ROCHESTER, Mich. - Oakland (1-2) continues its seven-game road trip as the Golden Grizzlies take on Pittsburgh (3-0) this Saturday night, 7 p.m. ET, inside the Petersen Events Center. The game will be nationally-televised on ESPN3 and will air on OU's flagship station WDFN-AM (1130).

After winning the opener versus Albion, the Golden Grizzlies have dropped two straight road games at Louisiana (90-79) and Boise State (88-80). OU will face Pitt, No. 21 Michigan State (11/23) and Tennessee (11/26) in three of its next four games, squeezing in a game at Texas Southern (11/20) on Tuesday night. Oakland returns to the Athletics Center O'rena versus Rochester College (12/6).

Junior sharp-shooter Travis Bader needs just four points to reach 1,000. He will become the 31st player in school history to accomplish that feat.
