Final from Nashville, Tennessee

OVC Tournament - Championship Game

Former Lexington Christian Academy star Taylor Barnette nailed a long three-pointer to give the Belmont Bruins the OVC Tournament championship and a trip to the NCAA Tournament.

Barnette, who was named MVP of the tournament, finished with 9 points.

Craig Bradshaw led the Bruins with 25 points. Evan Bradds finished with 21 points and 11 rebounds. Nick Smith contributed 16 points.

Belmont (22-10) was 33-65 (50.8%) from the field and nailed 15-38 (39.5%) from long range.

T.J. Sapp led Murray State (27-5) with 28 points on 10-17 shooting. Cameron Payne added 20 points and 10 assists. Jeffery Moss had 12.

The Racers will now wait to see if they earn an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament. If not, they will be forced to settle for an NIT berth.
