    First Ohio State. Now Florida. Oral Roberts is on a serious roll. Correct me if I'm wrong but Florida was pretty favored to go into at least the Elite 8 right? Well now its Oral Roberts in the Sweet Sixteen to take on Arkansas.

    Can they keep this up? How far will they go?

    Ohhhh man. I didn't know they beat Florida. I thought Florida was going to take them out. Now they have me interested! This is the kind of stuff I like to see out of the NCAA tourney. I'll be watching them throughout the rest of the tournament now.

    They certainly are kicking butt and taking names. History says that their luck will eventually run out, but who knows? Maybe they will surprise us all and make a deep run into the tourney.

    I'm sure Oral Roberts fans don't consider it luck. And I would have to agree.. looking at the team stats for both games the stat that pops for me is steals. They had 10/2 vs Ohio State and 12/7 vs Florida. That's enough to turn a tight game into your advantage.

    Though I do have to say looking at all the other stats like FG% and rebounds, it is a little bit of a wonder how they pulled off both wins. I think they have been playing clutch in the last few minutes so that's probably it.

    Here's hoping they have more magic left in the tank vs Arkansas.
