The Murray State Racers beat Eastern Kentucky in the semifinals of the OVC tournament. But they lost a heart-breaker in the final to Belmont. The Racers now wait to see what their post season fate will be. It seems unlikely that they will receive an at large bid to the NCAA tournament. But an NIT bid is not out of the question. And then there are CBI and CIT tournaments.
Against Belmont, the Racers led by as many as 10 points. And with 3:10 to play in regulation they led by seven. But Belmont rallied to tie the game 62-62 and send it into overtime.
Stacy Wilson led Murray State with 23 points. All American point guard Isaiah Canaan had 22 points and 10 assists.
JJ Mann led four Belmont players in double figures with 18 points.
