KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — A turnover-free first half helped the Oregon Tech Hustlin’ Owls men’s basketball team to a 73-59 win over Simpson University Tuesday night at Danny Miles Court. 

The lack of giveaways also helped Oregon Tech overcome a 3 for 14 shooting start to still build a 15-9 lead with 12:00 remaining in the opening half.
