2020 OVC Men's Basketball Tournament First Round

The Ohio Valley Conference (OVC) is one of the oldest conferences in college basketball with the conference starting in the 1940’s.  Murray State will look to repeat as OVC champions, but Ja Morant is playing for the Memphis Grizzlies right now.  

The first round of the OVC Basketball Championship presented by TicketSmarter will be played at the Ford Center in Evansville, Indiana.  The coolest part about the OVC men’s basketball tournament is that the bracket is set up in such a way that the regular season actually means something.  Only the top 8 of the 12 teams in the OVC qualify for the tournament.  

Also, the OVC is the originator of the double bye in conference tournaments.  The top two seeds receive a double bye into the semifinals.  Here is the first round schedule.  This tournament is always fun to watch because there have been teams in the past that have played a first-round game, but still won the tournament over teams with more rest.

#5 Tennessee State (TSU) vs #8 Morehead State – 6:30 PM EST

#6 Eastern Illinois (EIU) vs #7 Jacksonville State – 8:30 PM EST
