TULSA – Oral Roberts’ Kevi Luper is featured in the August issue of SLAM Magazine as one of three “under-the-radar players who demand your attention”, along with San Jose State’s Adrian Oliver and Fordham’s Chris Gaston.

Luper, who became the fourth All-American at ORU, had arguably the best season in Golden Eagle history, as the Adair, Okla., native shattered 14 single-season school and league records and tied or set six single-game marks during her freshman year.

Luper finished the season ranked sixth nationally in scoring (24.4 ppg) and first in steals (4.5 spg), while earning Summit League Player of the Year, Newcomer of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year honors.

Luper became the all-time leading scorer for a single season in Summit League history by scoring her 660th point at UMKC on Feb. 27. Luper also set single-season Summit League marks in made field goals (260), field goal attempts (563), made free-throws (194), free-throw attempts (235) and points per game (24.4). Luper’s 194 made free-throws are also an ORU record. Luper became ORU’s all-time single-season steals leader by swiping 10 against Centenary on Feb. 20, and finished the season with a total of 140.
