MOREHEAD, Ky. — Morehead State opened the season at home by taking on Samford, who is led by former UK forward, Scott Padgett. The two teams went to overtime before the Eagles pulled it out 90-86. The two teams went to a single overtime last season and the Bulldogs won that game.

In this opener, MSU was led by Jordan Walker's game-high 25 points, including two free throws with 0.5 seconds left to send the game to overtime. In the second overtime, Walker went into traffic and hit the game-tying layup with 28 seconds left. Samford missed a potential game winner with five seconds left to send it the second overtime.

The Eagles are back on the homecourt Thursday night at 6:00 to host Spalding. That game can be seen on ESPN+.
