The Road Ends for Eastern Basketball

The Eastern men’s basketball team faced off against Southeast Missouri on March 6, in the Nashville Municipal Auditorium, but wasn’t able to move forward in the OVC tournament. SEMO defeated the men’s basketball team 78-68.

The women’s team played on Friday, March 8, and fell against UT Martin 71-69 in the semifinal round. It was one of the most exciting games I covered during my four years at Eastern, and it was also the last Eastern basketball games I’ll cover for The Daily Eastern News or the Warbler. UT Martin ended up winning the OVC Championship and is moving into the NCAA Tournament.

For the full women’s basketball story check out Alex McNamee’s story in The Daily Eastern News. With the basketball season over, baseball and softball are right around the corner, and it will be nice to finally get back outside to cover games.
