The Buc’s handled business today on the road at Morehead State as they cruised to a 78-68 win. Many Buc fans, including myself, were worried they might overlook this game in anticipation for the vaunted matchup with Tennessee at Freedom Hall 5 days from now. However, they showed no signs of that as they got out to a 35-12 lead 10 minutes into the first half. The game was never really in doubt, although the Buc’s had two lapses during the game and allowed Morehead to get within 9 and 8 pts in the second half. Despite the Eagles record and the assault allegations against their now former coach, year in and year out Morehead is a consistently good mid-major program so I’ll definitely look at this game as a good win on the road.
TJ Cromer busted out of his recent shooting slump going for 23 pts, 7 assists on 6-9 shooting from 3 point land. He did have 6 turnovers which is uncharacteristic of him. Desonta Bradford and Hanner Mosquera-Perea finished with 13 pts a piece and David Burrell added 7 pts off the bench.
