Utah transfer Shawn Glover scored 22 points in his first exhibition game as a member of the Oral Roberts University basketball team and Steven Roundtree added 21 points in a 83-66 victory Thursday night over NCAA Division II opponent Missouri Southern.
Warren Niles and Korey Billbury scored 12 points each and Damen Bell-Holter contributed six points and 15 rebounds, two shy of his career-high total that he accumulated against Missouri in 2010.
