Facing off on their home court arena against Big 12 Conference rivals the Texas Tech Red Raiders, the Oral Roberts University Golden Eagles dribble, dunk, and alley-oop their way through four exhilarating quarters. Up to 10,500 spectators can scrutinize and encourage every shot, rebound, and misdirection vaudeville act by seniors Michael Craion, Dominique Morrison, and the rest of the adroit roster. Home to the Golden Eagles since 1972, the Mabee Center’s elliptical cable-suspension structure was erected specifically for basketball games. In addition to Golden Eagles games and nine national tournaments, the 105,000-square-foot facility has hosted such big-name acts as Elvis Presley, Justin Bieber, and Cinnamon, the Karaoke Squirrel.
