Oral Roberts Golden Eagles basketball notes:
What separates ORU from the usual mid-major looking for a first round upset is the frontcourt. Caleb Green and Larry Owens can battle with the big boys in the paint and on the glass, and that’s not even mentioning the biggest of them all, 6-11 center Mickey Michalec. The backcourt is not too shabby either with Ken Tutt, Chris Riouse and Jonathan Bluitt. Scott Sutton will go ten deep without a second thought. The talent level does drop a bit, but players like Moses Ehambe, Yemi Ogunoye and freshman Marchello Vealy can fill in adequately off the bench. The Golden Eagles were expected to make some major noise heading into the season, but a slew of early road losses kept ORU under the radar. If things fall right, this is a team that can surprise an unfortunate squad in the first round.
