Kendrick Nunn led a three-headed monster for the Golden Grizzlies Wednesday night in a win over one of the nation’s top mid-majors. The senior guard poured in a game-high 31 points, while Jalen Hayes added 25 and Martez Walker scored 20 as Oakland defeated Towson, 97-86. “I knew we had to jump on them early […]
A pair of 3-pointers by Cassius Winston helped make the final score of the Spartans’ win Saturday look much more comfortable. Michigan’s Mr. Basketball in 2016 hit triples on back-to-back possessions that took a four-point lead to 10 with less than four minutes remaining as No. 2 Michigan State fended off Oakland, 86-73 at Little […]
A short-handed Oakland may struggle to soak up fouls against No. 2 Michigan State Saturday in Detroit if officials call the game similar to recent meetings between the sides.
One doesn’t need the Force to sense the frustration Greg Kampe is experiencing with his team’s injuries. On top of the somewhat illogical four-game suspension to starting forward Jalen Hayes to start the year, Oakland (6-4) has been missing 6-foot-11 junior Brad Brechting all season after he suffered a broken toe in mid-October that doesn’t […]
Four of Wednesday's seven Horizon League contests were decided by just one possession, including Green Bay's comeback victory.
The Golden Grizzlies lost the battle inside Wednesday night and dropped the first of two non-conference games against Eastern Michigan this month.

At 5-foot-9, Neely excelled in a rare matchup with another player of similar size, Tigers’ 5-foot-7 sophomore Demontrae Jefferson. “The big […]
The Golden Grizzlies nearly came home without a win on their four-game road trip. Missing leading scorer Kendrick Nunn (ankle), Martez Walker supplied a career-high 32 points as Oakland pulled out a 93-86 overtime victory over Oral Roberts. “We did some championship stuff late,” Oakland coach Greg Kampe told WDFN in his post-game comments. “We […]
The Jayhawks held a 24-2 advantage in points off turnovers, also feeding in the paint in the victory over another conference favorite.
The Jayhawks have been described as many things under Bill Self at Phog Allen Fieldhouse, and Oakland coach Greg Kampe added another to that lexicon after Friday night’s game. “Some days you’re the windshield, some days you’re the bug, and today we were the bug,” Kampe said. The Golden Grizzlies had 20 turnovers, their own […]
The Golden Grizzlies fell in the Carrier Dome, Detroit Mercy face off-court issues and Wright State picked up its first win all in Monday's Horizon League Men's Basketball roundup.
Oakland’s struggles to move the ball and keep hold of the rock led to a lopsided 74-50 loss in a trip to the Carrier Dome Monday night. Neither team took exceptional care of the ball, but Syracuse made the Golden Grizzlies suffer by scoring 23 points off their 19 turnovers. The rotation of usual ball-handlers […]
