TULSA, OK:

    The 3rd-seeded Oakland Golden Grizzlies were
bounced out of the Summit LGE men's basketbal
tournament semi-finals by #2-seed IUPUI Monday
night, 80-65.
    The Jaguars led OU 37-33 at the half and steadily
pulled away after intermission. IUPUI never trailed,
led by as many as the 15-P final margin, and improved
to 3-&-0 all-time in tourney games vs the Griz.
    George Hill led the winners with a game-high 32-P
and Jon Avery added 14-P for the Jags. Austin Montgomery
& Gary Patterson both scored 9-P.
    Oakland failed in spite of balanced scoring where four players reached double
figures. Derick Nelson had 21-P, Johnathon Jones 18-P, Erik Kangas 13-P and Tim
Williams 11-P. However, the other five Grizzlies who got into the game only combined
for 2-P. Nelson's 21-P with 12-RB gave the OU junior his fifth double-double of the
season.
    The Jaguars shot 53.7% from the field and OU only 36.1%.  
    IUPUI improved to 26-&-6 while Oakland finished at 17-&-14.
    Indiana-Purdue will take on host and defending Summit champion Oral Roberts
in the Finals.
