TULSA, Okla. – For the second year in a row, the Oral Roberts men's and women's basketball teams beat Tulsa in the annual PSO Mayor's Cup games, keeping both trophies at 81st and Lewis for another year.
The women played first, with ORU taking a 59-53 slugfest at the Reynolds Center on November 20, 2015. Kaylan Mayberry gave the Golden Eagles their first lead with 13 seconds left in the first half. ORU trailed just once in the second half before another trey by Mayberry put ORU up for good with 9:40 left in the fourth quarter.
On the men's side, the game wasn't decided until the final two seconds and took an unlikely 3-pointer from Albert Owens and a jumper by Obi Emegano to propel ORU to a 70-68 win. It was the third straight victory for ORU in the series.
This is the 10th of 15 editions of the #TopORUMoments from 2015-16 as selected by the ORU Media Relations Department and a social media poll.
