OPENING SERVE

► The Oral Roberts volleyball team enters the 2015 Summit League Tournament as the No. 6 seed after a three-match skid to end the season. The Golden Eagles will look for revenge against Omaha in their Quarterfinal match as the Mavericks swept the season series.

► Sophomore Laura Milos posted one of the best offensive seasons in ORU and Summit League history as she enters the weekend with 575 kills and averaged 5.13 kills per set. She ranks fourth in both the school and conference single-season record books for total kills and her kills average ranks second.

► As Milos continued to push towards Summit League Player of the Year and All-American honor, she set a ORU and Summit League record with 12 service aces 10/25 against South Dakota State. The mark was a NCAA single-match and also the most service aces since 2011 for any school at the Division I level.

► Setter, Lucija Bojanjac is kept an impressive pace for the ORU offense. Bojanjac leads The Summit League with 10.88 assist per set which also ranks 39th nationally. She set a career-high with 69 assists in a loss at IUPUI.

► Milos finishes the regular season second in the nation in kills (575) and kills per set (5.13) behind only Carnae Dillard of North Texas. Dillard - who beat ORU on Sept. 19 - leads the nation with 5.43 kills per set and 651 total kills.

► As a team the Golden Eagles rank in the top 50 nationally in aces per set. ORU averages 1.55 ace per set this season leads The Summit League while Milos ranks 11th on the national level at 0.48 aces per set.
