Roundtree scored in double-figures 22 times, and recorded six double-doubles. He ranked among Summit League leaders in rebounding (8th) and field-goal percentage (6th).
He scored a career-high 27 points on Feb. 26 against IUPUI, and twice collected 13 rebounds. He earned Summit League player of the week honors on Feb. 28 after averaging 23 points and 12.5 rebounds in ORU’s final two regular season games.
