IUPUI had the hot 11-1 start and all the headlines (well, here anyway), crimping Oral Roberts' hopes of avenging their agonizing near-miss
in last year's tourney. But on the last day of league play, ORU (18-11, 13-3) took advantage of an untimely IUPUI two-game skid, claimed a slice of the regular season championship, and clinched the tourney one-seed. Talk about "faith-based" basketball.A lot of ORU's recent resurgence been due with the return from a month-long DL stint -- and return to form -- of speedy guard Ken Tutt
(18 pts. yesterday), but it was the other Wonder Twin Power that sealed this one. There's certainly nothing cheap about a 27 and 15 dub-dub, his league-leading 15th of the year. He had more O-rebounds than D (8-7), and even though he went 9-of-16 from the line, his 214 FTM's for the year broke a school record.
