Scott Sutton has come a long way since he entered the Oral Roberts University basketball program in 1995 as a color radio announcer along side play-by-play man Al Jerkens. He became an administrative assistant then an assistant coach to Bill Self and later Barry Hinson. When Hinson left in 1999, the head position was given to Sutton, who has steadily built the team into a strong contender to enter the NCAA tournament.
Look for the ORU team to win its conference tournament and enter the Big Dance. ORU dominated Tulsa basketball through the mid-to late 1970s. The domination appears to be back.
