The Oral Roberts men's basketball team will seek redemption Saturday night, after the team's four-game winning streak was snapped in its last matchup against Denver.
The Golden Eagles are now 10-9 overall and 4-2 in conference.
ORU leads the overall series against the SDSU, 8-4, including four wins within the last five meetings, however; the Jackrabbits won the most recent meeting against the Golden Eagles (75-60).
South Dakota State is currently on a five-game winning streak, and post a 14-7 overall record and a 5-2 mark in league play.
Oral Roberts is 5-0 at home against South Dakota State.
If the Golden Eagles win Saturday night its home winning streak will increase to 12 games.
A loss Saturday will put ORU back to .500 on the season, and be the second loss in a row to the Jackrabbits. That would make for the first time since 2009 that the Golden Eagles lost back-to-back games against SDSU.
The game tips off at 7:00 p.m. and will be broadcast on ESPN3.
During the game's halftime, ORU will induct three former student-athletes into the ORU Athletic Hall of Fame.
Those athletes are: Steve Bontrager (men's basketball), Jessica Kellogg (women's soccer) and Pamela Ontiveros (women's golf).
