The Oral Roberts Golden Eagles look to turn back the IUPU-Ft. Wayne Mastodons in Summit action.
The IUPU-Ft. Wayne Mastodons were considered a dangerous team heading in to the season and have proved the experts right thus far. The Mastodons will be looking to bounce back from an 84-82 defeat to visiting Indiana-Purdue Saturday where a rally from a 13 point first half deficit came up a basket short. The 47% shooting Mastodons were 10-19 on threes and sank eight more free throws but that wasn’t enough with Indiana-Purdue hitting at 50.8% with ten more looks adding up to seven more baskets. Michael Calder pumped in 20 points to lead Ft. Wayne with Jon Konchar and DeAngelo Stewart netting 14 and 15 points each with 12 and six rebounds respectively. Max Landis scored another 15 points while Joe Reed added eleven points and eight boards.

The Oral Roberts Golden Eagles need to play their best basketball to challenge in the Summit and some help. Help hasn’t come the past two times out with consecutive defeats after an 85-79 loss to conference heavyweight Nebraska Omaha. The Mavericks were up nine after 20 minutes and kept ORU at bay the rest of the way. The Golden Eagles were at 44% marksmanship and Nebraska Omaha sank half their looks which meant a pair of baskets and the win. Obi Emegano led all scorers with 29 points and eight rebounds with Brandon Conley netting 16. Javan White and Jalen Bradley scored ten points apiece and combined for 14 rebounds
