One more OVC team found their way into the win column tonight, while two more continue to struggle.

And it may be already getting to some players.

One player, who I won’t name here, tweeted last night:

“Hoopin is suppose to be fun….. #frustrated”

It’s always more fun when you’re winning, I suppose.

Here’s tonight’s final word:

[Asbury College 48, Morehead 100] It was a double double-double night for Morehead State as both Drew Kelly and Milton Chavis notched double-doubles in the rout of Asbury. 5 Eagles would finish in double digits, thanks in part to 24 steals by the Eagles. Not much you can say bad about this game, except that every opponent isn’t Asbury College.

[SIU Edwardsville 38, Illinois State 68] Even Cougars fans are starting to see it: where does the scoring come from? SIUE is now just 29% from the field this season. That’s it. The funny thing about that…they’re better from 3-point range (36.4%) than 2-point range (25.7%) 38 points will not cut it…except maybe against Tennessee State.

[UT Martin 45, Arkansas State 63] 16 turnovers. You know I had to go there, and now I have. 16 isn’t bad, considering the first two games.Of course 5 of those came from Troy King. You think they miss Terrance Smith? They did have 13 assists on 18 made baskets, but were out rebounded by 11

[Tennessee Temple 41, Murray State 83] Another win, and it’s likely the last easy one they’ll see for a long while. Looking at opponents FG%, you might think the Racers defense isn’t playing well. But they don’t give their opponents chances to shoot. Still curious to see what happens when they face a good ball handling team (like Eastern Kentucky) Full Recap
