ORU EXPERIENCE | COACHES | 2013-14 SQUAD | OPPONENTS | 2012-13 REVIEW | HISTORY

Greetings from ORU Women’s Basketball! Thank you for your interest and support in our program. It is a great time to be a Golden Eagle here at Oral Roberts University…our university, campus, and student body have experienced a resurgence of growth and vitality over the past couple of years, and we are seeing our own basketball program grow and expand like never before as well! The 2012-2013 season was definitely a special experience for both our program and for me personally. We were the new kids on the block, as we moved from the Summit League to the Southland Conference, and I was also making my personal transition from having been a long-time assistant coach here at ORU to taking over the reins as the head coach. Despite all of the changes, we were led by an amazing class of seniors, and we were blessed to win both the regular season and the conference tournament in our inaugural season. Returning to the NCAA Tournament for the sixth time during my tenure here at ORU was both rewarding and renewing! During the 2013-2014 season, our fans will be introduced to a lot of fresh, new faces, and we will probably be one of the youngest teams in the country. But I am excited for the growth and stability that is already developing in this team. Lead by our two seniors, Christian Key and Sarah Shelton, we have high expectations for the potential of this group, and the future of our program is very bright. On behalf of our coaches and players, thank you for your support of ORU Women’s Basketball! We are proud to share our team with you. We are committed to the continued success of this program, and we know who we are – TRUE BLUE! Make no little plans here.

In Christ,

Misti Cussen

Five first-time foes and road trips to Kansas, Northwestern and Marquette highlight a challenging 2013-14 schedule. The season culminates in March, as the Golden Eagles make their second trip to Merrell Madness.

ORU returned to the NCAA Tournament in 2012-13 and hoisted the SLC Championship trophy. Seniors Kevi Luper and Jaci Bigham were All-SLC selections, while Christian Key and Sarah Shelton set school records.

In ORU’s first 38 seasons of basketball, the Lady Titans and Golden Eagles have produced 19 1,000-point scorers, 11 20-win campaigns, four All-Americans and six conference tournament championships.

Four ORU players have earned AllAmerican status in the school’s illustrious 38-year women’s basketball history, including former assistant coach Krista Ragan-Binam and 2013 alumnus Kevi Luper.

The Golden Eagles have made six appearances in the NCAA Tournament, college basketball’s grandest stage. Look back at the groups of Golden Eagles that have won conference titles and taken part in March Madness.

ORU EXPERIENCE | COACHES | 2013-14 SQUAD | OPPONENTS | 2012-13 REVIEW | HISTORY

^^^ Now a senior, Tulsa native Christian Key is expected to transition into a marquee role for the Golden Eagles in 2013-14. Key averaged 7.4 points per game and hit 47.5% of her three-point field goal attempts as a junior.

The 2013-14 campaign promises to be a season of change for the Oral Roberts University women’s basketball program, as second-year Head Coach Misti Cussen returns just three letterwinners from last season’s Southland Conference Championship club and bids adieu to a senior class that accounted for 84 victories and more than 5,000 points during their four years as Golden Eagles. But a talented group of 10 newcomers has arrived in South Tulsa, bringing with them a wealth of international and previous collegiate experience. That group, combined with the returning core of Bernadett Balla, Christian Key and Sarah Shelton, has ORU confident that 2013-14 isn’t a typical rebuilding year. In fact, Cussen’s team is poised and ready to defend their Southland Conference Championship from a season ago. POINT GUARD Who’s Back? The graduation of three-time all-conference selection Jaci Bigham leaves a significant hole in the ORU lineup. Bigham accounted for 1,505 points and a program-record 668 assists during her four seasons as a Golden Eagle. The only returning Golden Eagle with point guard experience is Key, who logged occasional minutes at the position in each of the past two seasons, although she will primarily play the two-guard spot again in 2013-14. Who’s New? Denton, Texas native Teana Ogden and Booker T. Washington product Kaylan Mayberry will each see minutes at the point guard position in 201314. Ogden was a two-time Region MVP at Billy Ryan HS, one of the finest prep programs in Texas. Mayberry, meanwhile, was named Tulsa World AllMetro Player of the Year after leading Booker T. Washington to the OSSAA Class 6A State Championship last season. Mayberry was named MVP of the State Tournament after hitting five three-pointers in the title game, and she averaged 11.9 points and 3.4 steals per game in her final prep season.

2013 SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE CHAMPIONS

Freshman April Glisson, a Sapulpa High alum, could also see minutes at the point guard position. SHOOTING GUARD Who’s Back? Key experienced a breakout season as a junior in 2012-13, more than doubling her scoring average to 7.4 points per game. The Tulsa native shot 47.5% from three-point range, tops in the Southland Conference and an ORU program record for a single season, and she scored in double-figures on nine separate occasions. ORU will count on Key to raise the bar yet again after the departure of three-time Summit League Player of the Year Kevi Luper, who graduated as ORU’s career scoring leader, at 2,867 points. Milestone Watch Key enters her final season with 99 three-point field goals and needs just 29 treys to enter ORU’s career top-10. The Victory Christian School alum starts the year as the only Golden Eagle in program history with a three-point percentage over 40%, at 40.7% through three years. Who’s New? Newcomer Alexus Wilson looks to make a splash in her rookie season after leading Muskogee HS to a pair of OSSAA Class 6A State Tournaments. SMALL FORWARD Who’s Back? Four-year stalwart Savanna Buck’s absence will be felt at the small forward spot, where no major contributor returns from 2012-13. Buck scored more than 700 points in her four-year career, which included a 2011 Summit League Sixth Woman of the Year designation. The only returners that have played the small forward spot are the versatile Key and Balla, who will primarily play elsewhere.

ORU EXPERIENCE | COACHES | 2013-14 SQUAD | OPPONENTS | 2012-13 REVIEW | HISTORY Who’s New? The arrival of Coweta native Jenni Bryan has long been anticipated by the Golden Eagle faithful, and the Oklahoma State transfer will make her ORU debut in 2013-14 after redshirting last season. Bryan played in 57 career games for the Cowgirls and averaged 2.5 points per game. Bryan brings toughness and intensity to the ORU program, and she’s also a deft outside shooter who drained 34.3% of her three-point attempts at OSU. Panola College transfer Atoe’ Jackson will also see plenty of minutes at the three spot. Jackson led Panola in scoring and rebounding as a sophomore, averaging 11.6 points and 6.6 boards per game. POWER FORWARD Who’s Back? An inside-out threat with a polished offensive skill set, the elder Balla looks to shoulder an increased scoring load as she heads into her junior season. The Hungary native averaged 6.5 points as a freshman in 2011-12, when she earned a Summit League All-Newcomer spot. That average dipped to 5.1 points per game last season, though Balla showed flashes of brilliance, including a 26-point effort against Arkansas and 17 points against Nebraska. Milestone Watch Balla enters the year with 33 blocked shots and needs 49 more to break into ORU’s career top-10. Who’s New? Marietta native Tysia Manuel suited up for one of the nation’s top junior college programs in her first two collegiate seasons, and she brings plenty of big-game experience to the ORU roster. Manuel averaged 8.1 points and 4.1 rebounds in 2012-13, helping Butler CC win 26 games and advance to the NJCAA Region VI Semifinals. Freshmen Dorottya Balla and Noora Jaervikangas bring more than 100 combined international appearances to the Golden Eagle roster, and both players have the size and shooting touch to create matchup nightmares on the wing or the low block. The 6-1 Balla, sister of Bernadett, played for her native

land of Hungary at the 2010 U16 and 2012 U18 European Championships, and she earned regular minutes for PEAC-Pecs, one of Hungary’s top club teams, in 2012-13. Jaervikangas, at 6-0, represented Finland at the 2012 U18 European Championship, scoring a team-high 10.3 points per game. She was named the top youth player at Finnish club team Forssan Alku after helping them place 3rd in the 2012-13 Finnish Championship Series. CENTER Who’s Back? Perhaps the biggest breakout star of the 2012-13 ORU season, Shelton is back for her final collegiate campaign. The SMU transfer fit perfectly into the Golden Eagle lineup after sitting out the 2011-12 season, earning an Honorable Mention All-Southland Conference selection. Shelton averaged 8.8 points and 5.6 rebounds per game last season, with an average of 10.8 points per game in Southland play, and she set a Golden Eagle program record by shooting 65.5% from the field. The 6-3 powerhouse is primed to dominate the low post as a senior after racking up five double-doubles in SLC play as a junior. Milestone Watch At times last season, Shelton was a massive shot-blocking presence. Never was that more evident than the Southland Tournament Championship Game, when she swatted three second half Sam Houston State shots, or the NCAA Tournament matchup with Tennessee, where she blocked six shots in the first half alone. Overall, Shelton blocked 34 shots last year, and she’ll advance into ORU’s career top-10 with 48 more blocks this season. Who’s New? Colombia import Carolina Lopez adds serious low-post size to the ORU roster after spending two seasons at Tyler JC. The 6-2 transfer averaged 7.1 points and 3.8 rebounds per game in her sophomore season. COACHING STAFF Who’s Back? Cussen’s first season as head coach was a smashing success, as Oral Roberts won the PSO Mayors Cup back from crosstown rival Tulsa, grabbed the SLC regular season title on the season’s final day, won the SLC Tournament Championship in their first appearance and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the sixth time in program history. Assistant Bojan Jankovic, who spent the summer coaching the Serbian National Team to a 4th place finish at the European Championship, is back for his fourth season on the Golden Eagle bench. Fellow assistant Royce Samuels returns for a second year after tasting postseason glory in his first season with ORU, while Golden Eagle alumnus Kyron Stokes has been promoted from director of operations to an assistant coach position. Who’s New? Two Golden Eagle women’s basketball legends will make their coaching debuts with the 2013-14 ORU squad. 2010 alumnus Janae Voelker, the 9th-leading scorer in school history, will serve as director of operations for the 2013-14 season. Jaci Bigham will also transition to a coaching role, serving as director of player development after completing her playing career last season. For their careers, Voelker and Bigham combined for seven allconference selections and more than 2,900 points.

^^^ A skilled offensive player, Bernadett Balla is expected to be a key contributor to the Golden Eagle squad after averaging 5.1 points per game as a sophomore

ORU EXPERIENCE | COACHES | 2013-14 SQUAD | OPPONENTS | 2012-13 REVIEW | HISTORY

NATIONAL BROADCAST APPEARANCES With a challenging national schedule and a reputation as one of the country’s top mid-major programs, the ORU women’s basketball team received an unprecedented amount of national television and internet coverage in 2012-13. The Golden Eagles were featured on six national broadcasts last season, a program record, and won three of those games. The highlight of the schedule was an NCAA Tournament appearance against Tennessee, which attracted an audience of more the 600,000 viewers on ESPN2. ORU also played three nationally-distributed games on ESPN3 through the Southland Digital Network, including SLC Tournament victories over McNeese State and Sam Houston State. Finally, ORU’s game at nationally-ranked Nebraska was carried on BTN.com and the showdown with defending National Champion Baylor was televised on Fox Sports Net. That national broadcast exposure will continue in 2013-14, as no fewer than four ORU games will be covered nationally. Included in the schedule are the November 10 contest against Kansas, the January 23 home matchup with Stephen F. Austin and the January 30 trip to Nicholls State. All three games will be broadcast by ESPN3.

In an era of considerable change in intercollegiate athletics, the Southland Conference continues to be a model of innovation, stability and consistent achievement as it celebrates a half-century of the academic and athletic accomplishments of its member institutions. Commemorating its 50th anniversary in 2013, the Southland Conference has transformed itself into a dynamic and respected consortium of 14 member universities in four states. Beginning with a historic meeting of five institutions in Dallas on March 15, 1963, the Southland Conference set on an extraordinary course that has proven successful well into its five decades of existence. The successful transformation continues, as the Southland Conference welcomed the addition of Oral Roberts University in 201213, marking the league’s first entry into the state of Oklahoma. Also, on July 1, 2013, the Southland welcomed four additional members: Abilene Christian University, Houston Baptist University, the University of Incarnate Word in San Antonio, and the University of New Orleans. In addition to its newest members, the Southland Conference also consists of the University of Central Arkansas, Lamar University, McNeese State University, Nicholls State University, Northwestern State University, Sam Houston State University, Southeastern Louisiana University, Stephen F. Austin State University and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. An original Southland member, Abilene Christian rejoins the league as one of the most decorated athletic programs in NCAA history, and the addition of Houston Baptist, Incarnate Word and New Orleans gives the Southland a regular competitive presence in the key metropolitan areas of Houston, San Antonio and New Orleans. Southland cities encompass approximately 14.5 million people, and seven of its television markets rank among the top 100 in the U.S. All told, the membership of the Southland encompasses nearly 140,000 current students and an alumni base of nearly 800,000. Famous alums from current Southland Conference schools include former CBS

