Junior guard Kevi Luper firmly implanted her name in the ORU record books yet again, becoming the Golden Eagles' all-time leading scorer with 2,206 points in her three seasons. Luper, a two-time Summit League player of the year and defensive player of the year, is well on her way to a third honor posting averages of 23.8 points, 4.0 steals and 3.6 rebounds a night. Her mark passed Vivian Herron's record of 2,192 points has been on the books since 1989.

Luper already has made her way into the conference record books with a career-high 44 points on 19 made field goals against LaSalle Nov. 20, 2009, both benchmarks. She also holds Summit League season records for total points, average points per game, field goals made and attempted, and total free throws made and attempted. Luper picked up her conference-record 14th player of the week award Feb. 7, and is now 10 steals off the Summit League record of 384 set by Colleen Cook of Youngstown State (1994-98).

Her scoring prowess is certainly most impressive, however, where she's blown by the conference high mark of 2,105 points set by fellow ORU hooper Krista Ragan (1997-2002). Luper currently sits in third in the nation for steals per game (4.0) and fourth in points per game (23.8). The Golden Eagles have played their way to an 18-9 overall record and clinched the second seed in the Summit League Tournament with today's victory.
