• A 6-point loss earlier in the season snapped ORU's 10-game winning streak in the series against IUPUI. ORU still owns a 27-13 record all-time against the jaguars and is 9-7 on the road. In the first meeting on January 14, Martin led a cast of four Golden Eagles in double figures with 25 points.
• Albert Owens has been virtually unstoppable in Summit League play averaging 20.1 points and 5.8 rebounds per game in Summit League games. He has topped the 20 point mark eight times, including back-to-back career high 28-point performances against Omaha and North Dakota State.
• Last season, ORU had just one player (Obi Emegano) average in double figures scoring. This season, ORU has three above that mark; Albert Owens 17.0 ppg, Jalen Bradley 14.1 ppg and Kris Martin 14.0 ppg. All three have upped their scoring in league play; Owens 20.1 ppg, Bradley 14.5 ppg and Martin 14.3 ppg.
• Five times this season ORU has held an opponent to less than 30 points in a half; 21 (2nd) at Creighton, 21 (1st) and 27 (2nd) vs. Little Rock, 23 (1st) at South Dakota State and 29 (1st) vs. Western Illinois.
• USA Today picked the Golden Eagles to finish seventh, but tabbed freshman Dezmond McDaniel as the league's Rookie of the Year.
