Quick Hits
• ORU is 3-2 all-time against Denver. Last year was the first time the two teams met as league opponents and the teams split the season series with each team winning on its home court.

A win Wednesday would get ORU back over the .500 mark for the season and be the first road victory since topping Tulsa December 5 (0-5 since).

A loss Wednesday would make it a seven-game losing streak, the longest since the 2000-01 season when ORU dropped seven straight.

• To start the year, ORU claimed the PSO Mayor's Cup for the third year in a row with a 70-68 win over Tulsa, and swept through the Men Against Breast Cancer Classic at  James Madison to win the tournament with a 3-0 record.

Albert Owens and Obi Emegano (MVP) were each named to the Men Against Breast Cancer Classic All-Tournament Team after helping ORU to a 3-0 record and tournament championship.

• ORU was picked to finish third in The Summit League in the preseason poll, although the Golden Eagles did pick up one first place vote. Obi Emegano, who has earned a league-best three Player of the Week honors already, was tabbed as the league's Player of the Year.
