Morehead State hangs on to beat ETSU

The Eagles improve to 2-0 with a 71-63 road win.


Angelo Warner put the team on his back in the closing minutes of this one. With the game tied at 57, Warner hit a three and a lay-up to put the Eagles up five. Right when ETSU responded with a three of their own, Warner splashed another from behind the arc.

He scored 11 of his team's final 13 points and finished with 25 total points for the game.

Morehead State trailed 31-25 at the half but battled back quickly to tie it early in the second.

Reshawn Rembert finished with 21 points and 4 assists for ETSU.

In other OVC action:

Tennessee Tech 74 Loyola-Chicago 69

In a game that was tied with 6:25 left to play, the Golden Eagles were able to hit some clutch free throws down the stretch to escape with the win.

Tennessee Tech had four players in double figures led by Dennis Ogbe who had 14.

Chicago State 79 Jacksonville State 75

JSU shot over 52% from behind the arc but that wasn't enough as the Gamecocks fall to 0-3 on the season. This was certainly a game Jacksonville State could have won even after falling behind by 17 in the first half.

After free throws by Brian Williams the game was tied at 70 with under 6 minutes to play in the game. However, Quinton Pippen, who led the Cougars with 20 points, nailed a big three pointer to allow Chicago State to hang on for the win.

Murray State 97 Brescia 69

This was game went as expected with Murray State picking up their first win of 2013. Jeffery Moss led the Racers with 21 and Dexter Fields added 20 and hit 4 threes.

Jarvis Williams picked up his first of what should be many double-doubles with 14 points and just as many boards.

Tomorrow's OVC action:

We've already seen St. Louis destroy SEMO so we'll see if the Billikins can take down their second straight OVC opponent when they travel to Edwardsville, Illinois.

Then at 7:05 the Skyhawks of UT-Martin travel to Arkansas State. Martin has struggled early but I think this is a game UTM might be able to pull out as the Red Wolves weren't all that impressive in their win over Jackson State a couple days ago.

Tomorrow's schedule (All times central):

Eastern Kentucky vs Warren Wilson 6PM

Eastern Illinois vs Olivet Nazarene 7PM

SIU-E vs Saint Louis 7PM

UT-Martin @ Arkansas State 7:05 PM (Game of the night)
