While you were sleeping…
A great back and forth game at the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament, playing for the last time at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium before relocating to Evansville, Indiana in 2018.
Murray State started ice cold from the floor, hitting on 2 of their first 18 shots (but still managed to take 85 shots in 50 minutes) and outlasted a really gutsy effort by Tennessee Tech 85-84 in two overtimes. The game was nip-and-tuck for the entire night–neither team leading by as much as five points in either extra period. This was also coming off the heels of Southeast Missouri State taking five extra minutes in coming from behind to beat Tennessee State 78-75. A long, but exhausting night of basketball action–and yes, there is lots more to come.
See you all on Thursday.
