The Morehead State men's basketball Eagles (4-12, 0-3 Ohio Valley Conference) dropped a 77-60 decision to the Belmont Bruins (11-3, 2-1 OVC) on Thursday evening at the Curb Event Center

Morehead State drew double-figure performances from seniors Lamontray Harris and A.J. Hicks who scored 13 and 10 points. Tonight's performance was Harris' 13th in double figures this season, whereas it marks the 12th such night for Hicks. Sophomore guard De'Von Cooper joined the fray with 10 markers of his own, his fifth night with 10 or more.

Shooting ultimately proved to be the difference, as the Eagles finished the game 18-of-54 (.333) from the floor. Belmont finished with a 27-of-53 (.509) performance.

The hosting Bruins were paced by freshman Caleb Hollander, who led Belmont with 22 points and six rebounds.

The Eagles wrap up their four-game road trip on Saturday at Tennessee State in the Gentry Center. Tip off is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. ET.
