Morehead State Plays Alabama State In NCAA Tournament

MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) - Morehead State's first NCAA tournament
appearance in 25 years could have them facing a familiar foe.
The Eagles (19-15) will play Alabama State in the play-in game
on Tuesday night, with the winner getting the opportunity to play
top-seeded Louisville on Friday. The Cardinals beat the Eagles
79-41 at Freedom Hall on Nov. 22.
Morehead State advanced to the tournament following a stirring
run through the Ohio Valley Conference tournament that culminated
in a 67-65 double-overtime win over Austin Peay in the championship
The NCAA berth is the final step in a three-year turnaround for
the program under coach Donnie Tyndall, a former Morehead player
who inherited a 4-23 program from former coach Kyle Macy.
