UT Martin was third in the conference in scoring per game and led the OVC in three-point shooting at 39 percent as a club. Though UTM did have a poor shooting performance against USC Upstate (28 percent), they held their opposition to 18 first half points.

The game will be held at 7 p.m. Eastern time and will be broadcast on CBS Sports Network. Semifinal games are March 31. The championship game is scheduled for April 2.
