ROCHESTER, Mich. (AP) — Laval Lucas-Perry scored a career-high 23 points and Drew Valentine had a double-double as Oakland, Mich., shook off Rochester College midway through the second half for a 77-62 victory Tuesday night.

Valentine had 20 points and 15 rebounds for the Golden Grizzlies (7-4), who snapped a two-game losing streak. Reggie Hamilton scored 14 and Corey Petros 13.

Dramel Hogan’s 25 points and 10 rebounds led the NAIA Warriors (9-6), who dropped their fifth straight. Brad Norman added 19 points.

Oakland trailed by eight early and didn’t take the lead for good until Petros’ jumper made it 29-27 with 6:52 left in the first half. The Golden Grizzlies led just 41-37 at intermission.

The Warriors pulled within 45-43 on Hogan’s layup with 14:20 left before an 11-2 Oakland run, with the final five points from Lucas-Perry, provided a 56-45 gap with 9:58 to go.

OU is 14-0 against its cross-town foe.
