The Skyhawks (3-10, 0-1 Ohio Valley Conference) are coming off a valiant effort in their OVC opener at Southeast Missouri last Saturday. In that game, UT Martin led by 15 points in the first half before Southeast Missouri clawed back and escaped with a 65-60 win. Jeremy Washington (14 points, 10 rebounds) and Myles Taylor (14 points) each cracked double-figures in the scoring column while junior Mike Liabo became UT Martin’s 16th member of the 1,000 point club in the contest.
