KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – The Oregon Tech men’s basketball team moved to 15-2 on the season after knocking off William Jessup University in non-conference action tonight at Danny Miles Court by an 84-69 score.
The win over William Jessup University is the third in as many tries this season, and now moves Tech’s home win streak to 46-straight when the Owls resume Cascade Conference play at home this weekend.
A quick start put the Owls up 13-4 over the course of the first four minutes of the opening period. William Jessup turned things around and cut into the Tech advantage with an 8-2 run that got the Warriors to within three.
Back-to-back Bryant Sentman baskets, including one of his four from long range, fueled the Owls and with 11:35 in the period the home team led 20-12.
The Warriors answered with a 9-1 run to tie it up and would continue to keep it close over the closing nine minutes, as Tech would take a slim 43-38 lead into the locker room.
Still clinging to a five point lead with 17:30 to play, Sentman sparked the Owls with another triple to give OIT their first double-digit lead with 15:44 to play.
Over the next 10 minutes, however, WJU hung around and eventually closed to single digits, 67-61.
Oregon Tech never let the visitors get closer, as the Owls methodically pulled away to win 84-69.
Three Owls finished with a career-high in points, led by 20 from Bryant Sentman. Sentman finished 8-of-9 from the floor, including a perfect 4-for-4 effort from long range to lead the Owls attack.
