The Racers will host St. Mary’s on Saturday, February 18 at 6:00 ET on either ESPN or ESPN 2. The 20-2 Gaels are ranked 16th in the AP Poll and 18th in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll.
Murray State is 2-0 in televised BracketBuster games.
This game is very big in terms of seeding for the NCAA tournament — as the name of the event suggests. Win this one and it’ll be tough for the selection committee to undervalue Murray State, assuming they run the table in the OVC.
