TULSA, Okla. — In a rare late-February non-conference game, Weber State ventures out of the Big Sky boosting a six-game win streak.

The Wildcats (19-5) will showcase their talent against Oral Roberts (17-10) in the Ramada BracketBusters tournament. A win would give WSU 20 regular-season victories for the fifth time in seven years.

This is the fourth time WSU has participated in the 11th annual BracketBuster tournament, which enters its final year before discontinuation, with a 1-2 record. It topped UT Arlington last season in Ogden.

The Golden Eagles utilize a pair of gunners in guard Warren Niles (19.1 ppg) and center Damen Bell-Holter (16.3 ppg ang 9.7 rpg). Niles currently ranks 25th nationally in scoring.
