New Murray State Basketball Ranks

The Ohio Valley Conference Champion Murray State Racers moved up one spot to number 11 in this week’s AP poll, and back one to number 10 in the ESPN rankings. The Racers defeated Tennessee Tech and Tennessee State in the OVC tournament over the weekend to take the championship and secure an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. While sports analysts agree MSU would have received an at-large bid anyway, the win should help the Racers get a higher seed in the tournament. They now await selection Sunday to find out who and where they will play next.
