Morehead St seeks another NCAA upset after 10-year absence

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Preston Spradlin didn’t fret when Morehead State stumbled out of the gate, and he’s making sure the Eagles aren’t comfortable despite their red-hot roll. After all, there’s so much to achieve in their long-awaited return to the NCAA Tournament, as Kentucky’s lone representative yet. This week marks 10 years since Morehead State’s first-round upset of No. 4 seed Louisville in its last NCAA appearance. A chance to repeat history looms when the No. 13 seed Eagles face No. 4 West Virginia at Lucas Oil Stadium. The Eagles enter the tournament on a 19-1 roll including winning the OVC championship.
