EKU Hosts Murray In Matchup Of Two High-Scoring Players

Eastern Kentucky University

Eastern Kentucky University’s men’s basketball team hosts Murray State Saturday  night at McBrayer Arena.  

The Colonel-Racer matchup in Richmond pits two marquis players.  Murray State guard Ja Morant has garnered a lot of print nationally as a high NBA draft prospect.  He tossed in 32 points last night as Murray held on to beat Austin Peay 73 to 71. 

Meanwhile, EKU’s all-time leading scorer Nick Mayo also tallied 32 points in his team’s loss to arch rival Morehead 78 to 72.  EKU is trying to climb its way into the post-season OVC tournament while Murray is tied for first in the league with Belmont. 

Tipoff tomorrow night is scheduled for 7:00.
