Murray State Travels to Morehead State for Important OVC Showdown Tonight

The Murray State Racers will travel to Morehead State for a key OVC showdown with the Eagles tonight.

Both teams are currently in second place in their respective divisions with the winner of tonight's game going a long ways towards securing at least a single bye in the OVC Tournament.

Murray State is in a three-way battle with UT Martin and SEMO for the top two spots in the West.

Morehead State, under the direction of interim head coach Preston Spradlin, is surprisingly sitting in second in the East. Unless they shut their program down this week, Belmont is going to win the East but the Eagles have an excellent chance to finish second.

Tonight's game tips off at 7:00 p.m. ET in Morehead.
