The Morehead State Eagles host the Bowling Green Falcons in Sunday afternoon action.
After a slow start to the season Bowling Green has turned things arond a bit but at 4-5 there is still plenty of work to be done. The offense broke the 70 point mark for the third straight game following a 79-69 victory over visiting North Dakota behind red hot 55% shooting. The Falcons turned 24 personals in to 23-6 advantage at the line while the defense limited the Fighting Sioux to 42%. Richaun Holmes led four double digit scorers with 21 points and 14 rebounds with Spencer Parker next in line with 19 points and eight boards while Cameron Black and Jehvon Clarke tossed in 13 and 12 points.

In the early going it looks like Morehead State is leaning more on their scoring then defense as they have out scored the opposition 77-71 on average. That's okay as long as the points are flowing but that wasn't the case in a 74-60 defeat at Southern Mississippi despite 46.5% shooting thanks to 24 turnovers which gave the Golden Eagles another eleven attempts to make their 46% marksmanship look great. Angelo Warner led all scorers with 20 points on 7-12 shooting and seven turnovers while Luka Pajkovic netted 19 with Chad Posthumus adding 16 points and hauling in 15 rebounds. Drew Kelly chipped in with five points but nobody else scored a point.
I'm not completely sold on Bowling Green away from home especially when facing what I think is a better team. I'm backing the points but this might be a stretch...
