OVC college basketball action continues Saturday with the Jacksonville State Gamecocks visiting the Morehead State Eagles.

The Jacksonville State Gamecocks saw their perfect 6-0 start in the OVC end with a thud with an 88-70 defeat at Eastern Kentucky on Thursday.

Jordan Walker carried the Eagles pouring in 20 points with four pulls while Lamontray Harris netted 12 points and hauled in eleven rebounds.

Morehead State saw eleven points and six pulls from Malek Green followed by De’Von Cooper and AJ Hicks with eight points each.

I know how bad Jacksonville State looked against Eastern Kentucky but that might have brought this number down a bit…

Jacksonville State -5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
