Robert Covington scored 21 points and grabbed eight rebounds to lead No. 4 Tennessee State past the No. 5 Morehead State Eagles, 88-75. Jordan Cyphers added 23 points for the Tigers, while Patrick Miller chipped in 15 points and 10 assists. Tennessee State will face the top-seeded Belmont Bruins on Friday at 6 p.m. ET on ESPNU.

No. 3 Eastern Kentucky cruised to an 84-69 victory over the Southeast Missouri State Redhawks, and will take on the No. 2 Murray State Racers after the completion of the Tennessee State-Belmont contest, also on ESPNU. Thanks to the OVC's two-division format, Eastern Kentucky was seeded lower than Murray State despite having a better record in conference play. The Colonels have a shot to prove they're the better team with a berth in the OVC Championship Game on the line.
