TULSA, Okla. – Despite a rich tradition that boasts four All-Americans, an NCAA scoring champion and a WNBA draft pick, on March 6, 2016, Kaylan Mayberry did something that had never been done in the Oral Roberts women's basketball program as she scored 33 points to lead ORU past Western Illinois in the Summit League Tournament.
Prior to Mayberry's career-night, no Golden Eagle—or Lady Titan—had ever scored 30 points in a postseason game. Jaci (Bigham) Inman and Kevi (Luper) Zufall held the record at 28 points, doing so in 2010 and 2011, respectively.
Mayberry's incredible 13-of-17 shooting effort, which included five 3-pointers, pushed ORU to the Summit League semifinals.
This is the fourth of 15 editions of the #TopORUMoments from 2015-16 as selected by the ORU Media Relations Department and a social media poll.
