“Early on in the game we were really, really poor on offense,” said Oakland coach Greg Kampe. “Once the momentum got going in their direction, they were very good.”

Reggie Hamilton scored a game-high 24 points, 18 in the second half, for Oakland.

Travis Bader was the only other Oakland player in double figures with 12 points. He finished 5-of-13 from the floor and 0-for-4 from behind the arc. Kyle Sikora led OU (8-7, 2-1) on the glass with five rebounds.

NDSU (9-3, 2-a) had five players reach double figures in the game and shot 64 percent from the floor. Taylor Braun scored 18 points in the first half and finished with a team-high 21. Mike Felt scored 16 points off the bench and went 4 of 7 from long range, while TrayVonn Wright finished with 15. Dylan Hale drained all four of his 3-point attempts and scored 12 points and Lawrence Alexander posted 11 points and 10 assists for a double-double.

The Golden Grizzlies took an early 5-2 lead, but the Bison countered with a 17-0 run to take a 19-5 advantage. NDSU extended the lead to 21points and led by 20 at the break, 50-30. The Golden Grizzlies failed to convert on a 3-pointer in the first half, finishing 0-for-6.

Hamilton drained a quick 3-pointer in the second half, but the Bison shot 70 percent from beyond the arc in the final 20 minutes and led by as many as 31 points in the game. NDSU snapped Oakland’s 7-game league winning streak and become the second league school in three years to defeat the Golden Grizzlies.

OU will travel to Brookings, S.D. to take on South Dakota State (10-4, 2-0) on Friday night at 8:30 p.m. ET. The game can be heard on OU’s flagship station WDFN-AM (1130) with Mario Impemba (play-by-play) and Scott MacDonald (color).
