So I’ve got a confession: I went to bed before the Murray game last night.

I watched it when I woke up this morning.

But I missed it live.

I blame Alaska for this.

Here’s yesterday’s final word:

[Princeton 56, Morehead State 68] The halftime score of this contest: 20-18 Morehead State. Yeah, it was a really exciting half of basketball. Terrance Hill has another standout game for the Eagles, scoring a game high 16 points. The Eagles were an efficient 6 of 11 from 3-point range, while the Tigers hit just 5 of 25 attempts from long range.
[Morgan State 64, Tennessee State 69] 4 starters score in double figures, as the Tigers shoot the lights out from 3-point range, sending a good Morgan State team to 0-6 on the year. Tennessee State came back from an 11-point deficit in the second half, not taking the lead until the final 2 minutes. The Tigers got the win despite the absence of Kenny Moore, who did not play for unknown reasons.
[Miami (OH) 67, SEMO 64] Full Recap This was a solid win for SEMO, who overcame 30% shooting and a 22 point first half. Big shots from Nick Niemczyk and 2nd half turnovers fueled a 42 point second half for Southeast, who now have to head to coach Dickie Nutt‘s former school, Arkansas State. Leon Powell found himself in foul trouble yet again, playing just 19 minutes thanks to 3 1st half fouls.
[Central Arkansas 107, Eastern Illinois 96 2OT] Full Recap Magic number 6. That’s how many turnovers Eastern Illinois forced in 50 minutes. That’s it. 6. This is a loss to hide from. Another solid outing for Jeremy Granger, who had a game high 27 points.
[Middle Tennessee 90, Austin Peay 70] I’m not entirely sure where Austin Peay will find wins in the non-conference season. They over scheduled, plain and simple. The Blue Raiders hit 65% from the field, compared to just 36% for the Governors. The only bright spot is that the Governors did force 20 turnovers.
[Murray State 90, Southern Miss. 81 2OT] Murray is loudly making it known they will be a team to beat again in the OVC this year. Despite scoring just 3 points in the first overtime, the Racers hit 50% from the field for the game, led by 36 points (thanks to 6-11 3-point shooting) from this week’s Unsung Hero of the Week and next week’s OVC player of the week Isaiah Canaan.
