Anchorage, AK (Sports Network) - Warren Niles erupted for a game-high 33 points as he led the Oral Roberts Golden Eagles to a 75-66 win over the Lions of Loyola Marymount in the first round of the Great Alaska Shootout at the Sullivan Arena.

LMU moved out to an early five-point lead less than two minutes into the contest, but the squad ended up shooting only 3-of-10 beyond the arc in the frame and that pushed them to a three-point deficit at the break, 30-27.
