Dates: March 2-5
Bracket: The Ohio Valley Conference
Sites: The entire four-day tournament will be played at Municipal Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn.
Television: Semifinals on ESPNU, Championship on ESPN2.
Tourney Fact: The top two seeds receive a double-bye into the semifinals. Teams seeded third and fourth receive a bye into the quarterfinals.
Favorites: Murray St. (23-7, 14-4) and Morehead St. (22-9, 13-5) are undoubtedly the favorites to reach the championship game. The Racers and Eagles split the regular season series, but Murray St. won the most recent contest 70-62 on Feb. 24. Morehead St. features Kenneth Faried, one of the best rebounders in the country.
Best of the Rest: Austin Peay (19-12, 13-5) beat both Murray St. and Morehead St. during the regular season and figures to be a factor in the tournament. The Governors will need great play from TyShwan Edmondson to have a shot at the conference championship.
Sleeper: Tennessee Tech (18-11, 12-6) has been on a roll, winning their last five. Don’t be surprised if Kevin Murphy and the Golden Eagles pull off an upset and reach the finals.
