TULSA, Okla. – A dominant final quarter led the Oral Roberts women's basketball team past nationally-ranked Oklahoma on December 4, 2016, the fifth best moment for the 2016-17 school year.

ORU closed the game on a 20-2 run over the final 6:35 of the game wo take a 74-67 victory. The spurt came after the Golden Eagles used a 17-3 run to end the third quarter to trim the No. 12 Sooner's lead to three to get ORU within striking distance. 

The victory was the first win over a ranked opponent since 1986 and the first win over Oklahoma since 1983.
