Summit League Releases Men's Basketball Schedule

2017-18 ORU Men's Basketball Schedule

ELMHURST, Ill. – The Summit League announced its 2017-18 men's basketball schedule today with each of the eight teams slated to play a 14-game double round-robin schedule beginning Saturday, Dec. 30.

  • 56 total league games, starting Dec. 30 and ending Feb. 24
  • Each team plays 14 games, facing every other team both home-and-away
  • Omaha hosts South Dakota State in the first championship game rematch, Jan. 6

Oral Roberts starts Summit League play at home against Omaha December 30, the first of three straight home games to start the league slate. It will be the first time since the 2013-14 season in which ORU has opened league play at home.

After hosting UNO, Fort Wayne and Western Illinois will come to the Mabee Center to start the new year. ORU will then travel to the Dakotas to play at South Dakota State, North Dakota State and North Dakota in a week's span.

A home game against Denver January 20 breaks up a span of five of six games on the road as ORU heads back out to face Fort Wayne and Western Illinois to start the second half of league play. The Golden Eagles will have a break from January 20-February 1 without a Summit League game after the departure of IUPUI, and will likely step out of league play to fill the gap.

North Dakota State, South Dakota State and South Dakota all come to Tulsa between February 8 -14, and ORU will finish the regular season at Denver (February 18) and Omaha (February 22) before heading to Sioux Falls for the Summit League Tournament March 3-6.

The nonconference schedule is still being finalized and will be released soon.
