TULSA, OK -- Oral Roberts University Athletics is looking to do its part to help the citizens of Tulsa cope with recent economic struggles.

Athletic Director Mike Carter announced on Wednesday a change in men's basketball single-game ticket prices. Beginning 9 a.m., Thursday all end zone seating in the lower level and all balcony tickets (subject to availability) will be on sale for the remainder of the season for $5 each per game.

ORU has won five straight games and is undefeated in the new year. The Golden Eagles are one-half game out of first place in the Summit League standings as they seek their fifth consecutive Summit title and fourth straight NCAA Tournament appearance.

ORU also plans to allow children to shoot layups on the Mabee Center floor following the final three Saturday home games.

The Golden Eagles host UMKC on Thursday, Jan. 22, and Southern Utah on Saturday, Jan. 24. Saturday's game is Hall of Fame Night. ORU will induct former head coach Ken Trickey and five others into the school's Athletic Hall of Fame during a halftime ceremony.

To order your tickets, contact the Mabee Center Ticket Office at (918) 495-6000.
