Jacksonville State claims first NCAA Tournament berth

(TSX / STATS) -- Senior guard Erik Durham scored 17 points and Jacksonville State qualified for the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history by defeating Tennessee-Martin 66-55 in the Ohio Valley Conference tournament championship game on Saturday night in Nashville, Tenn.

Senior guard Greg Tucker added 14 points -- all in the first half -- for the Gamecocks (20-14). The school from Jacksonville, Ala., is the first to gain a spot in this season's NCAA tourney.

"We're trying to build something at Jacksonville State," said first-year coach Ray Harper, who previously guided Western Kentucky to two NCAA Tournament bids. "You've got to walk before you can run, but we decided to run a little quicker than anyone thought."
