Oral Roberts University has made it a habit of playing up for the big games. Every season since 2002-03, has pulled off at least one upset of a power conference or Top 25-ranked team.
This season, the Golden Eagles earned the trifecta, defeating Stanford, Missouri and No. 12 New Mexico, all in the course of a month.
Golden Eagle Head Coach Scott Sutton earned his 200th win at home against Sentenary on Feb. 16.
Sutton is a two-time Summit League Coach of the Year, 2002 and 2008. He earned District 12 Coach of the Year in 2005, sharing the award with his father. In 2007, Sutton was a finalist for the Clair Bee Coaching Excellence Award.
Since the start of the 2001-02 season, Sutton has posted four 20-win seasons, four consecutive Summit League regular-season titles, 2005-08, and three straight Tournament berths, 2006-08.
