Oral Roberts @ Utah State
Current Records: Oral Roberts 3-2; Utah State 4-0
What to Know
The Oral Roberts Golden Eagles will take on the Utah State Aggies at 9 p.m. ET on Tuesday at Dee Glen Smith Spectrum. Both teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.
While not quite a landslide, the matchup between the Golden Eagles and the Oklahoma Baptist Prophets this past Saturday was still a pretty decisive one as Oral Roberts wrapped it up with a 98-86 win at home.
Meanwhile, Utah State skirted by the San Diego Toreros 91-89 this past Thursday thanks to a clutch half-court bomb from guard Steven Ashworth with 0:04 remaining. The Aggies relied on the efforts of forward Dan Akin, who posted a double-double on 21 points and 15 boards, and guard Max Shulga, who shot 5-for-5 from beyond the arc and finished with 20 points and five dimes.
The wins brought Oral Roberts up to 3-2 and Utah State to 4-0. Two numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Oral Roberts is stumbling into the contest with the 30th fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 11.2 on average. Utah States have had an even harder time: they are 18th worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only 10.8 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
