ROCHESTER, MICH. (AP) - The easiest way to measure Oakland University’s basketball success is by mentioning the school’s name and watching for the reaction.

More and more people are learning that the Golden Grizzlies are based in Michigan, not California.

Oakland has become the Summit League’s dominant program. Although a loss last weekend ended a 20-game regular-season winning streak in conference play, the Golden Grizzlies still lead the league by 2 1/2 games and are eyeing their second straight trip to the NCAA tournament.

Oakland lost big in the first round to Pittsburgh last year, but after beating Tennessee and playing Michigan State close in December, the Golden Grizzlies are hoping for an extended postseason run this time.
