    Morehead State 80 Tennessee Tech 73

    MSU wins the OVC and the automatic bid.

    Faried and Harper end up dominating, but they tried to give it away.

    Time to Cha-Cha-Cha.

    Got very nervous there at the end, but we're dancing! This is the only reason I'm not too upset about the Duke game...

    Rough stretch down the stretch but the Faried flush was the nail in the coffin. Congrats to MSU.

    Nice win for Morehead. It's awesome to see them go back to the dance. That was the worst display of ball handling I've ever seen in the last 4 minutes but I'll take it. Faried and Harper were beast last night! Can't wait to see where they will play. Any chance they don't get a 16 seed this year?

    Great to see Morehead win another OVC tourney, I always pull for them or EKU to win that conference.
    Congrats to the bgp/MSU alums and fans.

    I agree on all points made. As for the seed, I would have to say a 16 sed, possibly 15 but the result will be he same....loss. A typical OVC showing. jmo

    Unfortunately, I think you're right. I think MSU is a PG away from having a really good team. A rematch with Ohio State may be a possiblity.

    Hey guys, I had to drive back from Nashville after the game but I'll have a ton of videos and pictures coming up soon for the MSU fans. Great times for the Eagles. The image of Donnie Tyndall crying like a baby is as good as it gets.

    Good chance. Especially with a storyline like Faried. I'm betting that they give them a 15 and a shot at the upset. You think BYU wants to draw Morehead?

    I think Morehead gets a 15-seed. They play like a 14-seed but the OVC winner won't get that much respect.

    Here is raw video of the postgame celebration immediately after the teams shook hands:

    Morehead will give whomever they play a tough game in the 1st Round.

    Last year Murray State won first round then gave Butler their toughest match until Duke. But yes, typically not a good showing. The Eagles do have an NBA caliber player which is not common for an OVC team.

    I honestly think Morehead's best draw would be a 15 seed against BYU. I think they could give them some trouble. Or any team with a weakness down low. I could see Morehead St giving UK fits (although I doubt we will ever find out).
