Morehead State Basketball | One win away from the CBI Championship

03/30/2016 11:30 AM

Morehead State is in uncharted territory. Before Monday, the Eagles had never before won a game in the Finals of a Post Season Tournament. But after defeating Nevada 86-83, the Eagles are just one victory away from winning the CBI championship.

The CBI is an unusual tournament in that the finals are in a best of three format. If Wednesday’s game 2 is anything like the first contest, strap in. Morehead State’s Lyonell Gaines had career highs in points (27) and rebounds (14) but it wasa back and forth game with multiple ties and lead changes.
