"Praise The Lord & Pass The Ball" ORU Basketball Documentary

Recommended Posts

Old Titan

Happy now to share details on the upcoming documentary "Praise The Lord & Pass The Ball", focusing on the meteoric rise of ORU basketball in the early 70's.

Following several months of planning and several days of shooting interviews in Tulsa and Nashville, the project has now reached the editing and post-production stage, and a Kickstarter.com site has been established to complete the financing, which to this point has been footed by former ORU coach Ken Trickey's daughter and son:

This is a fantastic project that will provide a legacy of the glory years of "ORU Titan" basketball for generations to come.  Here's hoping that ORU basketball fans young and old will contribute to this endeavor, so a finished product can be realized as soon as possible!

Here's a link to the Facebook page for the "Praise The Lord & Pass The Ball" documentary project - some great old photos on here of the glory days; feel free to post your own recollections of ORU Basketball from that time, if you have them!

If you haven't seen the Kickstarter.com page for the "Praise The Lord & Pass The Ball" documentary on the early days of ORU Basketball, you should REALLY check it out.  It's full of LOTS of classic photos and details of ORU's rise from a start-up college basketball program to an overtime loss with Kansas in the Elite Eight.  GREAT STUFF!

Here's where you can help the Trickey family realize their dream of creating a permanent record of the glory years of "ORU Titan" basketball:

Mabee Center 1972-76 has some great basketball and special event memories for TheEagleman....i was at many concerts because i worked on the clean up crew for a couple years to make extra money....i was there for Elvis....and John Denver as I recall....was at just about every basketball game including the opener vs. Wisconsin....NCAA games vs. Louisville and Kansas...the KU loss still stings 45 years later....ouch!..😪
