The ORU men's basketball team hit the road on Tuesday to take on Denver Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. 

A win for the Golden Eagles will advance its four-game winning streak to five, while a loss will snap the team's longest win streak since the 2012-2013 season.

ORU won its last game 62-58 against IPFW. Obi Emegano led the team in scoring with 15 points; Aaron Young trailed right behind him with 14.

The Golden Eagles are now 4-1 in conference play, and tied with North Dakota State for first place in the Summit League. The Pioneers are currently 8-10 on the season, and 2-3 in the Summit.

Wednesday night's matchup won't be the first time the two teams have faced-off, but it will be the first time playing as conference opponents. Oral Roberts leads 2-1 in the overall series against Denver. The two games that the Golden Eagles won were played at home, while the one game ORU lost was played on the road.

The game will be televised on ROOT Sports.
