Golden Eagles Shot Down in South Dakota

Posted: Updated:

The ORU women were hoping to have a good showing at South Dakota State Monday night.  A win would have pulled the Golden Eagles within one game of the conference lead.  But a poor shooting night results in a 70-51 loss.

ORU shot just 32% from the field.  Now the Golden Eagles are three games behind the Jackrabbits with five conference games to play.

Jaci Bigham did score a season-high 23 points.  But ORU star Kevi Luper was held to just nine.

Oral Roberts will try to rebound Saturday against Western Illinois. Tip-off is set for 2:05pm.
