The Morehead State Eagles are difficult to nail down at times but I do think they are dangerous and will be in the postseason somewhere. The Eagles appeared ready to go off on a big roll with three consecutive victories before suffering an 84-82, overtime defeat at Eastern Illinois as a 6.5 point road favorite. The Panthers had a 47.5%-43% shooting advantage with an extra basket from EIU being about the only difference. Corban Collins gave Morehead State a game high 28 points and five yanks on 10-16 from the floor followed by a 17 point effort by Xavier Moon on 7-10 from the field while Ronyye Beamon and DeJuan Marrero combined for 17 points.
Tennessee Tech are 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 road games. The over is 9-2 in Morehead State last 11 vs. Ohio Valley and the Eagles are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Thursday games while the over is 6-2 in MORE last 8 overall. Morehead has dominated this series but I think this Golden Eagles squad has more backbone then before…
