After several games, the Murray State Racers Men's Basketball team is finding ways to win through good defense, despite struggling offensively. On Sounds Good, Tracy Ross speaks with "Voice of the Racers" Neal Bradley about the beginning of their season, catching up on the last several games. Bradley says they will need to find different ways to score and play with more offensive confidence.

 Murray State University football player Zeke Pike has been dismissed from the team after he was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs, possession of marijuana and resisting arrest.

 Some Murray State University men’s and women’s basketball players will receive a $3,400 stipend this school year to use as they wish.

The NCAA's power conferences passed legislation earlier this year allowing Division I schools to give their student athletes stipends to meet the full cost of attendance, which includes anything the student needs beyond tuition, housing and textbooks.
