Gigger, OCU fall to Bronchos 85-63 on hardwood

MOORE — EDMOND– Oklahoma City University fell to Central Oklahoma 85-63 Saturday in its second game of the Central Oklahoma Classic at Hamilton Field House.

The Stars, now 3-3 on the season, had four players score in double figures, but shot just 37 percent from the floor and fell to Bronchos for the second time in as many weeks.

Central Oklahoma started the game with a barrage of 3-pointers from Cal Andrews, Josh Gibbs and Seth Heckart, but Terrence Walker scored OCU’s first 11 points and kept the Stars in game.

Moore alum Dorion Gigger buried a 3-point jumper to cut the Broncho’s lead to 17-14 with 12 minutes and 15 seconds remaining in the first half.

Central Oklahoma got another 3-pointer from Andrews at the 2:18 mark and took a 12-point advantage.

OCU responded by going on a 7-0 run to end the half and make the score 38-33 at the break. Terence Bonhomme fueled the run with a 3-pointer in transition and a fastbreak layup.

The Stars scored 14 points in the paint and OCU’s bench outscored Central Oklahoma’s second unit 11-2 in the period. Central Oklahoma shot 50 percent from the floor while the Stars shot just 35 percent.

Bonhomme, Jamaal Crayton and Gigger all made clutch baskets to keep Central Oklahoma’s lead to single digits early in the second half.

At the 15:35 mark, the Bronchos embarked on a 12-0 run and built a 62-42 advantage with less than 13 minutes remaining in the game.

Terry Johnson converted a pair of free throws at the 10:54 mark to cut the Central Oklahoma lead to 16 points, but that was as close as the Stars got as the Broncho’s continued their hot shooting and took the 85-63 victory.

Central Oklahoma finished the game shooting 51 percent from the floor and 50 percent from 3-point range. The Stars scored 36 points in the paint but shot just 27 percent from 3-point land on the night.

Walker led the Stars with 18 points on 61 percent shooting and grabbed nine rebounds. Johnson followed with 13 points and four assists. Crayton and Gigger added 10 points apiece.

The Stars will open Sooner Athletic Conference play against first-year conference member Southwestern Assemblies of God (Texas) at 8 p.m. Dec. 5 in Waxahachie, Texas.
