Nashville, TN (SportsNetwork.com) -
The second of two Ohio Valley Conference Tournament finalists will be decided with the winner of the third-seeded Eastern Kentucky Colonels taking on the second-seeded Murray State Racers at Municipal Auditorium in Nashville.
Eastern Kentucky took down an offensive-minded OVC power in Southeast Missouri State Thursday night in quarterfinal round action, 84-76, to advance to the semifinals. The Colonels have now won five games in a row dating back to the regular season.
Murray State, having won five of its last six games of the season entering the tournament, is actually coming into postseason play on a bit of a down note. The Racers were defeated in double-overtime by Southeast Missouri State, 118-115, in the season finale Saturday. Despite the loss, the Racers were awarded the second seed after going 13-3 in conference play, which gave them the automatic double-bye into the semifinal round.
