College Basketball action on Wednesday evening and the Ohio Valley Conference will square off with the Southeastern Conference as the Morehead State Eagles rumble with the Missouri Tigers at Mizzou Arena, Columbia, Missouri. These teams last met last year and the Tigers won 75-61. The Eagles enter this game at 4-0 on the year while the Tigers are at 3-1.

Morehead State Looks To Stay Perfect

Morehead State has nine regular-season conference titles and four league tournament titles in their history, but they are coming off a couple of bad seasons. The Eagles are hoping to change that after going just 12-24 the last two years in OVC play, but it will not be easy as they have been picked for 7th in the league. Still, the Eagles are 4-0 on the year and the only team left in the OVC that is unbeaten but we also have to note that they have no played anyone yet. This will be their first game against a team from a Power Five conference. https://twitter.com/dhenson32/status/1195893008559947776 Returning is Jordan Walker who was 7th in the league in scoring last year putting up 15.8 ppg and he leads the team in scoring this year so far at 13.8 ppg. He scored 25 points in their opener against Samford but has scored just 10 points in each of his next three games. Morehead State will need more from him if they hope to take down the Tigers. The Eagles are off of a 76-53 home win over MD Eastern Shore and leading their attack was James Bake, who had 14 points. Djimon Henson was 2nd with 13. The Eagles shot 51.7% from the floor while holding the Hawks to just 37% shooting. The Eagles are 48th in the nation in scoring at 83.8 ppg and 51st in points allowed at 59.5 ppg. Their offense will be tested against the 17th ranked scoring defense in this one.
