• ORU and IUPUI have a history of close games, playing a total of 10 overtime periods over the years. Two of those have come in the last four contests.
• A win Thursday would get ORU back over the .500 mark for the season and be the first road win since topping Tulsa December 5.
• A loss Thursday would snap an eight-game winning streak within the series that includes a win in the tournament last year. ORU last lost to IUPUI 90-87 in OT January 14, 2010.
• ORU started the year 8-2, 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.
• 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.
