Both teams on fire early. Good old-fashioned barn-burner.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

ORU up 55-52 at the half. Great energy from both teams, players and benches. This is the way the game is supposed to be played.

ORU wins 92-85. They were deadly from beyond the arc. I hope we see them again in the tournament.

That was an emotionally draining game. I hope the fans in attendance have a little left for the next game.

I have the opposite opinion I think we seem to play better against Denver

Oral Roberts had 20 three-pointers, with 14 of them coming in the first half. That is a program record for Oral Roberts.

Annabel Graettinger led the Western scoring with 16 points. Taylor Higginbotham and Danni Nichols each had 15. Olivia Kaufmann had 13.

Attendance at Western Hall = 792 (third largest crowd of the season).

Next game will be at Denver on Thursday (Feb 28). Special start time of 2PM.
