MARTIN, Tenn. – The University of Tennessee at Martin women’s basketball team put the exclamation mark on its 2012 Ohio Valley Conference regular season championship Saturday afternoon at Jacksonville State with an 87-62 victory.

Sophomore Jaclissa Haislip recorded her second consecutive double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds and Heather Butler scored 29 points.

“Defensively we played really well,” UT Martin head coach Kevin McMillan said.

The Skyhawks, now 21-8 overall and 15-1 in the OVC, will return to action Friday, March 2, in the semifinals of the conference tournament at Municipal Auditorium in Nashville. Tipoff is set for noon. The Skyhawks could play one of three teams, Morehead State, Austin Peay or Murray State.