Austin), and Ronnie Dunn (Abilene Christian), television personality and actress Ellen DeGeneres (New Orleans), current NFL standouts Lardarius Webb (Nicholls State), Terrence McGee (Northwestern State), and Daniel Manning (Abilene Christian), professional golfers Shawn Stefani and Chris Stroud (both Lamar) and Colin Montgomerie (HBU), award-winning filmmaker Richard Linklater (Sam Houston State), American Idol winner Kris Allen (Central Arkansas), NFL Hall of Famer Jackie Harris (Northwestern State), former NFL standouts Bobby Hebert (Northwestern State), Gary Barbaro (Nicholls State), Wilbert Montgomery (Abilene Christian) and Gary Reasons (Northwestern State), former MLB stars Darryl Hamilton (Nicholls State) and Kevin Millar (Lamar), NCAA football coach Charlie Strong (Central Arkansas), TV personality Kathie Lee Gifford (Oral Roberts), actors John Larroquette (New Orleans), and Ricardo Chavira and Jesse Borrego (both UIW) and NFL coaching legend O.A. “Bum” Phillips (Lamar and Stephen F. Austin). The Southland sponsors 17 championship sports, all at the NCAA Division I level. The eight men’s sports include baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis, and indoor and outdoor track and field. The women compete for nine championships in basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, indoor and outdoor track and field, and volleyball. The conference earns automatic qualification to NCAA championships in baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, football, men’s and women’s golf, women’s soccer, softball, men’s and

women’s tennis, and volleyball. Continuing its tradition of innovation, the league launched the Southland Conference Television Network in the fall of 2008 and has broadcast more than 160 events. The network has expanded its reach to roughly 13 million households throughout Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma in recent years, and has also gained national viewership through ESPN3 and Fox College Sports. In its first five years, the network has received recognition for its work, earning numerous College Sports Media and Telly Awards. The Southland Conference, in conjunction with the city of Frisco, Texas, and Hunt Sports Group, also serves as the host to the NCAA Division I Football Championship Game in Frisco, which has been home to the conference headquarters since 2006. The game is played at Frisco’s FC Dallas Stadium, and after a successful three-year run, the partnership was rewarded with a three-year renewal to serve as the national championship host site through the 2015 season. Men’s basketball has experienced a tremendous amount of success during the Southland’s 50 years. The league has sent four teams to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen, as well as a squad to the NIT Final Four. Basketball stars Karl Malone, Joe Dumars, Jeff Foster, Dwight “Bo” Lamar, Andrew Toney and Mike Oliver played in the Southland Conference. In 2006, Northwestern State, playing as the No. 14 seed in the NCAA tournament, defeated No. 3 seed Iowa, 64-63, in first-round action. The league also saw three of its current teams, including newcomer Oral Roberts, reach the postseason in 2012. Coaches such as Billy Tubbs, Mike Vining, Scotty Robertson, Jack Martin, Andy Russo, Bob Marlin, Danny Kaspar, Mike McConathy, Bobby Paschal and Pat Foster have led successful teams in the Southland. In women’s basketball, the Southland also has its share of tradition with former member Louisiana-Monroe advancing to the 1985 NCAA Women’s Final Four, and Stephen F. Austin sustaining itself as one of the most successful programs in the history of the sport. In 2008, the Ladyjacks became the eighth program in NCAA Division I history to record more than 800 wins. In each of the last four seasons, at least three Southland teams reached the postseason, and in 2012, four women’s squads earned postseason berths. A Southland team has played in the WNIT 13 times, including each of the last seven years. Women’s basketball all-stars have included Eun Jung Lee, Lisa

Ingram, Portia Hill, Deneen Parker, Katrina Price, and Joskeen Garner, and coaches such as Gary Blair, Linda Sharp, James Smith and Linda Harper. Baseball has emerged as a constant Southland Conference strength with the league earning numerous national rankings and NCAA tournament berths. The Southland consistently ranks among the top-10 conferences in the country. In 2011, 50 of the league’s 150 non-conference victories came against the Big 12, Conference USA, Sun Belt and SEC. Major leaguers such as Ben Sheets, Micah Hoffpauir, Hunter Pence, David Segui, Brian Lawrence, Ben Broussard, Chuck Finley, Jerald Clark, and Terry Matthews once played in the Southland. In 2012, Southeastern Louisiana’s Stefan Lopez became the league’s second winner of the national Stopper of the Year Award, which is selected by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers. Sam Houston State’s Luke Prihoda won the award in 2007. Only the Big 12 has had more players win this award. The Southland also fares well each year in the Major League Draft, but for the first time in conference history, two Southland players were selected in the first round of the 2013 draft. Stephen F. Austin shortstop Hunter Dozier was picked eighth by the Kansas City Royals making the Southland player and hitter of the year the league’s top draft pick in any sport. Later in the first round, the Texas Rangers selected Oral Roberts right-handed pitcher Alex Gonzalez, Southland pitcher of the year, with the 23rd overall pick. The Southland has had eight first-round picks in its history.

In 2011, Lamar mentor Jim Gilligan became the first Southland coach to reach 1,200 career victories, ranking him sixth-best in the NCAA among active Division I coaches and 24th all-time. He leads an impressive list of coaches who have patrolled Southland Conference dugouts, including Mark Johnson, Mike Bianco, John Cohen, Mitch Gaspard, Smoke Laval, Butch McBroom, Pat Patterson, Tony Robichaux, Dave Van Horn and Jim Wells. The Southland also has a proud history in volleyball with former member Texas-Arlington representing the conference numerous times in the NCAA tournament, including a run to the NCAA Volleyball Final Four in 1989. Track and field has also served as a proud asset for the Southland Conference as the league has produced numerous national champions and Olympic medalists. The Southland boasts 28 men and three women student-athletes who have won NCAA track and field national championships, including Northwestern State’s Trecey Rew, who won the women’s discus in 2011, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi’s Shadrack Songok (10,000-meter run) in 2007 and 2008 and McNeese State’s Brad Gebauer (pole vault) in 2007. The league has also produced U.S. Olympic track and field medalists Earl Bell, Thomas Hill, Al Joyner, Charles Austin, and Liudmila Litvinova, along with other Olympians. With the addition of 10 more All-Americans in 2012, the league continues to find national success in both indoor and outdoor track and field. In the indoor circuit, the Southland boasts 66 unique all-time All-Americans that have won a combined 11 national championships. Likewise, in the outdoor season, the league has seen 158 different All-Americans, including 128 men and 30 women, who have combined to win 21 national championships. Golf has traditionally been a strong Southland sport as exemplified by Lamar men’s golfer Chris Stroud, who finished third individually at the 2003 NCAA National Championship and is a member of the PGA Tour. Both Stroud and former Southeastern Louisiana golfer Hugo Leon competed in

the 2010 U.S. Open. Lamar alum Shawn Stefani had a pair of top seven finishes through the midway point of the 2013 PGA tour. The league has sent multiple teams into postseason play on numerous occasions, including in 2012 when three Southland teams – Lamar, Southeastern Louisiana and Texas-Arlington – competed in the NCAA tournament. Additionally, during the past five seasons the Southland has sent 12 golfers to compete as individuals in regional play with five in 2009, three more in 2010, one each in 2011 and 2012 and two in 2013. Lamar won a pair of NCAA Division II national championships in 1967 and 1968, and also produced PGA player Ronnie Black. In 2005, Lamar’s Dawie Van Der Walt finished fourth individually and Lamar tied for 12th place at the NCAA Men’s Golf Championship, before the Cardinals tied for ninth in 2006 and tied for third in 2007. Former Lamar golfer Casey Clendenon advanced to the semifinals of the U.S. Amateur in 2007. In women’s tennis, Southeastern Louisiana won 46 consecutive conference matches during a four-year period that began in 2005, while in men’s tennis Texas A&M-Corpus Christi has played in the NCAA tournament five times in the last seven years. The conference has increased sponsorship and championship opportunities for female student-athletes in recent years, adding women’s golf and soccer as league sports. In women’s soccer, Stephen F. Austin midfielder Kylie Louw became the first player in conference history to earn All-America honors, when she earned third-team mention by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. A member of the South Africa Olympic team during the 2012 London Olympics, she also garnered first-team Academic All-America Honors from the College Sports Information Directors of America. The Ladyjacks have gone 72-12-8 (.826) in conference play during the last 10 seasons.

Lamar leads all league teams with four team championships during that span. The Southland Conference has repeatedly demonstrated its commitment to the academic and athletic success of its student-athletes. With the F.L. McDonald Postgraduate Scholarship Award, the league annually honors one male and one female scholar-athlete with a stipend for postgraduate study. The Scholar-Athlete Award is given to each institution’s male and female student-athlete with the highest grade-point average. The Steve McCarty Citizenship Award, initiated in 2005-06 and named after the former Stephen F. Austin athletic director, properly recognizes accomplishments off the court for a male and female student-athlete. Also, student-athletes with grade-point averages above 3.0 are honored on the Southland’s annual All-Academic teams and Commissioner’s Honor Roll. A record 979 studentathletes appeared on the honor roll following the 2012 spring semester, and total of 1,545 student-athletes earned a spot on the honor roll at the end of

While successful on the fields and courts, the Southland Conference has repeatedly demonstrated its commitment to the academic and athletic success of its student-athletes. The conference continues to make great strides in the classroom. During the last seven years, no other Division I conference has improved its Academic Progress Rate as well as the Southland Conference has. In fact, in 2009-10, the Southland ranked 10th among the 31 Division I leagues in men’s basketball APR. The academic progress the league has shown ultimately leads to higher graduation rates for our student-athletes. In addition to providing expanding opportunities for student-athletes, the Southland Conference and its member institutions are very involved in various community outreach programs. Many of these programs provide positive life skills training such as academics, citizenship and leadership to school-aged students in Southland communities.

CUSSEN

Head Coach | 2nd Season | Southern Nazarene ‘93 | Career Record: 18-13

On April 27, 2012, long-time assistant coach Misti Cussen was named the 10th head coach in the history of the Oral Roberts University women’s basketball program.

Cussen’s first season as head coach was one of the most successful debut campaigns in ORU women’s basketball history. Her 18 victories were the most for an ORU rookie head coach since Dixie Woodall won 31 games in 1977-78.

Less than a year later, she has already led the Golden Eagles to glory. Cussen guided the Golden Eagles to the top of the Southland Conference in her first season in charge of the ORU program, as the team won both the regular season and tournament titles in their first campaign as league members. ORU was 18-13 in Cussen’s first season as head coach, with a 15-5 record against Southland Conference opponents. Under Cussen’s direction, Kevi Luper and Jaci Bigham earned All-Southland honors as seniors, while Luper was named Most Valuable Player at the SLC Tournament.

Cussen spent 16 seasons as the program’s top assistant coach, ranking as one of the nation’s longest-tenured assistants at one school. She also served as the director of operations and the summer camp director. During Cussen’s tenure as an assistant coach, ORU experienced an unprecedented run of success on the court. The Golden Eagles won five Summit League Tournament titles and a pair of Summit League regular season titles during Cussen’s time as an assistant, and they made the program’s first five trips to the NCAA Tournament.

Cussen led the Golden Eagles through a brutal opening stretch in her first season as head coach. After playing a non-conference schedule that one publication ranked as the 13th-toughest in the nation, with road trips to nationally-ranked clubs from Baylor, Nebraska and DePaul, ORU was just 3-8 heading into the Southland Conference schedule. But Cussen didn’t let the Golden Eagles fold the tents after their rough start, leading the team to their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2008. Under Cussen’s watch, the Golden Eagles won eight of their last ten games, including a pair of SLC Tournament victories. “I am very grateful to Mr. Carter for this opportunity, and I can’t wait to begin this new chapter as the head coach at ORU,” said Cussen upon her appointment as head coach. “I love this University, and I am thrilled to continue coaching at a place where I have spent so many great years. I am also excited to continue working with such an outstanding group of young women, and I look forward to continued success in the future.” HEAD COACH MISTI CUSSEN

Cussen also led ORU to three WNIT appearances as an assistant, including a pair of WNIT wins in 2011 over TCU and Tulane that were the program’s first postseason tournament victories in 28 years. ORU achieved 273 victories during Cussen’s time as an assistant coach, including five 20-win seasons. In 2011-12, the Golden Eagles posted their third consecutive 20-win season, a first for the program in nearly 30 years. As both an assistant and the program’s head coach, Cussen has helped the Golden Eagles to 84 victories since 2009, the program’s best four-year stretch since 1976-80. Cussen has recruited and coached some of the finest players in ORU history during her time in Tulsa. All-American Kisa Bradley was part of Cussen’s first ORU team, in 1996, while Oklahoma natives Krista Binam and Kevi Luper have also earned All-American status during Cussen’s tenure. Seven Golden Eagles have earned conference player of the year honors under Cussen, including three-time winners Ragan and Luper, and 27 of Cussen’s student-athletes have earned all-conference designations.

During the seventeen season that she has been on the Golden Eagle bench, Cussen has coached 55 conference players of the week, 12 conference all-newcomer team selections, five conference newcomers of the year, two conference defensive players of the year and a pair of Naismith Trophy Watch List nominees. “Misti Cussen is the right coach for this program,” said ORU Athletic Director Mike Carter. “She has all the attributes we look for in a coach for our women’s basketball team. She is an outstanding recruiter with strong ties in Oklahoma and Texas and has been a vital part of our team for the last 16 years. Misti has demonstrated her ability to lead the program and to build upon the successes that we have enjoyed these past many seasons.” As a player, Cussen began her collegiate career at the University of Kansas (198991) before transferring to Southern Nazarene to finish her final two years. Cussen joined the SNU coaching staff in the spring of 1996. During the summer of 2006, Cussen had the opportunity to serve as a head coach for Athletes in Action, as she took a team of current and former college players on a month-long tour of India. During their stay, the team played in various exhibition contests against local universities, while also volunteering in other humanitarian relief efforts. Cussen received her Bachelor of Arts degree in speech communication from SNU in 1993 before earning a master of arts in communication education in 1994. An Oklahoma native, Cussen prepped at El Reno High School where she was an All State selection, named to the Super Five team, and the FCA Female Athlete of the Year. Misti and her husband, Kyle, currently live in Broken Arrow with their two children, Cassie (9) and Caia (5).

