MURFREESBORO, Tenn (WMOT) -- A heartbreaking defeat Tuesday afternoon for Lady Raider’s basketball. The MT women suffered a cliff-hanger, single-point loss to the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
The 71-70 defeat ended the team's winning streak at 20 games and dashed their hopes for a seventh Sun Belt Tournament title. The men’s team was knocked out of the tournament in the first round.
While post season play hasn’t panned out well for Blue Raiders basketball, at least so far, MTSU spokesman Mark Owens said fans couldn’t have asked for a better year.
