UT Martin clinches OVC West title with win over Murray St.

MARTIN, Tenn. (AP) Jacolby Mobley hit five 3-pointers and scored 33 points and Tennessee-Martin nearly blew a 24-point halftime lead but hung on to beat Murray State 83-76 on Saturday night.

The game was the regular season finally for both teams. The win clinches the Ohio Valley West Division crown for the Skyhawks (20-11, 10-6), who will be the No. 2 seed in the conference tourney and have a double-bye into the semis.

UT Martin led 50-26 at halftime and 68-48 with 10:17 left. But a Jonathan Stark 3 for the Racers sparked a 26-7 stretch over the next eight-plus minutes and allowed Murray State to pull to 75-74 with 1:57 left.