BOJAN

JANKOVIC

Assistant Coach | 4th Season | University of the Ozarks ‘06 PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITIES: INTERNATIONAL RECRUITING, SCHEDULING

Bojan Jankovic, the former head women’s basketball coach at Centenary, is in his fourth season on the ORU women’s basketball staff. Jankovic joined the ORU staff on August 31, 2010, and he helped guide the Golden Eagles to the Southland Conference Championship in 2013. At ORU, Jankovic is responsible for international recruiting and scheduling, and he does individual work with the Golden Eagle post players. He also performs a key role in ORU’s game day preparation. Jankovic plays a vital role in the development of ORU’s post players. The former professional center led a group of Golden Eagle post players that led the Southland Conference in blocked shots in 2012-13, and his guidance helped transform then-junior Sarah Shelton into an AllConference level low block presence last season. Since coming to ORU, Jankovic has helped guide the Golden Eagle program to a trio of successful seasons.

MIKE

CARTER

Director of Athletics | 20th Season

To say Mike Carter had his work cut out for him when he accepted the director of athletics position at Oral Roberts University on Nov. 7, 1994, is quite an understatement. It was hard enough for Carter to leave a successful business and sports law practice to embark on a career change. Combined with the fact ORU was just beginning its second year back to active NCAA Division I status with only three full-time support personnel and no conference affiliation, and his endeavor was even more challenging. However, nearly 20 years later, it’s clear that Carter’s guidance - along with a strong commitment to athletics by the University - has led the department to dramatic enhancements and unprecedented success. His leadership earned him 2011-12 Division I Central Region Under Armour AD of the Year honors. Under Carter’s leadership, the department is now properly staffed with support personnel. During his tenure he has developed positions in athletic development, business administration, compliance, academic services, sports medicine, strength training, marketing and media relations. All of these support services have proven to be necessary for ORU to compete successfully in today’s world of Division I athletics. Another key component in ORU’s athletic success was acceptance into the Summit League (formerly the Mid-Continent Conference) on July 1, 1997. The affiliation came after years of hard work and dedication by Carter and University leaders. Beginning in 2012-13, Carter led ORU into a new age as the department joined the Southland Conference. While in the Summit League, the Golden Eagles were a perennial favorite for the league’s Commissioner’s Cup, awarded to the league’s best athletic department. ORU captured nine Cups in 15 years. Over the past 16 years the Golden Eagles have totaled 79 NCAA Tournament

2013 SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE CHAMPIONS

appearances, two NIT appearances, three WNIT appearances, 84 AllAmerica selections, and three Olympians. In 2008, Andretti Bain became ORU’s first national champion in any sport when he captured NCAA titles in both the indoor and outdoor 400 meters. Bain went on to win a silver medal at the Beijing Olympics as part of the Bahamas 4x400 meter relay team. Pole vaulter Jack Whitt became the second National Champion, winning the 2012 Outdoor Pole Vault Championship. ORU’s athletic success hasn’t just been limited to wins on the field. The Golden Eagles have been extremely successful in the classroom as well, earning an overall GPA of 3.0 or better in 14 out of the last 15 years. Part of the reason for those honors was Carter’s creation of the Eli Academic Learning Center, one of the many facility upgrades he has directed. Others include the construction and/or improvement of the volleyball, baseball, basketball and soccer facilities that have assured ORU’s athletic facilities can rival most NCAA Division I universities. Yet, Carter isn’t resting on his laurels. New men’s and women’s basketball locker rooms, women’s basketball offices and a sports medicine facility in the Mabee Center have been constructed. ORU opened the Golden Eagle Sports Complex in 2006, a multi-purpose facility located at J.L. Johnson Stadium which features a 2,500-square foot strength and conditioning center; the Grand Slam Room; and new offices for the baseball coaching staff. A 35,000-square foot indoor practice facility opened as part of the Golden Eagle Sports Complex in the summer of 2009. The Mabee Center basketball arena received a new state-of-the-art video scoreboard in the fall of 2008, cementing its place as the finest arena in the Southland Conference.. Carter and his wife, Paula have two grown children, Lizz and Cason, and two grandchildren. They are also the parents of late son, Scott, who died in December 1993 of childhood cancer.

The 38th season of hoops in South Tulsa featured a mix elements both fresh and familiar, as the Golden Eagles joined a new conference and welcomed a new head coach while returning one of the most accomplished senior trios in program history. Through it all, the goal remained the same: win a conference championship and advance to the NCAA Tournament. Though a brutal early-season schedule and the pitfalls of playing in a new league threatened to derail ORU, that goal was realized in glorious fashion, forever ensuring that 2012-13 will go down a season for the ages.

ORU JOINS SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE The building blocks for a legendary 2012-13 season were laid in place long before the campaign tipped off in late October. In fact, ORU took their first steps towards a historic campaign on October 25, 2011, when the school formally joined the Southland Conference. The move came after 15 seasons in the Mid-Continent Conference/Summit League, which included five women’s basketball tournament titles and two women’s basketball regular season championships.

2013 SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE CHAMPIONS

CUSSEN ELEVATED TO HEAD COACH POSITION The ORU women’s basketball program faced a head coaching vacancy for the first time in 16 years when Jerry Finkbeiner accepted the head coaching position at Utah State University in late April. Finkbeiner had accumulated 273 victories since coming to ORU from Southern Nazarene in 1996, making him the program’s career leader in victories. ORU Director of Athletics Mike Carter waited less than a week before finding Finkbeiner’s replacement, and on April 27, 2012, longtime assistant Misti Cussen was chosen from a lengthy pool of nationally-recognized candidates to be the 10th head coach in program history. Cussen had been with the program since accompanying Finkbeiner from SNU in 1996 and she had played a vital role in each of ORU’s five prior NCAA Tournament appearances. GOLDEN EAGLES MAKE SIXTH NCAA TOURNAMENT APPEARANCE Oral Roberts advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the sixth time in program history, earning the No. 15 seed in the Oklahoma City Regional by virtue of their victory in the Southland Conference Tournament. ORU traveled to Knoxville, Tenn., for a First Round matchup with 2nd-seeded Tennessee, where they gave a spirited performance in front of nearly 7,000 spectators and a national television

The Golden Eagles scored the first four points of the game and led the Lady Vols early in the first half, but in the end Tennessee was able to take an 83-62 victory. Two individual performances stood out from the NCAA Tournament trip. In her final collegiate game, Kevi Luper led all scorers with 20 points. Sarah Shelton, meanwhile, blocked a career-best six shots. Led by Shelton, ORU matched a ThompsonBoling record for blocked shots by a Tennessee opponent, with 10. ORU WINS SLC TOURNAMENT DEBUT The Golden Eagles were the top seed at the 2013 Southland Conference Tournament in Katy, Texas, and they won two hard-fought games to claim the SLC Tournament Championship in their Merrell Madness debut. Oral Roberts is just the third school to take the SLC Tournament title in their first season as league members. ORU’s top seed gave them a bye into the tournament semifinals, where they faced two-time defending champion McNeese State. Though Kevi Luper fouled out of the game with 9:54 left, several clutch shots down the stretch from Christian Key carried the Golden Eagles to a 79-66 victory. Luper and Jaci Bigham led ORU with 17 points each, while Key finished with 13. The win booked ORU a spot in the championship game, where fellow regular season champion Sam Houston State was waiting. ORU trailed the Bearkats with five minutes left but took the lead for good on a Savanna Buck jumper with 2:27 remaining. The Golden Eagles held on for a 72-66 victory. Luper scored 26 points in the championship game to earn Tournament MVP honors, while Bigham added 17 points and was an All-Tournament pick.

The SFA win jumpstarted a closing stretch where ORU went 6-1 in its final seven regular season games, earning the team a share of the SLC regular season championship. Oral Roberts is just the third Southland Conference member to capture the league’s women’s basketball regular season title in its first season as conference members, and the .722 conference winning percentage is the fourthhighest by a first-year member in the conference’s 31-year women’s basketball history.

ORU EXPERIENCE | COACHES | 2013-14 SQUAD | OPPONENTS | 2012-13 REVIEW | HISTORY ORU CLINCHES TOP TOURNAMENT SEED ON SEASON’S FINAL DAY ORU’s dramatic late-season rally reached its crescendo on March 9, the final day of regular season play. Entering the day, the Golden Eagles needed a victory over Central Arkansas and a Sam Houston State loss to Northwestern State in order to clinch a share of the SLC regular season crown. ORU also needed two other results, a McNeese loss to Nicholls State and a Lamar victory over Southeastern Louisiana, in order to clinch the top seed in the SLC Tournament in Katy, Texas. The day couldn’t have gone better. Sam Houston was upset by Northwestern State in the first game of the day to be completed, 59-50, opening the door for a regular season title. Then Nicholls held off McNeese, 65-59, and Lamar dispatched Southeastern, 72-61, with both games going final as ORU was on the court against UCA. With 5:00 left in their game against UCA, the Golden Eagles held an 18-point lead over the Sugar Bears as games in Hammond and Thibodaux went final. By the time seniors Jaci Bigham, Kevi Luper and Savanna Buck were removed from the game in the final seconds of a 68-53 victory, word had spread to the ORU bench: the Golden Eagles would be the No. 1 seed in Katy. SENIORS WIN FINAL MAYOR’S CUP APPEARANCE ORU’s senior class played three incredibly close games with crosstown rival Tulsa from 2009-11, winning an overtime battle as freshmen before falling by single-digits the next two years. Their final chance to retake the PSO Mayor’s Cup came in the season-opener, on November 9, and the Golden Eagles came up with a 64-53 win. Kevi Luper scored a game-high 23 points in her final Mayor’s Cup game, while Jaci Bigham added six points and Savanna Buck set a career-high with 12 rebounds.

19.6% from the field, an ORU record for lowest field goal percentage allowed in a game.

That mind set manifested itself in two record-breaking performances. On December 5, the Golden Eagles trounced Evangel, 96-34.

KEY SETS THREE-POINT MARK A role player in her first two seasons with the Golden Eagles, Tulsa native Christian Key emerged as a bona fide outside scorer in her junior season. Key averaged 7.4 points per game and led the SLC by hitting 47.5% of her three-point field goal attempts. The mark was a new ORU season record. ORU Single-Season 3-Point FG Percentage 1.

Prior to the year, the Adair native was named to the Naismith Trophy watch list for the second season in a row, and she received votes for the Associated Press Preseason All-America team. Luper was the subject of a feature article by ESPN.com’s Graham Hays in November, and later in the month she was named a candidate for the prestigious Senior CLASS Award. Luper was eventually named one of 10 finalists for the Senior CLASS Award, earning Senior CLASS All-America status. She ended the season on two more All-America teams, earning Mid-Major AllAmerica status from College Sports Madness and Full Court Press.

ORU EXPERIENCE | COACHES | 2013-14 SQUAD | OPPONENTS | 2012-13 REVIEW | HISTORY heading into Southland Conference play. But the reason for the struggles was simple: ORU’s preconference schedule ranked as one of the most grueling in the nation. The Golden Eagles faced four NCAA Tournament teams in the season’s first two months and two more clubs that reached the WNIT. Included in the non-conference slate were road meetings with defending National Champion Baylor and nationally-ranked Nebraska, along with road dates at Louisiana Tech, DePaul and Missouri State. At the beginning of conference play, RPIRankings.com credited ORU with the 13th-most difficult non-conference schedule in the country. That difficult slate, by far the toughest among Southland Conference teams, proved to be an advantage late in the season, as the battle-tested Golden Eagles captured SLC regular season and tournament hardware. GOLDEN EAGLES LEAD SLC FROM DOWNTOWN In their first season as Southland Conference members, ORU ended the year as the league’s top three-point shooting team. ORU knocked down 37.7% of their three-point shots, well ahead of McNeese State, who shot 32.8% from downtown. SENIORS CAP CAREER WITH ONE FINAL MABEE CENTER VICTORY ORU held Senior Night on February 19 and highlighted the event with an emotional 76-69 victory over Central Arkansas. Seniors accounted for 52 of the team’s 76 points, with Kevi Luper scoring 33, Jaci Bigham adding 12 and Savanna Buck chipping in seven. The victory was one final feather in the cap of

a senior class that owned the Mabee Center for four seasons. ORU was 45-10 at the Mabee Center during the four-year run of Luper, Bigham and Buck, including a 10-2 mark in 2012-13. Against conference opponents, ORU’s Class of 2013 posted a 33-3 record at home. Overall, ORU’s Class of 2013 teamed up to win 84 games in their four seasons as Golden Eagles, the most wins by an ORU senior class since the 1983 class finished with 80 total wins. The trio combined for 24 conference player of the week awards, seven all-conference honors and three conference player of the year honors. They set 31 team and career records at ORU, with Luper setting ORU’s career scoring record and Bigham holding the school’s career assist record. CUSSEN’S DEBUT SEASON RANKS AMONG ORU’S BEST ORU went 18-13 in the first season of Misti Cussen’s head coaching tenure, finishing with a .581 winning percentage. That ranks Cussen as the most successful first-year ORU head coach in over 30 years and the 4th-most successful ORU rookie coach of all time. Winning Percentage • First-year ORU Coaches 1.

