The Murray State men’s basketball team remains at number 9 on the latest Associated Press poll following their wins over Southeast Missouri State University and UT Martin last week. This puts the Racers just ahead of powerhouses Michigan State and Duke. Murray State is still undefeated with 23 wins this season. They face off against Tennessee State at home Thursday at 7:00. Tickets still remain available for that game, but MSU's remaining Saturday Home games are sell outs, which include a match against Austin Peay and the Bracketbuster game against 16th-ranked St. Mary's.
