Redhawks basketball advances to OVC quarterfinals; baseball team wins big

The Southeast Missouri State University men’s basketball team has been missing from the Ohio Valley Conference Championship Tournament since 2007.

They returned with a bang.

Wednesday night in Nashville, the seventh-seeded Redhawks dominated six seed Eastern Kentucky 65-49 to advance to the quarterfinal round. Marland Smith scored 20 points and collected 11 rebounds for the Redhawks. The Colonels were held 28% shooting from the field.


The Redhawks baseball team finished a two-game sweep of Central Arkansas Wednesday afternoon. Brett Russell hit two doubles and belted a home run as Southeast won 10-3. The Redhawks improved to 7-2 with the win.
