Morehead St. men
are OVC champions

NASHVILLE (AP) — Morehead State is going dancing.
The Eagles won the OVC Tournament and an automatic berth in the NCAAs via an 80-73 win over Tennessee Tech on Saturday.
Demonte Harper had 27 points and 11 rebounds, while playing in his home town.  Kenneth Faried notched his 27th double-double with 24 points and 15 rebounds.
No. 4 seed Tennessee Tech (20-12) upset regular-season champion Murray State to reach its first championship game since 2003.
But the Golden Eagles couldn’t overcome cold shooting in their attempt to reach the NCAAs for the first time since 1963. Coach Mike Sutton came into the postgame interview room to shake Faried’s hand and wish him well.
