The women’s basketball team has been playing strong in its five game win streak where they’ve taken down two Top 25 ranked opponents along the way. The Sun Devils will be looking to extend their win streak to six when the 7-4 Oral Roberts Golden Eagles come to Tempe on Saturday.
Oral Roberts is also on a red-hot streak as they have won their last four games by an average of 23 points. The Golden Eagles’ great play began when they upset the now No. 20 ranked Oklahoma Sooners at home in Norman, Oklahoma.
ASU just recently got back into the AP Top 25 rankings at No. 23. This came after the Sun Devils improved to 7-2 by beating No. 19 ranked Kentucky in overtime with a last second shot by Sophie Brunner on the Wildcats’ home court, and then went to Murfreesboro to beat Middle Tennessee.
The Sun Devils are looking to stay inside the Top-25 and continue to ride their hot streak into conference play, which is only two games away. This matchup against the Golden Eagles could be crucial for the Sun Devils in both these aspects.
The Sun Devils and the Golden Eagles will tip off at 2:00 p.m. MST at the Wells Fargo Arena and the game will be available via online stream on the ASU Live Stream.
