Later tonight, at 7:30, the Racer basketball team will take the court against the 2nd best team in the west division of the OVC. With a win over SIU-Edwardsville, Murray State could put themselves 3 games ahead in the division and in the drivers seat for a double bye in the conference tournament.
As always let us take a look at some of the monumental losses and wins this opponent has had this season:
They beat a team called the "Leathernecks" by 12 but then a few weeks later lost to them by 15.
November 20th was a magical night for Jeff Bidwell, the nations biggest SIU fan, as he got to watch the Saluki's thump SIU-E by 16.
|The least intimidating student section you'll ever see at the D-1 level|
The Cougars biggest win this season was a 6 point loss to EKU in Richmond, Kentucky. SIU-E kept the game close and within striking distance by having 4 players in double-figures. Unfortunately for them, Mike DiNunno had a double-double with 17 points and 10 "F--- You's."
SIU-E is coming off back to back wins over D-1 opponents for the first time this season. One more and that's called a winning streak. With the game being in the CFSB Center and the Cougars opponent being Murray State, I see a loss on SIU-E's horizon.
Final Score: Murray State 77 SIU-E 60
