Game Notes
- ORU and South Carolina will meet for the third time on the hardwood but the first time since 1989 when ORU won 87-86 in Tulsa. USC won the first meeting 91-62 in 1988.

- A win Monday would be the first win over a current member of the SEC since the 2009-10 season when ORU toppled Missouri. It would also put ORU at 2-0 for the first time since 2004-05 when the Golden Eagles won their first eight games of the season.

- A loss Monday would be send ORU to 0-2 against the SEC over the past two years (lost at Missouri November 19, 2014)

- ORU was picked to finish third in The Summit League in the preseason poll, although the Golden Eagles did pick up one first place vote. Obi Emegano was tabbed as the league's Player of the Year.
