    TULSA, Okla. -- Rashawn Thomas scored 15 points Saturday and Zane Knowles added 14 and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi held off Oral Roberts 71-64.

    Knowles grabbed 10 rebounds, Brandon Pye added 13 points and the Islanders (5-10, 2-0 Southland Conference) outshot the Golden Eagles (7-8, 1-1) from the field 48.1 percent to 42.6 percent.

    The lead changed hands five times before Thomas hit a layup at 9:59 and Hameed Ali followed with a jumper to put the Islanders up 20-16 and they kept Oral Roberts at arm's length for a 37-31 halftime advantage.