BIGHAM, LUPER EARN ACADEMIC LAURELS Not just stars on the court, seniors Jaci Bigham and Kevi Luper were honored for their classroom achievements with spots on the Southland Conference All-Academic Team. Bigham, a communications major, finished her college career with a 3.72 GPA, while Luper, a business major, finished with a GPA of 3.58. As a club, eight of the 12 players on ORU’s roster finished the season with a GPA over 3.00, and the Golden Eagles posted a cumulative GPA of 3.26. ORU MAKES TV APPEARANCES ORU was a fixture on national broadcasts in 2012-13, playing six games in front of a national audience. The Golden Eagles went 3-0 in games carried by ESPN3, with victories over Lamar on January 24, McNeese State on March 15 and Sam Houston State in the SLC Championship Game on March 16. The Golden Eagles were also featured on a BTN.com broadcast when they faced Nebraska on December 20. Two of ORU’s games were televised nationally. On December 12, the Golden Eagles tangled with defending national champion Baylor on Fox Sports Southwest Plus. Finally, the NCAA Tournament game against Tennessee was broadcast by ESPN2, with a television viewing audience of over 604,000.

TULSA, Okla. - Harding University built a 13-point halftime lead and never looked back, stunning Oral Roberts University, 68-54, in ORU’s 2012-13 exhibition opener. The setback is the first for the Golden Eagles to a non-NCAA Division I opponent since a 66-63 loss to East Texas Baptist on February 7, 1994.

TULSA, Okla. - Oral Roberts University was in danger of a second straight exhibition loss before a 19-0 2nd half run rescued the Golden Eagles, helping them to a 74-54 victory over Oklahoma Baptist. Kevi Luper led the Golden Eagles with 25 points, eight rebounds and eight steals, while freshman Taylor Cooper added 16 points and four steals. ORU shot 43.7% from the floor, including a 54.1% mark in the second half.

Kevi Luper was the only Golden Eagle in double figures, with 21 points on 8-for-19 shooting. Savanna Buck and Sarah Shelton each tallied a team-best six rebounds.

Jaci Bigham made her 2012-13 debut after missing Monday’s exhibition opener. The senior was a major catalyst for the Golden Eagles, dishing 12 assists.

The loss came in Head Coach Misti Cussen’s debut game in charge of the Golden Eagle program. Shana Holmes led the Bisons with 17 points, while Montana Lewis and Arielle Saunders each scored 12 points. The visitors gained their biggest advantage at the free throw line, where they were 18-of-23 (78.3%) and ORU was just 4-of-10 (40.0%). ORU got off to a rough start, missing 13 of their first 20 shots. The Bisons capitalized, taking a 24-15 lead at the 5:48 mark on a Holmes three-pointer, one of two longrange shots the sophomore hit on the evening.

A 68-54 exhibition loss to Harding on October 29 put a damper on Misti Cussen’s head coaching debut

The road side continued to lead throughout the first half. A 10-0 run, capped by an Anna Strickland basket, stretched the advantage to 34-18 with 1:32 left in the half, and Harding led at the break, 34-21. The Golden Eagles finally shifted into gear at the 10:41 mark, when Luper hit a spot-up three-pointer. The three-ball kicked off a 13-0 ORU run that made the score 51-47 with 6:20 left. But the visitors again responded with class, equaling ORU’s 13-0 run and restoring their 17-point lead. Holmes scored seven points during the stretch, including a pair of free throws to make the lead 64-47 with just 3:02 remaining. ORU never recovered and fell by 14 in front of the home crowd.

That lead would be the high point for Oklahoma Baptist, who surrendered the next 19 points to dissolve any chance they had of springing the upset. Luper scored eight points during the run, and Bigham assisted on five of ORU’s nine consecutive baskets, helping the home team to a healthy 64-46 lead with just over seven minutes to play. The lead would remain in double-digits for the duration of the game.

ORAL ROBERTS UT-ARLINGTON

ORU holds Tulsa to 33.9% shooting and claims first PSO Mayor’s Cup victory since 2009

Golden Eagles hold UTA to five second half field goals, while Luper scores 32 points in just 29 minutes

TULSA, Okla. - The Misti Cussen Era opened in fine fashion as Oral Roberts University knocked off the University of Tulsa, 64-53, in the 2012 edition of the PSO Mayor’s Cup game. Senior Kevi Luper led all players with 23 points in the victory.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Senior Kevi Luper stole the show on Friday afternoon, scoring 32 points as Oral Roberts University knocked off UT-Arlington, 73-41, inside of the College Park Center. Luper’s 32 points came in just 29 minutes of action. She shot 13-for-19 from the floor and added seven rebounds, six steals and three blocked shots.

Defense led the way for the Golden Eagles (1-0) on Friday night, as they forced Tulsa into 23 turnovers and held the Golden Hurricane (0-1) to 33.9% shooting.

Senior Savanna Buck also had a fine day, with 13 points and 11 rebounds. Bernadett Balla added 10 points, and Jaci Bigham dished nine assists.

ORU’s defense was especially strong in the second half, when Tulsa shot just 25.0% from the floor. Luper’s 23 led the way, but freshman Taylor Cooper made an equally notable splash in her collegiate debut with five three-pointers and 19 points.

ORU shot 51.9% (27-for-52) from the floor and held UTA to a 25.4% (15-for-59) clip. ORU raced out to a hot start, taking a 17-7 lead on a jumper from Luper at the 12:35 mark. The Adair native hit her first six shots on the afternoon.

Senior Savanna Buck led all players with a career-high 12 boards. Tulsa was led Ashley Clark, who scored a team-high 12 points in the collegiate debut. All-Conference USA performer Taleya Mayberry was held to just 10 points and fouled out of the game with 1:12 left.

Kevi Luper scored 23 points and grabbed six rebounds, willing ORU to victory in her final Mayor’s Cup battle.

Lockdown defense by Sarah Shelton and the Golden Eagles held UT-Arlington to just five field goals in the second half.

But Wilson caught fire from downtown, tightening the gap late in the half. The sophomore hit her first three outside shots and closed the gap to 26-25 with a free throw at the 4:58 mark.

ORU closed the first half in control, scoring eight of the period’s final 10 points. A jumper by Luper in the half’s waning seconds gave the squad a 38-30 lead at the intermission.

The Golden Eagles closed the half on a 9-3 run. A three-point play by Luper pushed the advantage to 3528, and ORU went into the locker room with a seven-point lead.

Tulsa was ice cold to start the second half, and ORU took advantage with a methodical 12-2 run. The Golden Eagle lead crested at the 12:37 mark, when Luper hit a pair of free throws to give ORU a 50-32 edge

UTA scored just 13 points and only hit five field goals in the second half, and a close game at the break would turn into a blowout. The first 30-point lead came with 7:20 left, when Buck canned a three-pointer to stretch the lead to 65-32.

Though the Hurricane tried to rally, ORU held firm for the majority of the second half. A free throw by Jaci Bigham gave the Golden Eagles a 57-41 advantage with 5:28 left, and victory was imminent for the home team.

ORU loses to Trojans for first time, drops to .500 heading into Thanksgiving break.

TULSA, Okla. - Sophomore forward Bernadett Balla scored a career high 26 points, but Oral Roberts University was beaten by Arkansas, 80-57, on Monday night at the Mabee Center. The loss drops ORU to 2-1 on the season.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Oral Roberts University suffered their second loss in three days when they fell to UALR, 79-47, on Wednesday evening at the Jack Stephens Center. With the setback, ORU’s record falls to 2-2. ORU had won their previous three meetings against teams from the Sun Belt Conference.

Arkansas (3-0) was led by Quistelle Williams, who hit a career-high three three-point field goals and scored a team-high 17 points. Jhasmin Bowen added 13 points and a game-high 10 rebounds off the bench.

UALR’s Taylor Gault scored 25 points in the first half and finished with 31 for the game to lead all scorers. The sophomore was 5-for-8 from three-point range.

ORU hit seven of their first 14 shots but finished the game at 33.3% (18-for-54) from the field. The Razorbacks shot 47.6% (30-for-63), including 50.0% (11-for-22) from three-point range.

Golden Eagles lose 11-point second half lead, spoiling 40-point outburst from Luper

(3-3)

Golden Eagles hold Evangel to nine field goals; Luper crosses 2,400-point, 400-steal milestones

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - Oral Roberts University let an 11-point second half lead slip away on Thursday night as they fell in overtime, 73-72, to Missouri State University. Senior Kevi Luper scored 40 points in the loss.

TULSA, Okla. - Oral Roberts University was a defensive force on Wednesday afternoon and pummeled Evangel University, 96-34, at the Mabee Center. ORU held the Crusaders to 20.9% shooting and forced 30 turnovers in the win.

Luper was 14-for-32 from the floor, 4-for-9 from threepoint range and 8-for-8 from the free throw line. She added five steals and four rebounds.

Kevi Luper led the Golden Eagles (3-3) with 22 points and eight steals, while Jaci Bigham tallied her fifth career double-double with 17 points and 11 assists.

The Golden Eagles came alive late in the 1st half, using an aggressive zone defensive to turn the Bears over and get back in the game. A long jumper by Bigham capped a 7-0 run, giving ORU a 26-25 lead at the 2:51 mark.

Two Golden Eagles set career highs in the win, with Christian Key scoring 15 points and Sarah Shelton adding 14.

The momentum carried over to the second half, with the Golden Eagle zone forcing seven turnovers in the first 3:10 of the period. That led to a 10-0 run, with a Luper basket stretching the lead to 40-29 at the 16:54 mark. Two free throws from Luper restored the double-digit advantage, at 54-44, with 8:17 remaining. But the Bears woke up for the game’s final eight minutes, rallying to even the score with a 10-0 run. A Shorter free throw at the 5:50 mark tied the game, at 54-all.

Kevi Luper nearly carried ORU to victory over Missouri State, posting her third career 40-point performance

Missouri State scored the final five points of regulation. A three-pointer from Kenzie Williams, her first of the night, cut the lead to 65-63, and Whitney Edie tied the game with :18 left with a running layup. A buzzer-beater from ORU’s Taylor Cooper was left short, and the game went to overtime tied at 65-all. The teams traded baskets to start the overtime period, but ORU came out ahead. A corner three from Luper gave her 40th point of the night and gave the Golden Eagles a 72-71 lead with 2:45 on the clock. But the Bears scored the final points of the game with 2:33 left. Williams hit an open layup to give Missouri State a 73-72 lead, and neither team scored again. Cooper missed a heavily-contested jumper at the buzzer, sending ORU to their third straight loss.

ORU scored the first 18 points of the game to quickly establish their dominance over the Crusaders. A threepointer by the Crusaders gave Misti Cussen’s club an 18-0 lead at the 14:22 mark. After Evangel finally got on the board, ORU went on a 16-0 run to build a 34-2 lead with 7:13 left in the half. The Golden Eagles closed the half on a 7-0 run, as a buzzer-beater from Bigham made the score 46-10 at the halftime whistle. Cussen’s team stretched that run to 23-0, a season-best, by scoring the first 16 points of the second half. A layup from Shelton courtesy of a beautiful Bigham assist stretched the advantage to 62-10 with 16:11 to play. ORU’s largest lead, a 65-point edge, came with 4:16 on the clock as Shelton put in a second-chance basket to make the score 90-25.

Slow start costs Golden Eagles in loss to defending National Champion Bears

Lady Techsters hold ORU scoreless in final 2:32, score winning basket with :12 remaining

WACO, Texas - Oral Roberts University fought hard but suffered a loss on Wednesday night as they were topped by No. 3/3 Baylor, 94-56, in front of 7,767 fans at the Ferrell Center. With the loss, ORU falls to 3-4.

RUSTON, La. - Louisiana Tech’s Whitney Frazier hit a game-winning field goal with :12 left, leading the Lady Techsters to a 61-59 victory over Oral Roberts University. ORU (3-5) had an opportunity to win the game at the buzzer, but Taylor Cooper’s last-second three-pointer was off the mark and the Golden Eagles lost for the fifth time in six games.

Senior Kevi Luper led the Golden Eagles with 19 points, while freshman Taylor Cooper caught fire from threepoint range and added 16. Sarah Shelton held her own on the low block, finishing with 11 points and a teamhigh seven rebounds.

Kevi Luper led the Golden Eagles with 18 points, while Bernadett Balla came off the bench to score 16. Frazier led all players with 21 points.

The Golden Eagles got off to a great start, building an early double-digit lead. A Sarah Shelton layup at the 14:43 mark gave Misti Cussen’s club a 14-4 advantage.

Odyssey Sims led the Bears with 27 points, while reigning consensus national player of the year Brittney Griner tallied 22 points and 10 rebounds. The home team sprinted out to a sizable lead, going up 31-9 at the 12:12 mark. But ORU spent the rest of the half whittling the lead down. A late three-pointer by Cooper capped a 12-5 ORU run and cut the gap to 48-34.

But ORU would not go away, methodically getting back into the game. They finally retook the lead with 4:13 left on the clock, when Cooper hit a baseline runner to make the score 57-56.

ORU came out of the locker room hot, scoring the first four points of the half. A layup by Shelton off of a feed from Luper cut Baylor’s advantage to 51-38 with 18:54 to play. But the Bears answered with a 9-2 run, putting the game out of reach. Two Jordan Madden free throws at the 16:39 mark restored the 20-point lead, at 60-40.

