STORYLINES

► Oral Roberts and Oklahoma State will play for the first time since 2010 when the Cowgirls won 77-48 in Stillwater. The Golden Eagles start a busy stretch with three games in five days, all on the road. Friday will be the 40th all-time meeting between the two schools in women's basketball as the Cowgirls have won the last five games in the series.

► ORU sits at 2-2 on the year as they have led all four games at the half this season giving the Golden Eagles a 41-13 record in the last four seasons when leading at intermission. Last season ORU was 14-3 when leading at halftime. 

► Sophomore Bria Pitts continues to lead ORU offensively as she has scored in double figures each game and paces the team with 13 points per game. Through four games Pitts 43 percent from behind the three-point line and has yet to miss a free throw going 6-for-6 to start the season.

► The Golden Eagles have been one of the best teams defensively through the first four games of the season. Combined ORU has held teams to 34.5 percent shooting from the field ranking 72nd in the nation. The nation's leader - Alabama - sits just seven points ahead of ORU holding teams to 27.5 percent.

► Speak of the Golden Eagle defense, ORU is averaging 13.0 steals per game which not only ranks tops among Summit League teams, but is also 27th best in country. Morehead State currently paces the nation averaging 16.4 steals per game.

► Through four games ORU has two of the top free throw shooters on its team with Dorottya Balla and Bria Pitts. While Pitts' attempts have not met the national average to be ranked, Balla leads The Summit League and ranks 47th at 90.9 percent on the season making 10-of-11. The junior had made her first seven free throws of the season before missing her first attempt on Tuesday night.
