Eagles and Gamecocks prepare for Valentine's Day tilt

MOREHEAD, Ky. -- The Morehead State men's basketball team returns to action on Thursday when it welcomes Ohio Valley Conference opponent Jacksonville State to Johnson Arena. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. ET.

The Eagles, who have dropped three straight, are 11-14 overall, 5-6 in league play and 8-4 at home. The Gamecocks, who have won three of their last four, are 15-8 overall, 7-5 in conference action and 5-5 on the road.

MSU owns a 16-8 advantage in the all-time series against JSU. The Eagles took two of three from the Gamecocks last year, but JSU responded with a victory in the first meeting between the two schools this season.

Adult tickets start at just $8 and will be available at the door. Parking next to the arena is just $5 per vehicle.

Morehead State students are admitted free with a valid student ID. With Thursday being Valentine's Day, MSU students will also have a chance to win gift cards to various businesses as part of the Date Night Giveaway.
