Morehead State men's basketball picked up a gut-check victory in the first game out in the 2019-20 season as the Eagles outlasted visiting Samford 90-86 in double overtime at Johnson Arena Tuesday.

The Eagles, who have now won four of the last five season openers, played the Bulldogs (former OVC foes) to an overtime battle for the second straight season.

Senior guard Jordan Walker scored a game-high 25 points, including two free throws with 0.5 seconds left to send the game to overtime.

The Eagles now host Spalding (Ky.) on Thursday at 6 p.m. ET.
