Total Team Effort Comes Up Inches Short for Men's Basketball at Ohio
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.
