Southeast Missouri State was able to win their first game in the OVC Tournament against Lindenwood and they dominated the second half. The Redhawks scored 45 points in the second half and were able to cruise to the victory. Both of these teams in this matchup were tied for 3rd in the OVC standings and we should be in for a great game here. These two teams split the season series and they have pretty similar metrics on the year. Tennessee State is the slightly better shooting team and they are averaging more rebounds per game, so I like them to get the win here.
