HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. -- Kendrick Nunn scored 19 of his 33 points in the second half and Oakland never trailed on its way to an 83-70 win over Northern Kentucky on Friday night.
The loss dropped the Norse (14-7, 7-2 Horizon) out of first place in the league standings, one game behind Wright State (8-1).
Nunn, who finished 6 of 13 from 3-point range, scored five of the Grizzlies' points during a 10-2 run that made it 71-59 with four minutes to go. The Norse ran it back to 73-66 on Jordan Garnett's 3-pointer with 2:38 left, but Oakland made 8 of 10 free throws in the final two minutes and Nunn punctuated the victory with a dunk as time ran out.
