Little Rock vs. Morehead State Prediction

I’m on Morehead State here. From the beginning of the tournament I’ve been saying that I think Morehead State is the best team in the OVC, and had the Eagles not slipped up down the stretch, this team would’ve won the regular season title. Morehead State’s been the better team statistically throughout conference play and I think that for one more game, the Eagles hold that fact true. Give me Morehead State to get the win, cover and go dancing.
