ROCHESTER, Mich. (AP) Travis Bader hit a school-record 11 3-pointers and scored a career-high 47 points to lead Oakland past IUPUI 89-71 Thursday night.

Bader's point total is the highest this season by a Division I player, beating a 42-point performance by Tyler Haws of BYU. It is also the highest single-game total in Oakland's Division I history, and third all-time at the school.

Bader was 11 for 18 from beyond the arc, 15 for 24 overall and 6 for 6 at the free-throw line. That helped the Golden Grizzlies (9-13, 4-4 Summit) shoot 55 percent overall from the field, including 14 of 30 on 3-point attempts.

Sean Esposito scored 21 points and Donovan Gibbs had 15 for IUPUI (6-17, 1-8), which lost its seventh straight.

Corey Petros added 12 points and 11 rebounds for Oakland, and Duke Mondy had 11 points. The Grizzlies outrebounded the Jaguars 37-18 and swept the season series between the schools.
