STORYLINES

► Oral Roberts heads north to face Omaha who is in its first full season NCAA Division I eligibility. The Golden Eagles swept the season series last year, but the Mavericks who also opened brand new Baxter Arena have been tough to beat at home with an 8-3 record in Omaha.

► The Golden Eagles have won four in a row for the first time since the 2012-13 season. A win Thursday night would give ORU its first five game win streak since the end of the 2011-12 season and the best start in The Summit League since 2010-11.

► ORU has been one of the best defensive teams in The Summit League ranking fourth overall and third during league play in points allowed. The Golden Eagles have allowed just one opponent over 60 points as Western Illinois scored 72 in the first game of the season.

► Underclassmen have continued to carry ORU led by sophomores Kaylan Mayberry, Jordan Doyle and freshman Ashley Beatty. Since the start of league play Mayberry leads the team averaging 14 ppg, while Doyle averages 9.8 and Beatty at 8.2 points per game. 

► ORU and Omaha are two of the best three-point shooting teams in the league. Omaha ranks first at 41 percent while ORU ranks third at 34 percent shooting. Jordan Doyle leads the league in conference play at 60 percent shooting, while Omaha's Remy Davenport is second at 54 percent. 

► The Golden Eagles have two of the league's top defensive players. In Summit League play Mayberry leads the league with 2.8 steals per game while Beatty is tied for third at 2.2 steals per contest.
