TULSA, Okla. -- The UND women's basketball team's available roster grew from eight players last week to 10 on Friday night, but that wasn't enough for the Fighting Hawks to pick up their first win of the season.

A 22-13 advantage in the fourth quarter carried Oral Roberts to an 84-71 win over UND in Summit League play.

After playing just one of two games against Kansas City last weekend because of COVID-19 issues, UND saw the lineup return of Juliet Gordon and Claire Orth.

UND, which shot 33 percent from the field and 20 percent from the 3-point line, was led by 20 points and 10 rebounds from sophomore Megan Zander.


Tierney Coleman's 20 points paced the Golden Eagles.

UND never led in the second half but the Fighting Hawks pulled to within two (62-60) on a Jaclyn Jarnot layup with 8:53 left in the game.

But ORU countered with a quick 5-0 run as the Golden Eagles slowly pulled away from there.

Joining Zander in double figures was Julia Fleecs with 18 points and eight rebounds.

With Gordon's return, UND was as close to full strength in the post as has been all season. With Olivia Lane playing in her second game of the year following an injury, Friday was the first time the Hawks had the services of Lane, Gordon and Fleecs at the same time.

Gordon, a sophomore from Australia, finished with eight points but was 1-for-12 from the field.

Lane added nine points and seven rebounds in just 18 minutes.


UND dropped to 0-8 and will play ORU again Saturday at 5 p.m.
