It’s been Belmont and Murray State all season in the Ohio Valley Conference and the winner of tonight’s matchup in the conference championship will punch the first ticket to the 2018 NCAA Tournament.
Belmont is about 20 spots lower than Murray State in the KenPom rankings but it proved itself in the regular season when it lost by four at Washington and beat both Middle Tennessee State and Western Kentucky, who will likely duke it out in the Conference USA Tournament shortly.
Belmont won the only matchup between these two teams in the regular season. Its three losses in the conference came against Tennessee State and Jacksonville State (x2).
As always, the Bruins can shoot it. Dylan Windler and Amanze Egekeze average 17.6 and 16.6 respectively and both shoot over 42 percent from three. The team shoots about 30 threes a game and makes 38 percent of them.
Murray State Racers
Murray State lost to Middle Tennessee in the non-conference but did take Auburn down to the wire in what ended up being a four-point loss.
It was a game better in the conference regular season, despite losing the head-to-head matchup, because it only lost to Jacksonville State once and took care of all the rest. That doesn’t matter now. This game is on a neutral floor.
That head-to-head matchup was back and forth for the first three-quarters of the game before Belmont went on a little run and then held off a final Murray State blitz.
Jonathan Stark is the most prolific scorer on the floor. He is averaging nearly 22 a game this season on better than 42 percent from three. The senior from Munford, Tennessee will turn 23 in May because he sat out a season after transferring from Tulane after his sophomore season.
