The UT Martin Men’s Basketball team suffered a tough loss last night. The Skyhawks fell on the road to in-state rival Tennessee Tech 78-65. The loss moves UT Martin to 2 games outside of the OVC Tournament field with just 3 games left to play.
UT-Martin shot 46% from the floor but trailed for over 37 minutes and could never get over the hump. Miles Thomas led the team with 19 points, 7 assists, and 3 rebounds on the night, while Quintin Dove added 17 points and 12 rebounds, with Derek Hawthorne scoring 13 points and 6 rebounds.
The team returns to action on Saturday as they travel to Jacksonville State for their final road game of the season.
