Oral Roberts faces North Dakota State on Monday, March 7th, 2022 at the Denny Sanford Premier Center for a college basketball Summit League Tournament Semifinal matchup.
Oral Roberts took down Western Illinois in the quarterfinals by the final score of 80-68 late on Sunday night. Oral Roberts is of course the defending Summit League champs and is coming off a cinderella performance in last year's NCAA Tournament, going to the Sweet 16 with wins over Ohio State and Florida. Oral Roberts is 19-11 and 12-6 in Summit League play this season. Oral Roberts is also 14-12-1 against the spread this season. Oral Roberts is still led by its high-scoring point guard in Max Abmas, as he leads the team in points per game with 22.7 and assists per game with 3.8. Oral Roberts as a team has scored 83.7 points per game and has shot the ball at a 46.0% clip from the field. Oral Roberts has also allowed 73.8 points per game to its opponents as well.
North Dakota State blew out Denver in its Summit League quarterfinal matchup with a final score of 82-62. North Dakota State is the #2 seed in this conference tournament and owns a 13-5 conference record this season. NDSU is also 22-9 overall this season and 14-15-0 against the spread on the year as well. North Dakota State swept the season series over Oral Roberts in the regular season, beating the Golden Eagles 72-71 and 77-59. North Dakota State's leading scorer this season is F Rocky Kreuser, who has scored 16.0 points per game and has earned 7.9 rebounds per game as well. North Dakota State as a team has scored 74.5 points per game and has shot the ball at a 45.6% clip from the field. North Dakota State has also allowed 68.4 points per game to its opponents as well.
North Dakota State is a 3-point favorite and the total is set at 151. North Dakota State is the favorite for a reason as not only are the Bison the higher seed but they did sweep ORU in the regular season. With that being said, Oral Roberts' offense is loaded and with a guy like Abmas on the roster, it is never easy to take down this team in a tournament setting. I think this game comes down to the wire and we could see overtime, but in the end, I want to have the points with Oral Roberts as this game could be decided by a point or two either way.
