Six players scored in double figures, including three with more than 20 apiece as second-ranked Oklahoma Baptist cruised past Dallas Christian Thursday in the Noble Complex, 113-64. Dallas Christian stayed within 10 for much of the first half, but the Bison closed the half on a 21-8 run, including three 3-pointers by Chase Adams. The Bison led 50-29 at halftime. “It was a struggle at first, but I think this was our best game of the year,” said Bison coach Doug Tolin. “We’ve made progress. We had better ball movement and better rebounding. I thought it would be a good game tonight. We’re short-handed but guys stepped up.” OBU led by as many as 51 points late in the second half. Adams had his best scoring night of the season with a team-high 27 points, followed by Cale Jackson with 22, Kameron Price with 21, David Johnson with 16, Hayden Darst with 12 and Clinton Houston — getting his first start — with 10. “I’ve been struggling so it felt good to hit some shots,” said Adams. “The ball movement was good tonight. Good teams need four to six shooters and we have that.” The Bison shot 59 percent from the field and out-rebounded the Crusaders 42-24. Houston led the Bison with nine rebounds, while Darst had eight. OBU had 27 assists in the game, led by Kendall Parks with seven. Malcolm McCarty had 24 to lead Dallas Christian. Now 4-0 on the season, the Bison host Southwestern Christian at 8 p.m. Saturday. Note: Report provided by Ray Fink, OBU sports information director.