ORU tallied points for the final time with 2:32 left in the game, as Shelton scored off of a Jaci Bigham feed to give ORU a 60-59 lead. Neither team scored on their next three possessions, setting up a closing sequence that would cost the Golden Eagles.

Later Sims put the finishing touches on a 12-0 Baylor run, scoring in transition to boost the lead to 78-47 with 11:18 to play.

ORU’s final shot attempt, a three-pointer by Cooper from the left wing, did not fall and Louisiana Tech left the arena with a two-point win. Official Basketball Box Score -- Game Totals -- Final Statistics Oral Roberts vs Louisiana Tech 12/14/12 7:00 p.m. at Ruston, La. (Thomas Assembly Center)

ORU wins second half, 47-36, but can’t climb out of 30-point hole

DePaul hits 13 three-pointers, pressures Golden Eagles into 22 turnovers

LINCOLN, Neb. - Oral Roberts University fought hard until the final whistle but could not overcome Nebraska on Thursday night at the Devaney Center in an 80-67 loss to the Cornhuskers. Kevi Luper led the Golden Eagles (36) with 22 points.

CHICAGO - Oral Roberts University turned the ball over 22 times and fell victim to a hot-shooting squad from DePaul University, 97-74, on Friday night at McGrathPhillips Arena. ORU’s record is now 3-7 on the season. DePaul (11-3) had six players in double-figures, led by Anna Martin’s 19 points. Katherine Harry added 16 points and 11 rebounds, while Chanise Jenkins added 12 points and 10 assists.

Nebraska (9-3) led the contest at the halftime break, 4420, before ORU won the second half, 47-36. Jordan Hooper paced the Cornhuskers with 33 points on the night, including five three-point field goals. Lindsey Moore added 15 points and eight assists.

Kevi Luper fought through foul trouble to lead the Golden Eagles with 17 points. Bernadett Balla added 12 points off the bench, while Christian Key added 10.

Luper wasn’t the only Golden Eagle to shine offensively. Bernadett Balla poured in 17 points, while Jaci Bigham and Christian Key each scored nine. All nine of Key’s points came in the second half. Hooper came out of the gates hot, scoring the first seven points of the game. Her first three-pointer of the night gave the Huskers a 7-0 lead at the 17:21 mark. ORU came back with a mini-rally. A Luper basket cut Nebraska’s lead to 13-10 with 12:58 to play.

Kevi Luper’s 22-point night kept the Golden Eagles close, but ORU fell to 21st-ranked Nebraska five days before Christmas

74 97

(3-7)

The Blue Demons hit 13 three-point field goals, a season-high for an ORU opponent, and shot 46.8% as a team. Their 97-point output is a high watermark for a Golden Eagle foe in 2012-13. The home team took their first significant lead midway through the opening half. A 6-0 run, capped by two Brittany Hrynko free throws, gave DePaul a 23-14 lead with 11:16 on the clock.

Christian Key and the Golden Eagles shot 40.3% from the floor but fell to DePaul thanks in part to 22 turnovers

But the Golden Eagles would not keep pace with Nebraska for long. The home team scored the next ten points, with a Moore jumper pushing the advantage to 23-10 at the 8:28 mark. The Huskers closed the half on a 9-1 run to build a 24-point halftime lead.

Turnovers continued to plague ORU and the Blue Demons took advantage, turning them into easy baskets. A 12-0 DePaul run late in the half was punctuated by a Jenkins bucket in transition, giving the home side a 46-24 lead with 3:02 left in the half.

ORU came alive offensively midway through the second half. A Bigham runner at the 7:58 mark ended an 11-4 ORU rally and cut Nebraska’s edge to 69-47.

DePaul took their biggest lead with 8:54 left in the game, as Hrynko scored a deuce to push the score to 85-49.

Later, the Golden Eagles scored eight straight points, with Key draining a three-ball to make the score 77-61 with 3:10 left. ORU scored the game’s final six points and ended the game down by 13 after trailing by as much as 30 early in the second half.

ORU played their best basketball down the stretch, closing strong for the second straight game. Misti Cussen’s team ended the game on a 25-12 run, cutting the deficit to 23 points on a Luper basket in the game’s closing seconds. Official Basketball Box Score -- Game Totals -- Final Statistics

Luper crosses 2,500-point mark, Bigham tallies double-double as ORU wins Southland debut

Colonels score four points in the game’s final nine seconds to stun ORU

HAMMOND, La. - Senior Jaci Bigham turned in a masterful effort, finishing with 14 points and 11 assists as Oral Roberts University glided past Southeastern Louisiana, 81-62, in their first ever Southland Conference game.

THIBODAUX, La. - Nicholls State scored four points in the game’s final nine seconds, upending Oral Roberts University by a 69-66 count on Saturday afternoon at Stopher Gym. The loss drops ORU to 4-8 (1-1 Southland Conference).

Bigham wasn’t alone in the victory, as Kevi Luper and Sarah Shelton each accounted for 18 points. Shelton’s outburst set a new career high.

Sarah Shelton paced the Golden Eagles with a careerbest 21 points, while Jaci Bigham scored nine points and added 10 assists.

Luper crossed the 2,500-career point mark with 4:38 left in the opening half. The senior from Adair is just the 48th player in NCAA Division I history to reach the plateau.

Nicholls (9-4, 1-1 SLC) was led by Alisha Allen, who scored 18 points. Jenny Nash added 14, with a dozen markers coming after halftime.

ORU shot 54.7% from the floor, a season-high against an NCAA Division I opponent, and they edged out the Lady Lions on the glass, 37-31.

Nicholls came out on fire, hitting their first four shots. A moving jumper from LiAnn McCarthy with 16:43 on the clock gave the home team an 11-4 lead, forcing a timeout from Misti Cussen.

Misti Cussen’s club got off to a hot start thanks to the court vision of Bigham. The senior assisted on four of ORU’s first six baskets, including a wide open layup by Achilefu at the 12:06 mark that gave the Golden Eagles a 13-6 lead.

But the Golden Eagles rallied with pinpoint shooting of their own. Cooper hit three consecutive three-pointers, capping an 11-3 run with another long distance bomb to give the Golden Eagles a 22-18 lead at the 12:09 mark.

Sarah Shelton’s career-high 21-point explosion was not enough as the Golden Eagles fell in the final ten seconds to Nicholls State

ORU took off on a 15-0 run to grab total control of the game late in the first half. A Shelton basket off of another Bigham feed gave the Golden Eagles a 41-23 lead late in the half, and they took a 41-25 advantage into the halftime break.

The second half was incredibly tight, with the two sides swapping the lead eight times and neither squad leading by more than four points. ORU took their final lead at the 1:11 mark, when Shelton scored on a stick back to give the Golden Eagles a 66-65 advantage.

ORU’s first 20-point lead came with 16:12 left in the game, as Bigham was able to get to the line and hit a pair of free throws that stretched the advantage to 49-28.

After a Nicholls turnover, ORU got the ball back with 25 seconds left and the shot clock off. But the Golden Eagles turned the ball back over to the Colonels, and Allen scored a runner in the lane with nine seconds left to give the Colonels a 67-66 edge. ORU turned the ball over again on the ensuing inbounds play, and Emani White of Nicholls hit two free throws with four seconds left the stretch the lead to three. The Golden Eagles had one final opportunity to send the game to overtime, but Bigham’s 30-foot heave at the buzzer was short and ORU came up on the losing end.

The visitors took their largest lead of the game with 6:32 remaining, when Achilefu canned a short jumper to stretch the advantage to 76-44. The Lions whittled down the margin late in the game, but the final outcome was never in doubt.

Four Golden Eagles score in double-figures, with Bigham notching 10 assists for third straight game

Key explodes for first 20-point effort as ORU completes 2-0 home stand

TULSA, Okla. - Four Golden Eagles scored in doublefigures and Jaci Bigham tallied 10 assists for the third straight game as Oral Roberts University knocked off Northwestern State, 66-55, at the Mabee Center.

TULSA, Okla. - Christian Key scored a career-high 20 points and Jaci Bigham tallied her third double-double of the season as Oral Roberts University overcame a slow start to top Stephen F. Austin, 63-56, at the Mabee Center. The win gives ORU (6-8, 3-1 Southland Conference) a two-game winning streak for the first time since early November.

With the win, ORU improves to 5-8 (2-1 Southland Conference). The victory is ORU’s fourth straight win in a home conference opener.

Key went 6-for-12 from three-point range in her first career 20-point night. Bigham added 17 points and 10 assists, topping the 10-assist mark for the fourth straight game.

Taylor Cooper and Kevi Luper led the Golden Eagles with 16 points each, while Christian Key tallied 15 and Sarah Shelton added 11. Bigham led the Golden Eagles with seven rebounds in addition to her 10 helpers. Northwestern State (5-9, 1-3 SLC) was led by Jasmine Bradley, who scored 15 points.

Kevi Luper added 12 points for the Golden Eagles, who shot just 25.0% in the first half and 34.9% for the game.

ORU shot 48.2% from the floor and committed just nine turnovers in perhaps their most well-executed game of the season. The Lady Demons shot at a 46.8% clip. ORU came out on fire, dominating the first five minutes of the game. Back-to-back baskets from Bernadett Balla gave the home team a 14-3 lead at the 14:46 mark.

Kevi Luper finished with 16 points and three steals as ORU won their home conference opener for the fourth straight season

Misti Cussen’s crew retook control of the game with an 11-0 run early in the second half. Luper supplied three baskets during the run, including a running jumper to cap the rally off with ORU winning, 49-35, at the 13:54 mark. ORU’s largest lead of the game came with 3:02 left, when a pair of Luper free throws made the score 64-48. The Golden Eagles led by double-digits for the game’s final 14:48. Key’s 15-point night is a career high for the junior against an NCAA Division I opponent. The Tulsa native was 3-for-5 from three-point range and played a career-best 37 minutes.

Golden Eagles shoot just 33.3%, hit one of 15 threepointers to fall out of first in SLC standings

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas - Junior Christian Key scored a career-high 21 points as Oral Roberts University overcame a rocky first half to dominate Texas A&MCorpus Christi, 58-41, at American Bank Center. The win moves ORU into a tie for first place in the Southland Conference

HUNTSVILLE, Texas - Oral Roberts University fell out of first place in the Southland Conference on Saturday afternoon with a 54-47 loss to Sam Houston State. ORU (7-9, 4-2 SLC) shot just 33.3% from the field in the loss. Jaci Bigham led the Golden Eagles with 25 points on 10for-22 shooting, but the rest of the ORU team was just 9-for-35 from the floor. Kevi Luper chipped in 10 points in the loss.

Key was 8-for-13 from the field and 5-for-7 from threepoint range. The career-high performance is the third straight for the Tulsa native after she scored 15 points in a win over Northwestern State on January 10 and 20 in a victory over Stephen F. Austin on January 12.

Britini Martin led the Bearkats (9-9, 5-1 SLC) with 19 points, while Sequeena Thomas added 18 points and 20 rebounds. As a team, Sam Houston St outrebounded the Golden Eagles, 54-36, including 23 offensive rebounds.

Sarah Shelton added 11 points and seven rebounds for the Golden Eagles (7-8, 4-1 Southland Conference), while Jaci Bigham added nine points and seven assists.

Sam Houston took control of the contest with an 8-2 run late in the first half. Two Angela Beadle free throws at the 5:04 mark gave the Bearkats a 23-14 lead.

The Islanders (1-15, 0-5 SLC) were led by Imani Dunn, who entered the game with just three total points on the season but scored 13 on Thursday night. Christian Key got hot at the best possible moment, scoring 16 second half points as ORU rallied to beat Texas A&M-Corpus Christi

ORU got off to a very slow start but managed to take advantage of Islander turnovers, building a 15-10 lead on a Bigham jumper with 10:30 left in the first half.

But the home team came back. An Ashley Darley layup gave Corpus Christi a 21-20 lead at the 3:20 mark, their first of the game, and they carried a 23-22 advantage into the halftime break. ORU broke out of their malaise to start the second half on the back of Key, who carried the Golden Eagle offense with her outside shooting. The junior hit three of her first four field goal attempts to start the half, including a corner three with 14:02 left to give ORU a 35-27 lead. The largest ORU lead of the game came with 2:33 left, when a Bernadett Balla basket stretched the advantage to 56-38.

ORAL ROBERTS (10-11, 7-4 SLC) 63 NORTHWESTERN ST. (8-13, 4-7 SLC) 67 ORU goes scoreless in game’s final 2:51, falls as Northwestern State shoots 61.9% from the floor

Bigham sets ORU career assist record as ORU rallies with game-closing 7-2 run

NATCHITOCHES, La. - Northwestern State University shot 61.9% from the field and upended Oral Roberts University, 67-63, at Prather Coliseum.

NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Oral Roberts University’s senior class stood tall, guiding the Golden Eagles to a 68-64 win over Stephen F. Austin at Johnson Coliseum.

ORU was held scoreless for the game’s final 2:51, while Northwestern State (8-13, 4-7 SLC) ended the game on an 8-2 run.

Kevi Luper led the Golden Eagles with 30 points in the win, while Jaci Bigham added a season-high 26 points to go with eight assists. Bigham’s first assist of the game was a big one, as a feed to Sarah Shelton with 18:33 left in the first half was the 604th of the McAlester native’s career, setting a new ORU career record.

