MBB Heads West For Matchup With Pacific
TULSA, Okla.-After cruising to a 49-point victory in the home opener, the Oral Roberts men's basketball team will hit the road again for the first of a four-game road swing out west to face Pacific at 9 p.m. (CT) on Monday, Nov. 19.
The trip is the beginning of a brutal stretch in which the Golden Eagles will play 10 of the next 12 games away from Tulsa between now and Jan. 10, with home games against Oklahoma (Nov. 28) and Tulsa (Dec. 22) as the only two exceptions.
Monday's game will be broadcast live in the Tulsa area on FM 97.1 "The Sports Animal." Free audio will also be made available at www.ORUGoldenEagles.com.
The trip to Stockton, Calif., is part of an agreement that started during an ESPN BracketBusters contest in 2011. This will mark just the second time in school history in which these two teams have faced off.
Led by Warren Niles' 24.0 ppg, ORU enters the game with a 1-1 record, while Pacific is1-1 after a 66-60 loss at Fresno State on Friday night.
