TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Oral Roberts University has announced plans to return to the Summit League after spending the past two seasons in the Southland Conference.

ORU announced Thursday it will rejoin the Summit League in all sports beginning July 1, 2014.

ORU spent 15 seasons in the Summit League before leaving for the SLC. ORU athletic director Mike Carter says the SLC's expansion to 14 teams reduced some of ORU's primary objectives in moving - including reduced travel costs and developing rivalries with some schools in the SLC.
