MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- One of the continuing questions about free speech asks, “Are lies a protected form of communication?” Within some narrow circumstances involving advertising and defamation, false statements are, in fact, protected.

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.

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.
