Bell-Holter caps super January [Basketball]
Hydaburg’s Damen Bell-Holter ended the month of January the same way he started – scoring, rebounding and leading Oral Roberts to victory.
The 6-foot-9 center scored 22 points on 9-of-15 shooting and added eight rebounds in a 75-54 win over McNeese State in Tulsa, Okla.
Bell-Holter will surely be named Southland Conference Player of the Month.
The former Ketchikan High star averaged 21.4 points and 10.8 rebounds in eight games in January, helping Oral Roberts go 7-1. He shot 60 percent from the field.
He had four double-doubles in those eight games, including a 35-point, 14-rebound performance against Southeastern Louisiana and a 25-point, 20-rebound effort against Northwestern State.
