MOREHEAD, Ky. (FOX 56) — The Morehead State men’s basketball team remains undefeated since the calendar turned to 2022, beating Tennessee State 67-54 on Monday evening at Johnson Arena.

The Eagles are on a nine-game winning streak, dating back to December 15 when they lost at 21-ranked Xavier. Their overall record sits at 15-5 with a perfect 7-0 mark in the Ohio Valley Conference.

Earlier on Monday, Eagles big man Johni Broome was named OVC player of the week for the second time this season. The Florida-native averaged 18.5 points, 14.5 rebounds, and 4.5 blocks in last week’s wins against Belmont and SIUE.

First place in the conference, Morehead State looks to keep its strong play going on Thursday against Southeast Missouri State.
