Eastern Kentucky University’s men’s basketball team is gaining momentum after a big conference win Thursday night.  The victory puts the Colonels in a solid position during the stretch run of league play.

EKU jumped out to a 30-3 lead over Tennessee State  and ended up winning the Ohio Valley Conference game 83-62.  The Colonels are 11-4 in the OVC, and just one game behind Belmont who comes to Richmond Saturday night. 

With Thursday night’s victory, Eastern secured a top four seed and a first round bye in the upcoming conference tournament in Evansville the first weekend in March. 

Not forgotten, but in the past is an eight game losing streak EKU had from November 22nd through December 28th.  Tipoff for Saturday night’s game in McBrayer Arena is 7:00.?
