Recap: Morehead State vs. Tenn Tech

Morehead, KY (Sports Network) - Angelo Warner put in a layup with nine seconds left to lift the Morehead State Eagles to a 65-63 decision over the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles in an Ohio Valley Conference thriller at Ellis Johnson Arena.

Warner finished with 12 points, four assists and three steals for Morehead State (13-14, 7-6 OVC) as it notched its second win in a row. Chad Posthumus led the hosts with 13 points and was just one rebound shy of a double-double.

Jeremia Samarrippas and Jud Dillard scored 14 points apiece for TTU (9-16, 3-10) as it endured its second straight setback. Dillard also grabbed 11 boards and committed six of the Golden Eagles' 19 turnovers.

Morehead State shot 42.9 percent from the field in the opening half to take a 29-26 lead into halftime. Although the Golden Eagles made only five of their 17 field goal tries in the opening 20 minutes, they made up for it by converting 16-of-21 at the free-throw line to head into the break trailing by only three points.

The contest remained close for the majority of the second stanza as neither side could gain much of an advantage. Samarrippas knocked down jump shots on back-to-back possessions to give TTU a 63-61 lead with 1:17 left in regulation but Morehead State responded as Posthumus tied the score with a tip-in. Dillard missed a go-ahead 3-point attempt before Warner's late game heroics. TTU had one last shot, but Samarrippas was unable to connect on his attempt from beyond the arc just before the buzzer.

Morehead State held a narrow, 31-30 edge in the rebounding battle and outscored TTU, 40-20, in the paint to secure the win. These schools will close out their respective regular seasons against one another on March 2, in Cookeville.
