INDIANAPOLIS - Oakland (5-9, 0-1) continues its road swing at IUPUI (6-10, 1-2) this Saturday in a Summit League men's basketball contest at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Game time is at 3 p.m. ET and can be heard on OU's flagship station at WDFN-AM (1130) with Mario Impemba (play-by-play) and Neal Ruhl (color).
The Golden Grizzlies have lost three straight at IUPUI, one of those games being played at the Fieldhouse in 2011. OU is trying to avoid its first 0-2 league start since 2005-06, the only time the Grizzlies began a Summit League season 0-2.
