Following a day-long spat between the Ohio Valley Conference and fans of Murray State, the Ohio Valley Conference has apoligized for their role:
The Ohio Valley Conference would like to apologize for the messages sent out on social media on Friday morning as they were not meant to disrespect any of our fans.
As a Conference office we are proud of all 12 of our member institutions and our goal is to support each of them equally. We want to congratulate Murray State on their CIT Championship as we are immensely proud of their accomplishment in being one of four teams to end their seasons with a national tournament championship.
As you may know the Ohio Valley Conference is the host institution for the 2014 Women’s Final Four and our entire staff has been busy all year planning for this major event. Because of those duties we were not immediately able to respond to happenings on social media.
Please accept our apology for those messages and their tone.
