NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Jordan Cyphers tied a career high with 23 points as Tennessee State defeated Morehead State 88-75 in quarterfinal action at the Ohio Valley Conference tournament Thursday night.

The Tigers (18-13) shot 81.5 percent (22 of 27) from the foul line.

The Eagles pulled within 59-56 on Bakari Turner's 3-pointer midway through the 2nd half, but the Tigers quickly rebuilt the lead to double digits and cruised to the finish.

Drew Kelly had 16 points and Angelo Warner 15 for Morehead State.
