The Blue Raiders won tonight against the Miners in an exciting fashion. They trailed for the entire first half against UTEP. The score going into the locker room was 25-20 in favor of UTEP. Middle Tennessee looked very over matched on paper, however they never played like it. They played with the heart of a champion.

The key to this game was how much production Middle Tennessee was able to get from there bench. The Blue Raiders had 28 Bench Points compared to just 7 for the Miners. Another key stat was 3 pointers. MT shot 36.4% for the compared to just 29.4% for UTEP.

Omega Harris had a chance to tie the game at the end with a desperation 3 pointer, but he missed it. The ending was highly controversial because Harris was fouled at the game, but the officials let them play when it mattered the most. SUNP0021

The Blue Raiders are going to have a chance to get back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time sine 2013. No matter if they play either LA Tech or UAB tomorrow, I expect Middle Tennessee to “Bring The Wood” tomorrow as they are playing for all the marbles at 2:30 tomorrow.
