Tonight we get to watch one of the marquee games on the schedule as the Belmont Bruins come in to town. Belmont opens as a 4 point favorite.
As much as I want to win this game, I would rather lose tonight and win in March. Belmont has proven they will be tough to beat once, beating them twice seems nearly impossible.
With the white out and an expected large and loud crowd on ESPNU this has all the makings of a Murray State win but if that is going to happen the Racers will have to shut down the Bruins three point shooting, which no one has been able to do as of yet.
