Quick Hits
• ORU is 5-2 all-time against South Dakota after the Coyotes topped the Golden Eagles at the Mabee Center earlier this year. ORU is now trying to duplicate last year's results when the two teams split the regular season with each team winning its road game.

A win Saturday would snap the four-game skid and earn the season split with the Coyotes.

A loss Saturday would mean that the Golden Eagles could finish no better than .500 in League play.

• In the first meeting, the Golden Eagles had four players score at least 12 points in a 94-84 shootout, but ORU was without the services of its leading scorer, Obi Emegano, who was out with a concussion.

• 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.

Albert Owens and Obi Emegano (MVP) were each named to the Men Against Breast Cancer Classic All-Tournament Team after helping ORU to a 3-0 record and tournament championship.
