Demonte Harper and Kenneth Faried boost Morehead State to OVC tournament title
• Morehead State's Kenneth Faried notched his 84th career double-double with 24 points and 15 rebounds, tying Ralph Sampson for the second-most all-time. Tim Duncan is the Division I leader with 87.
• It's also Faried's 27th double-double of the season -- the most in the country and more than the next four players in the OVC combined.
• Morehead State won its fourth Ohio Valley title and the second in the past three seasons.
• Morehead State got double-doubles from both Faried and Demonte Harper (27 points, 11 rebounds), which was enough to overcome 30 points from Tennessee Tech's Kevin Murphy, one shy of his career high.
• Tennessee Tech is still looking for its first tournament appearance since 1963.
