The Tulsa Golden Hurricane have racked up four consecutive wins after knocking off Dayton 72-67 on Sunday as a four point underdog. Tulsa burned the nets at 54.7% and allowed the Flyers to hit at 40.7% with 13 more looks to keep the game competitive.

Martins Igbanu topped a balanced Golden Hurricane offense with 17 points on 6-10 accuracy and 5-6 at the line while DeQuan Jeffries added 16 points, six rebounds and two steals on 7-11 from the floor. Tulsa received ten points and seven rebounds from Jeriah Horne followed by Sterling Taplin and Curran Scott with a combined 17 points.

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
