Ecclesia Royals Dropped by Oral Roberts University

Thanksgiving week basketball kicked off on Monday night (Nov. 19) for Ecclesia as they traveled to Oklahoma to take on Oral Roberts University.

The game tipped off and the Royals were ready to play. They started the game playing with high energy which intensified when Senior Ashton Worgu (New Iberia, LA/Morthland College) threw down the back end of an alley-oop from Vince Toftness (Owenton, KY/Asbury University). At the second media break the game was tied up at 20.

The turning point in the game followed shortly as ORU went on a 13-0 run late in the first half. This spurt extended to a 23-2 run breaking the game open for Oral Roberts. The Royals were out-rebounded 55-25 which hurt them as ORU was able to score 30 second chance points.

Sophomore Guard Vince Toftness (Owenton, KY/Asbury University) would lead Ecclesia in scoring with 18, half of which would be scored from beyond the arc. Milacio Freeland (Rogers,AR/Lyon College) and Davion Lockridge (El Paso, TX/Ranger Junior College) would also reach double figures in scoring, but Ecclesia would lose 109-72.
