STORYLINES

► Oral Roberts returns to the Mabee Center Saturday looking to snap a three-game skid against Western Illinois in the Play for Kay Pink Game. ORU fell in the first meeting between the teams on January 1 after the Golden Eagles swept the season series last season.

► ORU has split season series with IUPUI, South Dakota and IPFW so far this year as they look for the split with Western Illinois as well. The Golden Eagles hold season sweeps over NDSU and Denver while a possible sweep vs Omaha looms next week.

► During Summit League play ORU has held teams to 60 points or fewer 10 times. However, the Golden Eagles have been held shy of the 60 point mark 10 times as well going 5-5 in those games.

► Oral Roberts has controlled the boards during Summit League play holding a +2.4 rebounding margin through 14 games.

► Sophomore Kaylan Mayberry continues to lead ORU in scoring at 10.9 points per game. Mayberry also ranks in the top 15 during the conference season at 12.4 ppg.

Faith Ihim ranks in the top 10 of rebounding during Summit League play at 7.4 boards per game. Ihim is also averaging 16.0 rebounds per game in the last five games for ORU.

► The Golden Eagles were 1-of-11 from the three-point line in Wednesday's loss at IPFW. It was the fewest three-pointers for ORU since going 0-for-6 against South Dakota State last season on February 13, 2015.
