Thanks to an ORU win over Central Arkansas and some help from other teams, the ORU Lady Golden Eagles earned a share in the regular season championship and the number-one seed for the Southland Conference Tournament.
With a win in Saturday’s game against Central Arkansas, the ORU women’s basketball team could clinch the second seed in the Southland Conference Tournament. But there were bigger things to come for ORU. The top seed in the tournament and a share of the regular season conference championship were still obtainable.
In order to get a share of the regular season championship, ORU needed Sam Houston State to get upset by Northwestern State. Coming into
the day, Sam Houston was first in the standings and Northwestern was eighth.
