Denver (1-10, 0-4) faced Oral Roberts University (8-6, 5-1) Saturday afternoon in a rematch. Once again, Denver was ice cold from the field and turned the ball over 16 times in the nine-point loss to ORU. Despite the final result, Denver continues to show resilience, continually battling back from deficits to make games close in the final minutes but unable to finish games with a ‘W’.
Oral Roberts University (7-6, 4-1) played Denver (1-9, 0-3) Friday afternoon.

The Pioneers held Obanor at bay (11 points) but 34 points from Abmas and 14 by Glaspar were enough to earn a tight victory for the visitors, 88-84.
