Kenneth Faried had 14 points and 21 rebounds Tuesday night as Morehead State earned its first NCAA tournament victory in a quarter-century, opening with a 58-43 win over Alabama State.
The Eagles (20-15) never trailed and advanced to play top-seeded
Louisville on Friday. Last November, Louisville routed Morehead
State by 38 points.
Alabama State finished at 22-10. Its star player, 7-foot-1
Grlenntys Chief Kickingstallionsims Jr., blocked three shots but
did little on the boards.
Morehead State hadn't made the tournament since 1984. The Eagles
beat North Carolina A&T in an opening game that year.
