SS PODCAST: Oral Roberts basketball coach Paul Mills on his team's Sweet 16 run, glorifying God

THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
WITH JASON ROMANO, FEATURING PAUL MILLS

Paul Mills is the men’s basketball head coach at Oral Roberts University. He stepped into the position in April 2017, after 14 years (2003-2017) an assistant coach at Baylor under Scott Drew.

In March, Mills led Oral Roberts on an improbable NCAA Tournament run that saw the 15th-seeded Golden Eagles defeat No. 2 seed Ohio State and No. 7 seed Florida to advance to the Sweet 16, before losing to Arkansas, 72-70. They were just the second 15-seed to ever advance to the Sweet 16 in the history of the NCAA Tournament.

Today on the podcast, we talk to Coach Mills about his team’s incredible March Madness run, the lessons learned from success and defeat, using the national platform as an opportunity to share the Gospel, and his love for the movie “Hoosiers.”
