2014-15 #TopORUMoments; #3 – ORU Sweeps PSO Mayor’s Cup

TULSA, Okla. –  For the first time since 2007, the Oral Roberts men's and women's basketball teams swept the PSO Mayor's Cup as both teams topped Tulsa inside the Mabee Center during the 2014-15 season.

The men's basketball team opened the season with a 77-68 win in front of more than 6,500 fans at the Mabee Center November 15. It was the second year in a row in which the men have won the crosstown rivalry game.  The Golden Eagles used a multiple extended runs during the game, including a 13-0 run to make it 60-43 with 6:21 to play.

Obi Emegano had 26 points, including a 14-of-16 effort from the free throw line, while Korey Billbury added 18 points and 11 rebounds.

The women's team followed suit a week later on November 22, winning a thrilling 73-71 game to reclaim the PSO Mayor's Cup for the first time since 2012.  Bernadett Balla had 19 points, while eventual All-American Vicky McIntyre finished with eight points, 15 rebounds and nine blocks. 

After trailing the majority of the second half, Dorottya Balla drilled a 3-pointer with just over two minutes left to give ORU a lead. McIntyre sealed the deal with a turn-around jumper with 58 seconds left.
