Prohm and Canaan Coming Back to MSU

Both Murray State Head Basketball Coach Steve Prohm and point guard Isaiah Canaan say they’ll be back at MSU next season with the goal of taking the Racers to even greater heights after this season’s top 10 ranking and NCAA tournament berth.  Prohm will likely be a top commodity in coaching searches this offseason after leading Murray State to a 31-2 record that included an NCAA tournament victory in his first season. For now, he says he wants to stay in Murray. Canaan says he’ll assess his future in the coming weeks after averaging a team-high 19 points per game.

The Murray State Men's Basketball team is creeping back up in the national rankings following two wins last week. The Racers moved up two spots in the AP poll to number 14, and two in the ESPN poll to number 12 after successfully navigating past Southeast Missouri State and then number 16 ranked St. Mary's.

The Murray State men's basketball team's amazing winning streak has come to an end. The number nine ranked Racers fell last night at home to Tennessee State 72-68. Coach Steve Prohm's 23 straight wins to start the season were the most by any first year head coach since Bill Hodges' 1978-79 squad won their first 33. But, now at 23-1, Prohm says he's ready to move on.
