SEMO women could clinch three-peat tonightPosted Saturday, February 23, 2008, at 10:17 AM
Not to get ahead of things, but there is a decent chance the SEMO women's basketball team will be able to clinch a three-peat by a little after 9 p.m. tonight.
The Redhawks lead Samford by one game as they chase their third straight OVC regular-season title. Both squads have three games remaining.
That includes Samford visiting a tough Murray State team this afternoon, so you've got to think the chances of the Bulldogs suffering a loss are at least 50-50.
If that happens, the Redhawks will take the court tonight at home against Eastern Kentucky needing only a win to clinch at least a share of another championship.
Even if that entire scenario doesn't play out, the Redhawks -- with all three of their remaining games at home, including one against Samford -- are in a great shape to nail down the three-peat at some point.
Hope to see everybody at the Show Me Center for tonight's 7:30 p.m. tipoff.
A quick OVC men's basketball note:
Austin Peay's Drake Reed, the league's reigning player of the year, has been suspended for Thursday's game at Eastern Kentucky for receiving two technical fouls in the Govs' most recent contest.
That could hamper the Govs' chances of winning the outright OVC title, although they have already clinched at least a share of their second straight crown.
Austin Peay, two games ahead of Murray State, finishes at Eastern Kentucky and Morehead State, while Murray State closes at Tennessee Tech and at home against Tennessee-Martin.
By the way, that Murray at Tech game will have a big impact on SEMO's chances of slipping into the OVC tournament. I'll expand more on the situation in Monday's newspaper column.
