There are not too many college basketball teams who can claim stake to having won a basketball game at the Cintas Center in Cincinnati. Even the Dayton Flyers, Xavier’s chief arch-rival, who plays there every year, has never won at the Cintas Center.

It is the home of the Xavier Musketeers.

The Oral Roberts University Golden Eagles can say they won in the 11-year-old building.

Dominique Morrison scored 19 points to lead ORU over previously unbeaten Xavier, 64-42. The Musketeers had no rhythm in their play because they were missing three of its starters who were suspended.

The Golden Eagles (8-4) are a very experienced team starting three seniors and two juniors.

The 8-1 Musketeers were without star point guard Tu Holloway, shooting guard Mark Lyons and freshman forward Dez Wells who are the team’s top scorers. The trio were suspended for their part in a brawl eight days ago against the Cincinnati Bearcats.
