It’s not unlikely for an NAIA team to face an NCAA D-I opponent in an exhibition contest.MACUvsORU

But for the same schools to meet more than once in various sports is not as common.  And one of the games is a regular season matchup.

Mid-America Christian and Oral Roberts will square off in women’s basketball on Nov. 8.  First-year Lady Evangels’ coach Marcus Moeller’s squad takes on a Golden Eagle team that reached the NCAA Tournament last season.

It will be the only exhibition game of the season for MACU and comes after the Lady Evangels will have two regular season games already in the books.

Mid-America Christian has also added a regular season game with Oral Roberts for its men’s soccer team.

The two will meet on Sept. 16 at Case Soccer Complex in Tulsa.

The Division I opponent seems appropriate for a program moving in the right direction.  MACU won nine games last year and made the SAC Tournament for the first time in program history.
