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.

I’m traveling to Nashville to cover the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament today, so there will be more photos coming soon.
Monday’s women’s basketball game against UT Martin was one of the more exciting games this semester in terms of photography. I can usually come away from a game with a few good reaction photos, but yesterday seemed like a gold mine. It’s always exciting covering a game that keeps you on your toes, and I think I came out of the game with some decent photos. After looking at the photos, it also looked like some lights were replaced in Lantz Arena because the lighting was better than usual. For the full story check out Alex McNamee’s story in the Daily Eastern News here.
