Murray State wins OVC championship

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) Jonathan Stark deserved to take a victory lap.

Murray State's star senior paraded around the Ford Center while waving his school's flag after a 68-51 victory over Belmont on Saturday night in the Ohio Valley Conference championship game that earned the Racers a spot in the NCAA Tournament.

The league's player of the year pumped in a game-high 24 points and collected tournament MVP honors after he averaged 27 points the last two days.
