Murray State wins the Ohio Valley Tournament, headed to the 2012 NCAA tournament

Murray State coach Steve Prohm cuts down the net.
Boy was it one wild ending in Nashville or what? With bubble teams across the country praying that the favorite, the Murray State Racers, finds vengeance in the Ohio Valley Tournament Championship against the Tennessee State Tigers, who gave them their one and only loss on February 9th, it was the Racers who finally won a wild back and forth game by a 54-52 score. Racers guard Jewaun Long scored the winning bucket and Tigers forward Robert Covington was not able to make a game-winning three at the horn. Covington and star Racers point guard Isaiah Canaan were the leading scorers with 14 apiece.

The Racers will find out where they are headed in eight days on Selection Sunday. This is their first tournament appearance since 2010.
