Golden Eagles Announce 2018-19 Schedule

ORU Schedule | Summit League Composite Schedule

TULSA, Okla. – The Oral Roberts women's basketball team released the 2018-19 schedule Tuesday which includes four road games against Power 5 opponents and a home game against crosstown rival Tulsa.  

"We are ready to get this season started," Head Coach Misti Cussen said. "We are happy with the nonconference portion, since playing four Power 5 opponents on the road will definitely prepare us for a tough Summit League schedule."

The Golden Eagles will open the season at the Mabee Center against Harris-Stowe State (Nov. 6). This will be the first time since the 2015-16 season that the Golden Eagles will open the campaign at home. ORU will then have two road games against Power 5 opponents beginning with Iowa (Nov. 9) and Kansas (Nov. 13). The annual Mayor's Cup game against Tulsa will be at the Mabee Center (Nov. 17). UMKC will visit ORU (Nov. 20) before the Golden Eagles hit the road for a matchup at Texas State (Nov. 24) and a day trip to Arkansas (Nov. 28).

ORU will open the month of December with three games at the Mabee Center: Southern Utah (Dec. 1), Central Christian College (Dec. 3) and UT Arlington (Dec. 6). The remaining nonconference games in December will be played on the road: Sam Houston State (Dec. 14), Houston Baptist (Dec. 16), Oklahoma State (Dec. 21). ORU will open Summit League play at Omaha (Dec. 30).

New member to the Summit League, North Dakota, will be at the Mabee Center (Jan. 2). Western Illinois will follow with a Saturday matchup (Jan. 5). The Golden Eagles continue the month of January at Purdue-Fort Wayne (Jan. 9), and at South Dakota State (Jan. 12) before returning home to face South Dakota (Jan. 18). After a trip to Denver (Jan. 20), the Golden Eagles will have four straight home games: North Dakota State (Jan. 26), Purdue-Fort Wayne (Jan. 30), South Dakota State (Feb. 2) and Denver (Feb. 6).

ORU will have four straight road games in the middle of February: South Dakota (Feb. 9), North Dakota State (Feb. 13), North Dakota (Feb. 16) and Western Illinois (Feb. 23). The Golden Eagles will close out the regular season at home against Omaha (Feb. 28). The 2018-19 Summit League Tournament will be played March 9-12 at the Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

ORU welcomes four newcomers to the squad for the 2018-19 season, along with its 10 returners. Summit League All-Newcomer, Maya Mayberry, will be in her sophomore season with Golden Eagles. Last season Mayberry shot 46.5 percent from the field for a total of 347 points. She also shot 47.1 percent from three-point range.
