TULSA, Okla. (AP) Obi Emegano scored a career-high 34 points and Oral Roberts knocked North Dakota State out of a first-place tie in the Summit League, beating the Bison 74-58 on Thursday.

North Dakota State (20-9, 12-4), which finished its league play with the loss, fell a half-game behind South Dakota State, which faces South Dakota on Saturday in the regular season finale.

Oral Roberts (16-13, 9-6) ran up a 23-6 lead over the first 10 minutes of the game with Emegano pouring in 16, including a pair of 3-pointers, over the span. North Dakota State missed 13 of its first 14 shots and Oral Roberts led 41-21 at the break.

The Bison found some rhythm in the second half and reduced their deficit to 13 on Lawrence Alexander's layup with 6:30 left. Oral Roberts responded with a five-point spurt, including a three-point play by Emegano, to put away the Bison.

Bobby Word added 20 points for Oral Roberts.

A.J. Jacobson led NDSU with 15 points.
