ORU Kansas City Basketball

After playing at Oklahoma State the past two years, Oral Roberts will host the Cowboys on Nov. 26.

The return game of a home-and-home announced last year, the matchup at the updated Mabee Center will pit teams coming off NCAA Tournament appearances. OSU prevailed by five points in each of the past two meetings.

The Cowboys lead the series 18-5 but haven’t visited ORU since Jan. 29, 1997, when the Golden Eagles won 71-60. The teams, separated by 79 miles, also played a neutral-site game in Oklahoma City in 2007, with ORU winning 74-59.

“I do think that it will be one of the larger crowds,” ORU coach Paul Mills said last year after the announcement. “One, given the fact that a number of Oklahoma State fans are in Tulsa. Two, Stillwater fans can travel given the proximity. ... To get a Big 12 opponent at home from the state is a big deal.”
