IUPUI holds off ORU late, 91-85

Kris Martin scored 25 points but it wasn’t enough as IUPUI defeated ORU 91-85 Saturday in the Mabee Center.

“Give IUPUI credit, they outplayed us and deserved to win,” said ORU coach Scott Sutton. “We waited 36 minutes to start playing desperate basketball and it was too late. They beat us to loose balls and beat us offensive rebounding. It amazes me that we spend so much time in practice working on our defense and we show them on film and there is no carryover.”

Albert Owens had 21 points for ORU. The Jaguars shot 55 percent (34-62) for the game, including 66 percent (22-33) in the first half.
