The East Tennessee State Buccaneers return to the SouthCon after leaving for the last seven years for the Atlantic Sun where they seemed to be constantly in the mix.

If you follow the Morehead State Eagles the past few years then you are well aware this team can score the basketball. They have in spurts this season but really turned on the jets in a 121-49 rout of sub division Kentucky Christian Saturday. This was a game of little value with Morehead leading by 31 at the break and still pressing the issue until the final buzzer. The Knights were held to 38% from the floor and 35 giveqways that gave the 63.6% shooting Eagles 27 more looks at the basket which were definitely not needed. Angelo Warner led five double digit scorers with 20 points, five pulls and five assists while Lyonell Gaines pumped in 19 points and snagged seven boards. Karam Mashour and Miguel Dicent tossed in 14 points each while Anthony Elechi adding ten points and 12 rebounds.
