Racers to Host Old Dominion
I know fans really wanted to see VCU come into The Bank this season but with that not working out, it is nice to add another recognizable opponent. The Monarchs are coming off a 22-14 season with a quarterfinal loss in the CIT and also gave the eventual National Champion Kentucky Wildcats a tough game early in the season at the Mohegan Sun.
This should be another game that sees The CFSB Center packed and loud for the full 40 minutes.. ODU is returning all but three players. Problem is those three players were their top scorers and rebound leaders.
This completes Murray State's schedule and for those of you worrying about SOS. Please don't Murray State has one of the most challenging schedules in the OVC, maybe even thee toughest depending on how the Charleston Classic plays out. Besides we didn't worry about strength of schedule when putting together last seasons opponents and I wouldn't mind repeating that.
