ORU wins Sutton battle

December 21, 2007


— Robert Jarvis scored 21 points to help Oral Roberts beat Oklahoma State, 74-59, Thursday night and give Scott Sutton a victory against older brother Sean in the first meeting between the two as head coaches.

The brothers, who had been on opposing staffs as assistants before, had been reluctant to face each other, and Sean Sutton called it a "favor" to get his younger brother's program a rare television appearance.

It turned into the second victory against a Big 12 opponent in the past two years for the Golden Eagles (7-4), who also pulled off an upset at third-ranked Kansas last season.

Eddie Sutton, their father, won 798 games at Creighton, Arkansas, Kentucky and Oklahoma State. He watched from a courtside seat across from the Cowboys' bench.

Oklahoma 72, No. 18 Gonzaga 68

Oklahoma City - Longar Longar scored 16 points, including the go-ahead basket, and Oklahoma overcame a 28-point performance by Gonzaga's Jeremy Pargo.


No. 9 Oklahoma 121, Central Arkansas 48

Norman, Okla. - Courtney Paris recorded her 71st consecutive double-double with 14 points and 13 rebounds.

George Washington 66, No. 10 Texas A&M; 65, OT

Washington - Sarah-Jo Lawrence scored a career-high 29 points.

No. 19 Texas 62, No. 22 Arizona State 51

Tempe, Ariz. - Brittainey Raven scored 18 points, and Texas won its seventh straight.
