Morehead State men's basketball (7-11, 3-2 Ohio Valley Conference) picked up an 87-85 win over Tennessee State (12-6, 3-2 OVC) in a down-to-the-wire thriller on Saturday night.

Tied at 85 with the game's final 10 seconds ticking away, DeJuan Marrero received the ball on the high post and began backing his man down to the basket. The Tennessee State defense collapsed, allowing Marrero to find senior forward Treshaad Williams with a window of open space underneath the basket.

Morehead State men's basketball (6-11, 2-2 Ohio Valley Conference) dropped an 84-78 decision to Belmont (10-4, 4-0 OVC) Thursday night, despite an electric atmosphere in the season's first nationally televised game at Johnson Arena.
