NCAA Game Summary - Tennessee-Martin at Murray State



(Thursday, February 28)

Final Score: Tennessee-Martin 69, Murray State 68

Murray, KY (Sports Network) - Mike Liabo scored 20 points to lead the Tennessee-Martin Skyhawks to a 69-68 victory over the Murray State Racers in an Ohio Valley Conference clash at the CFSB Center.

Myles Taylor shot 9-of-11 at the free-throw line, en route to 15 points for UTM (9-19, 5-10 OVC) which avenged a loss to the Racers earlier this season.

Isaiah Canaan poured in a game-high 31 points for MSU (20-8, 10-5) while Ed Daniel went for 19 points and 12 rebounds, his 14th double-double of the season.

UTM made 6-of-10 from 3-point range in the opening period, while the Racers failed to knock down an outside shot on nine attempts. Despite outrebounding UTM 19-9, Murray State trailed 36-27 at halftime.

MSU tied the score at 40-40 at the 14:46 mark on a Canaan triple. UTM quickly regained its composure and held a slim advantage for the rest of the second half until another Canaan 3-pointer cut the Skyhawks' lead to 67-65 with 1:02 remaining.

It became a free-throw contest from that moment on and UTM prevailed despite BJ McLaughlin missing both of his attempts at the line with five seconds left and the Skyhawks holding a 69-68 edge. Canaan's last-second prayer was off the mark.

UTM won thanks in large part to its bench, which outscored the MSU reserves, 21-5.
