EKU in Must-Win Situation vs. Morehead State Tonight

If the Eastern Kentucky Colonels (10-16, 3-8 OVC) hope to make the OVC Tournament in Nashville, they almost have to beat Morehead State tonight in Richmond.

With 5 conference games remaining, EKU is currently 3-8 in the OVC and sitting in 11th place. Only SIU Edwardsville is behind the Colonels in the league standings.

Eastern Illinois and Austin Peay both have 4 wins, but both own wins over EKU.

Murray State sits at 6-5 in OVC play, while Tennessee Tech and Tennessee State both have 6-6 records.

With one of EKU's remaining games being against undefeated Belmont, it would seem that Dan McHale's club must knock off Morehead State (12-12, 8-3) tonight if they want to hold onto any hope of postseason play.
