TULSA, Okla. - The Oral Roberts University women's basketball program opened the 2013-14 season on Monday afternoon with their first practice of the season. Head Coach Misti Cussen welcomed four returners to the court, as well as 10 newcomers that will suit up for the Golden Eagles this season.
"I loved the energy from this group today," said Cussen. "They're very attentive and very hungry to learn. I thought our returners did a great job leading by example, and our new players jumped in right behind them."
ORU will practice 30 times before taking the court for their first game, on November 8 against USAO.
The Golden Eagles finished 18-13 last season and captured the Southland Conference regular season and tournament championships. ORU advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the sixth time in program history, where they fell to Tennessee in the opening round.
