Southeast Missouri State vs. Murray State: Live stream info, playing time, how to watch, odds, picks, for the OVC tournament

The team that will top many Cinderella lists in the 2022 NCAA Tournament makes its playoff debut as the No. 22 Murray State Racers take on the Southeast Missouri State Redhawks on Friday in the semifinals of the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament in Evansville, Indiana.

SMS (14-17, 8-9 OVC) eliminated Tennessee State to advance to the last four of the league tournament. In their last four games, the Redhawks have won three and lost to Murray State 70-68 in the regular season finale at home. One of the quietest teams in America, they average over 72 possessions per outing, good for 13th in Division I.

Murray State (28-2, 18-0 OVC) will be the favorite team of any American college that’s on the bubble because if they don’t win their next two games, they’re stealing a global offer from the NCAA. The Racers are No. 26 at KenPom, have only lost to No. 5 Auburn and East Tennessee State this season, and can defend with anyone in the country.
