The Golden Eagles play their home games at the Mabee Center which opened in 1972 and seats over 11,000 fans. The atmosphere at the Mabee Center is among the best in the Summit League with a very family friendly vibe. Oral Roberts is a Christian school so you know the kids will be able to have a good time without any problems. The seats are comfortable and they all have a great view of the court.
The Golden Eagles are part of the Summit League includes teams such as Denver, IPFW, IUPUI, Nebraska Omaha, North Dakota State, South Dakota, South Dakota State and Western Illinois. These teams will be trying to get the automatic NCAA Tournament bid by winning the Summit League Tournament. They will also be trying to win the regular season championship to assure themselves an automatic bid to one of the other tournaments.
