Redhawks suffer 7-0 OVC loss

Wednesday, March 29, 2006

Defending Ohio Valley Conference champion Tennessee-Martin pinned a 7-0 defeat on visiting Southeast Missouri State on Tuesday afternoon.

The loss dropped the Redhawks to 8-8 overall and 1-3 in the OVC.

"We've played the cream of the OVC the first week and a half," Southeast coach Jay Pacelli said. "We're still real optimistic we'll get into the conference tournament. We're looking to take a couple of victories this weekend."

Southeast travels to Morehead State on Saturday and Eastern Kentucky on Sunday.
