Top-ranked Oklahoma Baptist held Central Baptist to a season-low 17 field goals and picked up a 71-43 win in men’s NAIA basketball in Shawnee Friday. “The defensive was much better than the offense tonight,” said OBU coach Doug Tolin. “Maybe we’re a team that wins with defense, but I’d like to think we’re better on offense than that. We’re still a work in progress.” The Bison used a 21-5 run to build a 29-13 lead to break open what was a close game early. OBU led 36-18 at the half. The Mustangs got as close as 15 points in the second half, but OBU later reeled off a 12-0 run for a 71-39 lead — its biggest of the game — with 1:38 to play. Kameron Price scored 17 to lead the OBU effort, followed by Chase Adams with 15 and David Johnson with 13. Marques Anderson had 12 rebounds to salt OBU’s 40-34 advantage in that category. Johnson had four assists and Price added five steals to lead the team. Spencer Caraway had 17 points to lead CBC. Now 11-1 on the season, OBU takes on Manhattan Christian at 2 p.m. Saturday.
