Everyone who witnessed Tennessee Tech guard Kevin Murphy hit a game-winning 3-pointer to eliminate the Govs from the OVC tournament quarterfinals in the Dunn Center last season can not wait for the Govs to play in the OVC tournament this year.

Part of the bitter taste from last year has already been washed away since the Govs earned a first round bye for being the third seed. However, the taste will not be completely eliminated until the Govs make it to the finals and win. Although the Govs do not yet know who they will be facing in the quarterfinals, they do know the road to the finals runs through Morehead.

The two teams split the series this season, 1-1, with both teams winning on their home courts. If the Govs make it to the semifinals, they welcome a chance to break the tie. TAS
