What to Know
After two games on the road, the UT Martin Skyhawks are heading back home. The Skyhawks and the Morehead State Eagles will face off in an Ohio Valley battle at 9 p.m. ET on Wednesday at Skyhawk Arena. UT Martin has some work to do to even out the 2-8 series between these two since January of 2016, but a win here would be a good start.
On Saturday, UT Martin lost to the Eastern Illinois Panthers on the road by a decisive 82-70 margin.
Meanwhile, Morehead State entered their game against the Murray State Racers on Saturday without any home losses -- but there's a first time for everything. It was close but no cigar for Morehead State as they fell 57-53 to MSU. Forward Johni Broome (14 points) and guard Jake Wolfe (12 points) were the top scorers for the Eagles.
The Skyhawks are expected to lose this next one by 9. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the team has let down bettors in their past three games.
These two teams will surely be fighting tooth and nail to get back into the win column after losses this week. We'll see which team satisfies their hunger and which team leaves with an empty stomach.