Kevi Luper scored a team-high 19 points, and Jaci Bigham added 16. Bigham was credited with just two assists on the night and is now tied with Leah Cannon for the ORU career record, at 603.

Luper was 14-for-25 from the floor, while Bigham hit her first six three-point attempts and finished 6-for-8 from downtown.

Keisha Lee scored 19 points for the Lady Demons, and fellow freshman guard Janelle Perez scored 17. Jasmine Upchurch chipped in 16 points and 11 rebounds. The Lady Demons entered the game shooting just 37.0% from the floor and 28.6% from three-point range in their first 20 games, but they shot 61.9% overall and 53.3% from three-point land in Thursday’s win.

Kevi Luper and the Golden Eagles were shut out in the game’s final 2:51 as a hot-shooting Northwestern State team scored the upset

The Golden Eagles took a 50-45 lead, their largest of the game, with 13:07 remaining, but they could never put distance between themselves and Northwestern State. That came back to haunt Misti Cussen’s team with 6:31 left, when Bradley hit a layup to give the home team a 59-57 lead. The Lady Demons took the lead for good with 4:38 remaining, as Perez hit a contested, no-look threepointer to give NSU a 62-61 edge. ORU missed their final four shots and turned the ball over twice in the game’s final four minutes to suffer their fourth conference loss of the season.

TULSA, Okla. - Oral Roberts University was in top form Thursday night, pounding Southland Conference leader Sam Houston State, 90-40, at the Mabee Center.

TULSA, Okla. - Oral Roberts University moved into the Southland Conference lead for the first time in four weeks as they topped Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, 81-59, at the Mabee Center. Senior Kevi Luper scored 26 points in the win.

ORU held the Bearkats to a 19.6% field goal percentage, a new program record for lowest shooting percentage allowed in a game. ORU’s previous record came on November 29, 2003, when Bacone shot just 20.4% in a 119-29 Golden Eagle win.

ORU (13-11, 10-4 SLC) took advantage of earlier losses by Sam Houston State and Lamar to vault past both teams and into the SLC lead. Both the Bearkats and Cardinals are now 9-4 in league play, a half-game behind the Golden Eagles.

The Golden Eagles used a balanced scoring attack to rout Sam Houston. Jaci Bigham led the way with 17 points, while Taylor Cooper added 16, Christian Key had 15, Kevi Luper chipped in 13 and Savanna Buck scored 11 on the night. ORU put five players in double-figures for the second time this season.

Luper drained four three-pointers and was one of four ORU players in double-figures. Sarah Shelton added 16 points, while Jaci Bigham scored 12 points and dished nine assists.

Sarah Shelton led ORU with 10 rebounds. Buck added eight boards, while Bigham tallied a team-high five assists. Five Golden Eagles scored in double-figures in a 50-point victory over Sam Houston State, including Savanna Buck with 11 points

ORU closed the half on a 9-0 rally to take a comfortable lead into the locker room. Cooper scored the last five points of the period, giving the home team a 36-19 lead.

The Golden Eagles started the second half with a 7-0 run, blitzing the Bearkats and building a 24-point lead. Two free throws from Bigham at the 18:02 mark gave ORU a massive 43-19 edge. Bigham set a personal milestone at the 14:29 mark of the second half. The senior’s three-pointer gave her 1,414 points for her career, placing her 10th on ORU’s career scoring chart. ORU used a 14-0 run midway through the half to put the game out of reach. Bigham and Luper each hit a pair of three-pointers during the run, which gave the home team a 63-27 lead with 11:45 left. ORU’s largest lead came with :25 left, when a Bernadett Balla free throw gave ORU a 90-39 edge.

McNeese mounts 19-4 run, holds off ORU to sweep regular season series

TULSA, Okla. - Oral Roberts University honored their senior class with a victory as they bested Central Arkansas, 76-69, at the Mabee Center. The victory was the final home game for seniors Jaci Bigham, Savanna Buck and Kevi Luper, and the trio did not disappoint, accounting for 52 of the team’s 76 points.

LAKE CHARLES, La. - McNeese State University used a 19-4 run midway through the game to take down Oral Roberts University, 76-71, at Burton Coliseum. Kevi Luper led ORU with 24 points in the loss.

Luper, the leading scorer in ORU history, paced all players with 33 points, while Bigham, the school’s career assist leader, added 12 points and eight helpers. Buck was strong as well, with seven points, five rebounds, and a pair of blocked shots.

McNeese (15-11, 10-5 SLC) was led by Ashlyn Baggett, who hit 5-of-9 three-point attempts and scored 26 points. Sister Caitlyn Baggett added 17 points. . The first half was a back-and-forth affair that featured two ties and 15 lead changes. The Golden Eagles took a five-point lead at the 3:19 mark, when Luper canned a three-pointer to make the score 29-24.

The two squads traded the lead seven times in the opening half before ORU moved ahead for the remainder of the period at the 11:14 mark, on a Bigham three-pointer that made the lead 20-19. The senior was instrumental later in the half as her free throw gave the home team their first double-digit lead, at 37-27. Kevi Luper scored 33 points and moved into the NCAA Division I career top-20 in scoring in her final home game

The lead would stay at 10 going into the halftime break, with ORU up, 41-31. Luper led all players with 17 points, while Bigham had seven points and six assists.

ORU went cold to start the second half, missing 11 of their first 13 shots. The Sugar Bears took advantage, storming back to take a 48-47 lead on a Kelcia Bufkin free throw at the 11:23 mark. But ORU would not be denied on Senior Night. Luper gave the Golden Eagles a 54-53 lead on a jumper with 9:46 left, and the home team would never trail again. The lead would grow back to 73-64 on a Taylor Cooper three-pointer with 2:38 left, and ORU would go on to win by seven. ORU’s senior trio went 45-10 at the Mabee Center over their four-year run, with a 33-3 record against conference opponents. Central Arkansas was the 35th unique opponent that ORU’s senior class has beaten in their four-year career, and their 80th victory as a group, the most by an ORU senior class since 1983.

ORU would do a fine job of rallying, but could never get over the hump and reclaim the lead. The closest Misti Cussen’s team would get came with 9:36 left, when Taylor Cooper supplied a spot-up jumper to cut the gap to 54-53. Cooper again cut the deficit to a single point at the 5:52 mark on a long-range threepointer, making the score 62-61. But the Cowgirls put the game away by scoring the next seven points, boosting their advantage to 69-61 at the 3:59 mark. ORU would never again trail by less than three points, and they fell by five.

SAM HOUSTON STATE ORAL ROBERTS (18-12)

ORU overcomes McNeese on third try to advance to SLC Tournament Championship Game KATY, Texas - Oral Roberts University dethroned the defending conference champions and advanced to their first league title game since 2010 with a 79-66 victory over McNeese State University in the semifinals of the 2013 Southland Conference Tournament.

KATY, Texas - Oral Roberts University won their firstever Southland Conference Tournament Championship with a hard-fought 72-66 victory over Sam Houston State. The conference title guarantees ORU a berth in the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship.

The victory snaps McNeese’s eight-game SLC Tournament winning streak. The fourth-seeded Cowgirls captured the 2011 and 2012 SLC Tournaments and had won their first two games of the 2013 edition.

The conference tournament title is the sixth in ORU program history and the first for the Golden Eagles since winning the Summit League crown in 2008.

A six-point possession early in the second half was huge for ORU. Luper scored a deuce, then shot two technical free throws, then scored again on the inbounds play to give ORU a 45-37 lead with 15:48 left in the game.

The lead grew to a dozen points before ORU suffered a devastating blow. Luper was whistled for her fifth personal foul at the 9:54 mark and was disqualified with nearly a quarter of the game remaining. But Key entered the game in place of the three-time conference player of the year and sparked an effort that will go down as one of the most courageous in Golden Eagle basketball history. Things grew tense as the lead slipped to four points, but Key was there to answer the bell. The Tulsa native hit two mammoth three-pointers as part of a 12-0 run that pushed the lead back to 69-53 with 5:05 left in the game, and ORU was again in control. McNeese closed to deficit to nine points with 3:55 remaining, but Bigham righted the ship and got the lead back to double-digits with an acrobatic floating basket on the next possession. The defending champions would never again truly challenge the Golden Eagles, who booked their ticket to the final with a win in their first-ever SLC Tournament appearance.

Kevi Luper was named Tournament MVP after leading ORU with 26 points, while Jaci Bigham added 17 points and Savanna Buck chipped in 10. The senior trio will be making their first NCAA Tournament appearance.

ORAL ROBERTS (18-13) 62 No. 10/9 TENNESSEE (25-7) 83 ORU leads early, gives great effort in season-ending loss to vaunted Volunteers KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Oral Roberts knew it would take a near-perfect game for the 15-seed beat the second seeded Tennessee Lady Volunteers in Knoxville in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. A dominant defensive performance in the first half gave the Golden Eagles (18-13) a chance, but a scoring drought was too much to overcome as Tennessee (25-7) claimed the 83-62 victory and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The loss brings to a close the careers of seniors Savanna Buck, Kevi Luper and Jaci Bigham. Luper led the offense for ORU, posting another 20-point effort, the 82nd of her illustrious career and moving into 14th place on the NCAA’s career scoring list with 2,867 career points. Buck and Taylor Cooper each had 15 points, while Sarah Shelton aided the cause in other ways with 10 rebounds and a career-high six blocks. Shelton’s blocks were part of a 10-block effort by the ORU defense, tying Baylor for the Thompson-Boling Arena record for a Tennessee opponent.

Kevi Luper capped off her historic collegiate career with a game-high 20 points in an NCAA Tournament loss to Tennessee

Tennessee got 18 points from Meighan Simmons, while Ariel Massengale and Cierra Burdick each added 13 and Bashaara Graves had 11 points. ORU shot 31.8% (21-for-66) for the game and was plagued by 20 turnovers in the loss. As ORU struggled to hit shots to start the second half, UT used the momentum and caught fire hitting 53.8% (14-for-26) in the second half, finishing at 43.1 (28-for-65) for the game. Despite getting out-rebounded 48-39 by a taller Tennessee team, ORU grabbed 18 offensive rebounds, tying for the second most by the Golden Eagles this season. Tennessee moved to 51-0 in NCAA Tournament games at home. Official Basketball Box Score -- Game Totals -- Final Statistics Oral Roberts vs Tennessee 03/23/13 1:30 p.m. at Knoxville, Tenn.

• Two-time AP All-American • Summit League career scoring leader • 3-time Summit League Player of the Year • Led NCAA Dvision I in scoring in 2010-11 • Represented USA at 2012 Pan Am Games • Led ORU to 2013 NCAA Tournament

• Freshman All-American in 1985-86 • All-MCC selection in 1986-87 • Held ORU’s career scoring record for 22 years • Held ORU’s career rebound record for 18 years • First ORU player to tally 2,000 points and 1,000 rebounds

Kevi Luper revolutionized basketball at Oral Roberts University, bringing previously unheard of national and global attention to the program. A three-time Summit League Player of the Year, Luper ended her collegiate career ranked 14th in NCAA Division I history in scoring and 6th in steals. As a sophomore in 2010-11, she became the first player in NCAA Division I women’s basketball history to lead the nation in both points and steals in a single year. Despite playing just three years in the conference, Luper ranks as the top scorer in Summit League history. Luper set ORU’s career scoring record on Feb. 18, 2012 in an overtime win at IPFW, two weeks after breaking the Summit League career scoring record with 41-point performance on Feb. 4, 2012 at North Dakota State. The Adair native was named to the prestigious Naismith Trophy Watch List prior to her final two seasons, and she was an Associated Press All-American after both her freshman and sophomore campaigns. Luper became the first ORU player to play for Team USA in an international competition when she represented her country at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico. She was also featured numerous times by media outlets accross the nation, including ESPN.com, Athlon Sports and Full Court Press. Luper led ORU to the 2013 Southland Conference Tournament Championship as a senior. She scored 20 points in her final game, a nationally-televised matchup with Tennessee in the NCAA Tournament on March 23, 2013.

Vivian Herron was the first Oral Roberts University women’s basketball player to top the 2,000-point and 1,000-rebound plateaus. Her career total of 2,192 points stood for 22 years before it was broken by Kevi Luper in 2012. She is of only four ORU players to average 20 or more points in a season twice, including her 26.4 points per game average as a senior. Also a prolific rebounder, Herron grabbed 1,007 career boards over her four seasons in Tulsa, a mark that stood for 18 seasons. Her 11.2 rebounds per game average from 1988-89 remains a program record to this day. Herron combined her scoring and rebounding talents to form a lethal combination. She recorded 19 double-doubles in her banner season of 1988-89 and finished with 46 double-doubles for her career, setting school records in both categories that held up for 18 years. She scored a career-high of 43 points against New Mexico State on Nov. 28, 1988. Herron was ORU’s first nationally-recognized All-American. After averaging 14.9 points per game as a freshman in 1985-86, Herron was honored as a Freshman All-America honoree by Women’s Basketball Yearbook. ORU won 17 games in Herron’s freshman season, including wins over Tulsa, Texas Tech and Kansas State, and she earned All-Midwestern Collegiate Conference honors a year later when she led the Lady Titans to a 2nd place finish in their only year of MCC play in 1986-87.

