Quick Hits
• ORU has won the last two meetings against Tulsa, but trails in the all-time series 32-18. ORU last won at the Reynolds Center in 2013, earning the 74-68 victory. Oddly enough, in each of the last four meetings, the losing team has scored exactly 68 points.

• A win Saturday would move ORU to 7-2 and give ORU a three-game winning streak in the series for the first time since winning in 2003, 2004 and 2005.

• A loss Saturday would give ORU back-to-back losses for the first time since falling to Denver and South Dakota State January 21 and 24 of last season.

• With wins over Tabor and Detroit, the Golden Eagles scored 100 points in back-to-back games for the first time under Coach Sutton and the first time since 1998.

Albert Owens and Obi Emegano (MVP) were each named to the Men Against Breast Cancer Classic All-Tournament Team after helping ORU to a 3-0 record and tournament championship.

• ORU was picked to finish third in The Summit League in the preseason poll, although the Golden Eagles did pick up one first place vote. Obi Emegano was tabbed as the league's Player of the Year.
