Austin Peay (1-6) had few answers for Oral Roberts center Vicky McIntyre, who was the talk of the first half, posting a 20-point, 20-rebound effort in the opening half.

The Lady Govs then solved ORU’s McIntyre as she picked up her fourth foul with 12:16 left in the game. Junior center Tearra Banks hit the ensuing free throws to cut the lead to five points again at the 11:56 mark.

However, McIntyre’s departure seemed to spark Oral Roberts which broke the game open with a 19-4 over four minutes.

Dorottya Balla closed the run with two three-point baskets in a one minute span, giving ORU a 67-47 lead with 7:15 left that it would not relinquish.