TUREK

Indianola, Okla. 1996-2002

Council Bluffs, Iowa 2003-07

• Kodak All-American in 2002 • Three-time Mid-Con Player of the Year • Two-time Mid-Con Tournament MVP • Led ORU to ‘99 and ‘01 NCAA Tournaments • Is the only ORU women’s basketball player to have her number retired at the Mabee Center

Krista Ragan left an indelible impression on the ORU women’s basketball program, transforming the Golden Eagles from a struggling doormat into a mid-major power that regularly competes on the sport’s grandest stages. In 1996, Ragan joined a program that had posted losing seasons in eight of the last nine years. Leg injuries sidelined her after four games of her first season and one game of her second, but in 1998-99 Ragan recovered to lead the Golden Eagles to a 17-13 record and their first Mid-Con Tournament title. Two years later, Ragan guided ORU to its first 20-win season in 18 years and a second Mid-Con crown. Led by Ragan, ORU nearly upset 2nd-seeded Oklahoma in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. A complete scorer, Ragan ended her career as the career scoring leader in Mid-Con (now Summit League) history, and over a decade after her graduation she still ranks second on the league’s all-time points list. Ragan was named Mid-Con Player of the Year by the league’s media in 1998-99, and she captured the league’s official award in both 2000-01 and 2001-02. An ORU assistant coach during the team’s 2012-13 Southland championship run, Ragan is married to ORU men’s basketball legend Nathan Binam. She is the only ORU women’s player to have her jersey retired, as her famous #11 was raised to the Mabee Center rafters at halftime of a victory over UMKC on Jan. 28, 2012.

The only player in program history to lead the Golden Eagles in scoring and rebounding four times, Elisha Turek was an instant success from the moment she arrived in Tulsa from her hometown of Council Bluffs, Iowa. As a freshman in 200304, Turek averaged 15.0 points and 9.3 rebounds per game to capture Mid-Con Newcomer of the Year honors. The Golden Eagles lost to Valparaiso by a single point in the Mid-Con title game in Turek’s rookie campaign, but that disappointment fueled the Iowa native to a sophomore year for the ages. Turek led the Mid-Con with 18.3 points and 9.6 rebounds per game in 2004-05, and she took the Golden Eagles to their first NCAA Tournament since 2001. Turek led all scorers with 21 points in a First Round loss to Texas, but there was no question the ORU program had found a star. After a disappointing opening round loss to Oakland in the Mid-Con Tournament as a junior, Turek regrouped for her senior season of 2006-07. She led the league with 17.5 points and 10.5 rebounds per game and captured her first Mid-Con Player of the Year trophy. Most importantly, Turek led ORU to another Mid-Con Tournament title, getting revenge over Oakland in the championship game, and she capped her career with an NCAA Tournament loss to Purdue. Turek broke ORU’s career rebounding record on Jan. 22, 2007 in a 32-point, 15-board masterpiece vs. Centenary. She holds ORU’s career rebounding mark, with 1,168 for her career, and she has the school record with 52 career double-doubles.

WILLIAMS York, Pa. 1988-91

Hugo, Okla. 1978-81

• Two-time NAIA All-District 9 Selection • Holds ORU’s single-season record in scoring • Holds ORU’s career record in three-point field goals despite playing only two full seasons • Scored a school-record 50 points against Langston on Feb. 20, 1990

• Held ORU’s career scoring and rebounding records for 8 years • Averaged over 20 points per game in each of her final two seasons • Led ORU to three consecutive AIAW State Championships

Stacy Williams played three seasons at ORU after transferring from Penn State, where she did not play basketball. Though she only played two full seasons, her impact on the Golden Eagle record books is tremendous, especially in the area of three-point shooting. A prolific outside shooter, Williams holds ORU’s career record for made three-point field goals, with 321, despite playing only 81 career games. Williams’ banner season came in 1989-90, when she set singleseason school records in total points, with 1,060, and scoring average, at 26.5 points per game. Williams drained a school-record 194 three-pointers that year, more than all but four ORU players hit in their entire careers, and was named an NAIA All-District pick. Williams set a school record for points in a game on Feb. 20, 1990, when she scored 50 points in an overtime victory over Langston. She was also a skilled passer, setting a school record at the time with 14 assists against Oklahoma City on Jan. 10, 1991. Williams led Oral Roberts in assists per game in both of her full seasons on the roster. A native of York, Pa., Williams was named 1st Team NAIA All-District 9 selection as a senior in 1990-91, when she averaged 20.7 points per game and led the team to 15 victories, a 13-win improvement over the previous year, and a spot in the NAIA District Playoffs.

Sharon Tucker played only three seasons for the Lady Titans but still ranks as one of the most outstanding scorers in school history. One of only five ORU players to average better than 20.0 points per game in two different seasons, Tucker ended her career as the school’s career leader in points and rebounds. Tucker led ORU to three consecutive AIAW State Championships, starting with her rookie season of 1978-79. The Lady Titans went 25-10 that season, with Tucker averaging 13.6 points per game. Tucker led ORU to multiple wins over Arkansas, Wichita State, Oklahoma State and Oklahoma, including a 69-66 victory over the Sooners in the State Championship Game. The season ended with a three-point loss to 3rd-ranked Texas in the AIAW Southwest Regional Tournament. The Hugo native assumed a bigger role for the 1979-80 club, which went 22-8 and won yet another AIAW State Championship. Tucker averaged 21.2 points per game in her second season and shot 56.2% from the floor, the 7th-most efficient season in school history. ORU again knocked off Oklahoma to win the State Championship but was tripped up by McNeese State in their opening round of regional play. Tucker’s final season was 1980-81. Despite losing three of their first four contests, Tucker and the Lady Titans righted the ship and won 18 games. The team picked up steam as the year went along and peaked at the right time, knocking off Oklahoma State in the State Semifinals and Oklahoma for the third straight season in the State Championship Game. The club beat Arkansas in the first round of AIAW Regionals before ending the year with a loss to Texas. Tucker tallied 23.1 points per game in her final campaign, which was a school record at the time, and she shot 54.4% from the field. Tucker was also an outstanding rebounder despite standing just 5-7. She finished her career with 745 boards, a school record at the time and still the 5th-best mark in program history. She is one of only ten ORU players to average more than seven rebounds per game for her career.

• All-MCC selection in 1986-87 • Held ORU’s career steals record for 24 years • Held ORU’s career assists record for 18 years • Is the only player on ORU’s career top-10 list in points, rebounds, assists and steals • Played with two other 1,000-point scorers

Kim Odgen teamed with fellow 1,000-point club members Vivian Herron and Cari Chamberlin but still managed to carve out one of the most successful individual careers in Oral Roberts University history. The North Dakota native, who also teamed with her twin sister, Nan, was just the third ORU player to pass the 1,500-point threshold. ORU struggled to a 9-21 record in Ogden’s debut season of 1984-85, but the rookie established herself as an all-around threat, averaging 11.6 points per game to go along with a team-high 3.8 assists per game and 83 steals. As a sophomore, Odgen assumed a greater scoring load, tallying 15.6 points per game, and the result was a much better season. The Lady Titans won 17 games, including wins over ranked clubs from Texas Tech and Kansas State. Statistically, Ogden’s best year came in 1986-87, her junior campaign. Odgen scored a career-best 18.6 points per game and was named to the All-Midwestern Collegiate Conference Team in ORU’s lone year as a member of the league. Led by Odgen, the Lady Titans finished second in the conference. Odgen took advantage of the newly-instituted three-point line in her senior season, averaging 15.3 points per game on the strength of 21 made three-pointers. Odgen was much more than a scorer. She ended her career as ORU’s all-time leader in steals, with 372, and assists, with 518. She still ranks in ORU’s top-three in both categories ODGEN’S CAREER STATISTICS Season 1984-85 1985-86 1986-87 1987-88 Totals

Perhaps the toughest player to ever don an ORU uniform, Jaci Bigham battled through a litany of major injuries to forge a place as perhaps the greatest point guard in ORU women’s basketball history. Bigham joined the ORU program in 2009 and quickly stood out as one of the nation’s most dynamic players. She scored more than 17 points per game as a freshman, teaming with Kevi Luper to form the highest-scoring duo in all of NCAA Division I basketball. ORU won 23 games but was upset in the finals of the Summit League Tournament. It would be three years before Bigham would again be that close to postseason glory. With ORU riding a 12-game winning streak and dominating the Summit League, Bigham suffered a torn ACL on Feb. 12, 2011 against Southern Utah. The injury was a major factor in ORU’s early exit from the 2011 Summit League Tournament, and with Bigham badly hobbled and still recovering, the Golden Eagles again came up short in 2012. The 2012-13 season was Bigham’s final opportunity to reach the NCAA Tournament, and she made the most of it, returning to All-Conference form. Bigham averaged 12.4 points and a Southland Conference-best 6.7 assists per game as a senior. Most importantly, she led the Golden Eagles to the SLC Tournament title and a spot in the Big Dance, where she ended her career with a loss to Tennessee. Bigham also holds ORU’s career assists record, with 668, and she currently serves as the director of player development on the ORU coaching staff.

• Four-time All-Conference selection • One of only three ORU players to record 1,000 points, 500 rebounds and 250 assists • Played with eight other 1,000-point scorers • Led ORU to NCAA Tournament bids in 2007 and 2008

• All-Summit League selection in 2010-11 • Part of two Summit League Regular Season Championship teams • Led ORU to three WNIT appearances • Ranks 4th in school history in rebounds and 3rd in steals

Janae Voelker served a variety of roles during her four seasons in Tulsa, earning a lasting reputation as one of the most versatile players in Golden Eagle history. The Newton, Kan., native is one of only four Golden Eagles to earn four All-Conference awards, and she is one of only three ORU players to tally 1,000 points, 500 rebounds and 250 assists in her career. Voelker tasted postseason success from the moment she stepped on the ORU campus, playing an integral role in the 2007 Mid-Con Tournament Championship team, garnering an Honorable Mention All-Conference pick. One season later, Voelker more than doubled her scoring average to 11.4 points per game, leading ORU to the championship at the rebranded Summit League Tournament. Voelker scored in double-figures in all three tournament games, earning All-Tournament laurels to go with another Honorable Mention All-Conference nod. Statistically, Voelker’s best season was 2008-09, when she led the team with 16.5 points per game and was a 1st Team All-Summit pick. A year later, Voelker earned Honorable Mention status again, averaging 11.3 points per game on the first ORU team to win the Summit League regular season crown. Voelker bridged the gap between two of the most successful eras in ORU history, teaming with eight other 1,000-point scorers during her four-year career. She returned to ORU before the 2013-14 season to serve as the team’s director of operations.

Mustang native Jordan Pyle formed the backbone of one of the most successful stretches in Oral Roberts women’s basketball history. Pyle was flanked by three other 1,000-point scorers - guards Kevi Luper, Jaci Bigham and Georgia Jones - single-handedly dominating the low block during a career that included two Summit League regular season titles and three trips to the Women’s National Invitation Tournament. As a freshman in 2008-09, Pyle served a supporting role on a club that won just 13 games. But she moved into a starting role as a sophomore in 2009-10 and made a tremendous impact, scoring 11.8 points per game on a then-school record 62.3% shooting. Pyle’s best season came as a junior in 2010-11, when she averaged 15.4 points and 8.7 rebounds per game. With Pyle as the interior muscle, the Golden Eagles rattled off 23 victories, including WNIT wins over TCU and Tulane that marked the program’s first postseason triumphs in 28 years. After the season, Pyle was honored as an All-Summit League selection. Pyle capped her career with yet another 20-win season in 2011-12, and she played a key role in ORU’s historic victory over Wisconsin on Nov. 13, 2011, with 16 points, seven steals and five assists. The win was ORU’s first over a Big Ten opponent since 1977. Pyle led ORU in rebounding twice and ranks fourth on the school’s career rebound list. A nimble defender, she also ranks third in school history in steals.

• Posted largest single-season scoring improvement in ORU history when she averaged 17.4 points per game in 1987-88 • Scored 21.4 points per game as a senior in 1988-89, the ninth-highest single-season scoring average in ORU history

Still the only Tulsa native to join ORU’s 1,000-point club, Connie Weeks was the first star in Oral Roberts University basketball history. Weeks suited up for the first three ORU women’s basketball teams and led the Lady Titans to immediate success. ORU’s combined record in Weeks’ career was 74-17, and the .813 winning percentage accumulated during the Weeks era still stands as the most successful three-year stretch in program history. Weeks averaged 19.9 points and 3.6 assists per game in 1975-76, leading the first ORU team in both categories. The inaugural Lady Titan club went 18-4, including two wins in the Oklahoma Small College Tournament. In 1976-77, Weeks averaged a team-high 16.8 points per game against a huge step up in competition. ORU notched victories over Tulsa, Oklahoma and Arkansas in Weeks’ second season and finished with a 25-9 record. Weeks led ORU to a 31-4 record in her final season, 1977-78, helping the club achieve a school record for victories that still stands today. After racking up victories over Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Arkansas and Michigan State during the regular season, Weeks led the club to a glorious postseason finish, as ORU beat Tulsa in the championship game of the AIAW State Tournament. The postseason title was the first in school history. Weeks was ORU’s first 1,000-point scorer and nearly four decades later, her name still dots the school’s record books. Weeks remains in the top-10 of ORU’s career field goals and assists lists.

