Morehead State seniors Jordan Walker and Djimon Henson combined for 46 points as the Eagle men's basketball team came up just short at Ohio Saturday, falling 82-76.

The Eagles fell behind by 12 in the first half but never fully faltered, mounting a furious rally to lead at the half. MSU slipped to 5-7 overall, while the Bobcats moved to 8-4.

Walker, who drilled six three-pointers, became just the second player in program history with at least 1,200 points, 200 assists, 100 steals and 175 triples. He has 176 three-balls now in his four seasons.

Henson, who had a career-high 23 points against Marshall last time out, nearly equaled that today, hitting all three three-pointers and 8-of-11 from the floor to score 22 today.

Morehead State, which had only hit 28 percent from three-point range in the last four games, nailed 50 percent (9-of-18) today.

Morehead State is idle for the Holiday break until Dec 28 when Alice Lloyd (Ky.) visits for a Noon ET matchup at Johnson Arena.
