Oral Roberts protected from hype as No. 15 seed in Sweet 16

Oral Roberts will avoid some of the distractions Florida Gulf Coast had to deal with during its NCAA Sweet 16 run in 2013. The team known as Dunk City was the first No. 15 seed to make it past the first weekend of the tournament. Oral Roberts is the second. Oral Roberts is in the tournament bubble in Indianapolis as a precaution against COVID-19. There will be limited access to players and coaches before Saturday’s game against Arkansas. Michael Fly was an assistant on the 2013 FGCU team. He says the media frenzy took a toll.
