Oakland, Mich. 90, Texas A&M 58
ROCHESTER, Mich. (AP)—Rawle Marshall scored 21 points and Mike Helms added 19 as Oakland beat Texas A&M 90-58 on Saturday night.
The win ended the Golden Grizzlies’ five-game losing streak and was just the third against major-conference opposition in Oakland’s six years in Division I. Oakland (3-5) also got 18 from Cortney Scott in its first win against a Big 12 school.
The Aggies (3-2) entered the game with a 34-13 record against Mid-Continent teams, but Nick Anderson was the team’s only player to reach double digits with 10 points. Texas A&M’s leading scorers, Jesse King and Antoine Wright, combined for just five points on 2-for-14 shooting.
Oakland led 41-32 at the half, but scored the first eight after intermission, including two 3-pointers from Helms. Oakland’s leading scorer, Helms had lost his spot in the starting lineup because of a shooting slump and played just 20 minutes.
Helms picked up his fourth foul with 16:17 to play and Oakland leading 49-35, but the Golden Grizzlies got back-to-back 3-pointers from Kelly Williams and Pierre Dukes and never looked back. Oakland led by as many as 36 points down the stretch.