Few players have improved over the course of their collegiate careers as much as Bellingham, Wash., native Cari Chamberlin. A role player who averaged just 5.4 points per game as a sophomore, Chamberlin exploded for 17.4 points per game in her junior year and 21.4 points per game as a senior. Chamberlin’s output in 1988-89 remains the ninth-highest single-season scoring average in ORU basketball history. A highly-touted freshman, Chamberlin played a supporting role on the 1985-86 club, which featured 1,000-point producers Vivian Herron and Kim Odgen. Still, Chamberlin contributed over seven points per game on a club that notched 17 victories. Injuries hampered Chamberlin in 1986-87, when she played in just 18 games. Midway through her collegiate career, Chamberlin had tallied just 305 total points and looked unlikely to end up with over 1,000 points. That changed with Chamberlin’s junior season of 1987-88, when she posted the biggest single-season scoring improvement in ORU history. Chamberlin took advantage of the three-point line and poured in 17.4 points per game, second only to Herron. She notched her best individual performance midway through her junior season, when she scored 34 points in a Jan. 21, 1988 victory over UMKC. In her final season, Chamberlin again teamed with Herron to form a high-powered ORU offense. Chamberlin became the fourth player in ORU history to hit 150 free throws in a season and scored 21.4 points per game.

Margie Jackson powered through adversity to secure a well-deserved spot on ORU’s 1,000-point list. Jackson suffered a season-ending knee injury just six games into her junior season, yet she came back stronger than ever before to lead Oral Roberts in scoring in each of her last two seasons. A native of Okemah, Jackson was a strong contributor on ORU’s 1980-81 club, the fourth and final ORU group to win an AIAW State Championship. Jackson averaged 5.5 points per game as a rookie and hit 91% of her free throws. Jackson played a similar role on ORU’s 1981-82 club and looked poised to break out in 1982-83 before a left knee injury in a New Year’s Eve victory over Eastern Kentucky ended her season prematurely. The 1982-83 team went on to post a perfect 25-0 record in the regular season with Jackson watching from the sidelines. Jackson did not let the disappointment of 1982-83 derail her career; instead, she reemerged as one of the most improved players in ORU program history. Jackson averaged a team-high 16.0 points per game in 1983-84, and she again led the way with 16.6 points per game in her final year, 1984-85. With Jackson as the star, the period of 1983-85 featured wins over Tulsa, Arkansas, Baylor, Creighton and Arizona State. Though working primarily from the perimeter, Jackson was a truly efficient scorer. She holds ORU career free throw percentage mark, and she hit over 48% of her field goal attempts for her career.

A lightning-quick ball-handler, Mariana Camargo was part of two NCAA Tournament clubs during her time at ORU. Camargo was the first foreign player to join ORU’s 1,000-point club, and she still ranks fourth on ORU’s career assist list. Camargo was a Mid-Con AllNewcomer selection in 2005-06, when she averaged 8.0 points per game. She added 3.4 assists per game in her rookie year. Camargo took on less of a scoring role in 2006-07, but she demonstrated her value in a variety of ways. She led the club with 4.0 assists per game, including nine helpers in a Mid-Con Tournament Championship Game win over Oakland that secured an NCAA Tournament berth. Statistically, Camargo’s best year came in 2007-08, when she upped her scoring load to a team-best 13.3 points per game and earned an All-Summit League 2nd Team selection. She added eight points and eight rebounds in a Summit League Tournament title win over IUPUI. After the season, Camargo was honored as a 2nd Team All-Summit League selection. Camargo injured her knee in the opening minute of ORU’s 2008 NCAA Tournament loss to Tennessee, but she recovered in time to take part in ORU’s 2008-09 campaign. As a senior, Camargo averaged 10.8 points per game and earned her second All-Summit League Honorable Mention selection. A quality rebounder from her point guard position, Camargo is one of only three ORU players to reach the 1,000-point, 500-rebound and 250-assist milestones.

• Honorable Mention All-American in 1995-96 • Led NCAA Division I in blocked shots in 1995-96 • Holds ORU’s career blocked shots record • Holds ORU’s career rebounding average • Won the final eight games of her ORU career

One of the most talented players to ever wear an ORU uniform, Kisa Bradley is the only member of ORU’s 1,000-point club to don the blue and gold for just two seasons. Bradley transferred to ORU in 1995 after spending two seasons at Central Arizona College. In her first season, the Detroit native posted just the sixth 600-point season in school history and averaged 22.3 points per game. A fearsome presence around the rim, Bradley blocked 119 shots in her first season (which placed her second all-time on ORU’s career blocked shots list after just 27 games), and she led all of NCAA Division I with 4.4 blocked shots per game. The mammoth performance brought national attention to the ORU program, and despite taking part in just 10 victories, Bradley was honored as an All-American by the Basketball Times. Bradley’s final season at ORU was Jerry Finkbeiner’s first, and together the duo led the Golden Eagles to a 13-14 season. The pairing clicked late in the year, as ORU won the final eight games of Bradley’s career. Bradley again averaged 22.3 points per game. Bradley blocked 94 shots in her senior season, falling short of her junior year performance. Still, the 94-block season, on its own, would check in as the sixthbest career mark in ORU history. Needless to say, Bradley owns ORU’s career blocks lead by a wide margin. She is also ORU’s career leader in rebounding average and is the only ORU player to average 10 rebounds per game for her career. After graduation, Bradley played professionally for the San Jose Lasers of the ABL. BRADLEY’S CAREER STATISTICS

• Named Summit League Newcomer of the Year in 2008-09 • Ranks 2nd on ORU’s career three-pointers list and 5th on ORU’s career assists list • Represented Great Britain in the 2011 World University Games

Georgia Jones played a vital supporting role on three of the most successful teams in ORU history and made a name for herself as the only England native to join ORU’s 1,000-point club. Jones averaged 12.4 points per game and canned 68 three-pointers as a freshman in 2008-09. The performance netted her Summit League Newcomer of the Year honors. Though ORU won just 11 times in Jones’ freshman season, team success was quick to follow, as ORU won 23 games and a Summit League regular season championship in 2009-10. Jones battled injuries and played just 16 times as a sophomore, but she still contributed 8.1 points per game. Jones returned to full health and resumed her role as a dead-eye three-point shooter in 2010-11, when she connected on 63 three-point shots and averaged 7.9 points per game. ORU again won the Summit League regular season title. ORU notched another 20-win season in Jones’ senior campaign, and Jones contributed 9.1 points per game. In addition to her shooting prowess, Jones was a dangerous passer and led the team in assists twice. Jones ended her career ranked second on the school’s threepoint field goal list and fifth on the school’s assist list. Jones represented her native Great Britain in the 2011 World University Games, and she has also played for Team GB on the senior international level. She currently plays professionally at CS Cluj Napoca in Romania. JONES’ CAREER STATISTICS Season 2008-09 2009-10 2010-11 2011-12 Totals

• Two-time All-Mid-Continent Conference selection • Held ORU’s career three-point field goal percentage record for nine years • Led ORU in scoring in 2001 NCAA Tournament loss to Oklahoma, with 19 points

A hard-nosed guard who battled nagging injuries almost every season, Cori Williston fought through the pain to end her career as one of the top guards in ORU basketball history. Williston did the majority of her damage from long distance, and she ended her career as ORU’s alltime 3-point percentage leader, at 39.9%. Williston scored 5.6 points per game as a freshman in 2000-01, with her biggest contribution coming in postseason play. Williston caught fire against Oklahoma in the NCAA Tournament, scoring a game-high 19 points to nearly lead ORU to an upset of the second-seeded Sooners. Buoyed by the confidence of her NCAA Tournament breakout performance, Williston averaged 14.1 points per game as a sophomore in 2001-02. At the end of the season, she was honored with the first of two All-Conference selections from the Mid-Continent Conference. The Jenks native was also honored as an All-Mid-Con performer in 2002-03, when she contributed 12.8 points per game. The season was the most efficient of Williston’s career, as she connected on 44.0% of her three-point shots. Williston led ORU to one final run at a Mid-Con title in her senior season of 200304, but injuries limited her to just 21 games and 7.3 points per game. In her final game as a collegian, ORU lost a heart-breaker to Valparaiso in the finals of the Mid-Con Tournament. WILLISTON’S CAREER STATISTICS Season 2000-01 2001-02 2002-03 2003-04 Totals

• Two-time All-Conference selection • 2005-06 Mid-Con All-Newcomer Team selection • Played in 2007 and 2008 NCAA Tournaments • Led ORU in scoring in 2008 NCAA Tournament loss to Tennessee, with 15 points

Jenny Hardin was a three-year star for the Golden Eagles, serving as one of the top inside-out threats in ORU history. The Claremore product teamed with three other 1,000-point scorers to lead the Golden Eagles to NCAA Tournament appearances in 2007 and 2008. Hardin was named to the Mid-Con All-Newcomer Team in 2005-06, when she averaged 9.9 points per game. The season ended on a sour note, though, as ORU was shocked by Oakland in the first round of the Mid-Con Tournament. Fueled by the early exit, Hardin was a force in the 2007 Mid-Con Tournament, earning an All-Tournament selection. She came off the bench to score 13.7 points per game in three victories, including a Championship rematch against Oakland, as the Golden Eagles captured the conference crown and advanced to the NCAA Tournament. For the season, Hardin averaged 15.3 points per game and was named a 2nd Team All-Conference performer. In the NCAA Tournament game against second-seeded Purdue, Hardin scored 10 points. Hardin would go back to the NCAA Tournament in 2007-08, as the Golden Eagles took the Summit League Tournament Championship. Hardin averaged 13.1 points per game for the season and was an Honorable Mention All-League pick. In the NCAA Tournament matchup with legendary Head Coach Pat Summitt and Tennessee, Hardin led the Golden Eagles with 16 points. HARDIN’S CAREER STATISTICS Season 2005-06 2006-07 2007-08 Totals

Kristen Brady-Atkinson ended her Golden Eagle career as the most prolific three-point shooter of ORU’s NCAA Division I era. Brady-Atkinson knocked down 216 three-pointers, which stood for nine seasons as the most three-pointers by a member of one of ORU’s Division I clubs. She hit 67 threes in both 2000-01 and 2002-03, which were single-season Division I records when BradyAtkinson’s career was over. Primarily a reserve through her career, Brady-Atkinson started in just 35 of her 116 career appearances. Brady-Atkinson’s first season was the magical campaign of 1998-99, when ORU charged through the Mid-Con Tournament to win their first conference crown. Brady-Atkinson scored 5.2 points per game. In 1999-00, Brady-Atkinson averaged double-figures for the first time, scoring 10.8 points per game. She knocked down 61 three-point field goals as a sophomore. Brady-Atkinson posted her finest all-around season in 2000-01. She averaged 10.0 points per game and did so at an efficient 42.3% clip. From downtown, she knocked down 41.1% of her attempts. ORU won the Mid-Con Tournament title, and BradyAtkinson scored 10 points in the near-upset of Oklahoma in the NCAA Tournament. Brady-Atkinson did not play in 2001-02, but she was as sharp as ever when she returned the following year. Brady-Atkinson again hit 67 three-pointers in her final year, and ORU won 18 games. Brady-Atkinson still ranks third on ORU’s career three-point field goal list, and she ended her career ranked second on the Mid-Con’s career three-point tally.

March 17, 2001 Norman, Okla.

OKLAHOMA 70 ORAL ROBERTS 64 NORMAN, Okla. - Oral Roberts could not hold on to a late lead, falling to secondseeded Oklahoma, 70-64. The announced crowd of 10,923 at the Lloyd Noble Center was the largest crowd ever to watch a women’s basketball game in the state of Oklahoma. ORU took a 54-51 lead on a Cori Williston three-point field goal with 6:48 remaining, and they held a 57-55 advantage after a Krista Ragan three-point play minutes later. But the game turned at the 4:02 mark, when Ragan was hit with her fifth personal foul and ORU was assessed a subsequent technical foul. The resulting free throws gave the Sooners a 62-57 lead, and OU was able to hold on.

March 19, 2005 Dallas, Texas

TEXAS 64 ORAL ROBERTS 47 DALLAS, Texas - Oral Roberts played No. 3 seed Texas to within a point in the second half, but a 16-point halftime deficit was too much to overcome in a 64-47 loss. Elisha Turek led all players with 21 points, while Nina Norman scored 20 points to lead Texas. Texas took control of the game by opening on an 8-1 run, and they ended the first half on a 13-4 run to build a 34-18 advantage. ORU shot 52.2% in the second half to stay within striking distance of the Longhorns. A three-pointer by Turek with 13:48 to play cut the gap to 41-30, the closest ORU got in the second period of play.

TENNESSEE 83 ORAL ROBERTS 62 KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - ORU’s legendary class of 2013 ended their careers on the greatest court in women’s basketball with an 83-62 loss to Tennessee at Thompson-Boling Arena. All-American Kevi Luper ended her career with a game-high 20-point effort, while fellow senior Savanna Buck scored 15 points in her final appearance. All-time ORU assist leader Jaci Bigham ended her collegiate career with three points. ORU scored the first four points and led the game for the first 3:31. But a seven-minute field goal drought that spanned the end of the first half and the opening stages of the second helped the Lady Vols build an insurmountable 26-point lead.

<<< Led by standout freshman Kevi Luper, the 2009-10 Golden Eagle squad won 23 games and set six single-season program records that will likely stand for many generations to come. Luperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s squad scored a program-record 85.1 points per game and was the first ORU team to accumulate more than 500 steals in a season. The club also set ORU records for three-point field goals, free throws, free throw attempts and assists. A year later, Luper set the pace for a 2010-11 Golden Eagle team that set Summit League records with 2,870 total points and 1,048 made field goals.
