• ORU is 4-0 all-time against Omaha, with the first two meetings coming in 1974 and 1976 respectively. Last year was the first time the two teams have faced off as league opponents.
• A win Saturday would keep ORU perfect against UNO and even the Golden Eagles' league record back at .500.
• A loss Saturday would be the three home losses this season, surpassing the total number of home losses from last year (12-2).
• Saturday will serve as Hall of Fame night at ORU, and the 2016 class of Keith Mucha (Baseball), Ken Tutt (Men's Basketball) and Rachel Talbert-Andres (Women's Track & Field) will be honored at halftime of the game.
• ORU started the year 8-2, claimed the PSO Mayor's Cup for the third year in a row with a 70-68 win over Tulsa, and swept through the Men Against Breast Cancer Classic at James Madison to win the tournament with a 3-0 record.
• 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, who has earned a league-best three Player of the Week honors already, was tabbed as the league's Player of the Year.
