2016-17 #TopORUMoments; #4 - ORU on SC Top 10 Four Times in Spring

TULSA, Okla. – With three baseball plays and a bicycle kick goal from Junior Chavez, Oral Roberts was featured on SportsCenter's Top 10 four times during a span of just over a month.

Nick Roark kicked off the highlights with a sliding catch against the wall in a 12-1 win at Kansas on February 28 and was number four on the daily countdown. Chavez's goal was the highest of the four highlights, coming in number two on the night.

Three of the four highlights came in less than a month, and ORU was the only school in the nation other than LSU to have at least three highlights make the Top 10 list during that span.
