Racers Begin Busy Two Weeks 
With a pair of Covid make up games coming the next two Mondays, the Murray State Racers get going on a stretch of eight games in 16m days to close January. The Racers (12-2) have won nine of their last 11 games as they host the Tennessee State Tigers (6-8) Thursday at 7 p.m. at the CFSB Center in Murray, Kentucky. The Racers are 2-0 after defeating SIUE on the road last Saturday 74-69 and the Tigers are 1-1 after beating Southeast Missouri State 95-84.

Racers vs Tigers Series
The Racers are 56-17 all-time against TSU and are 32-6 all-time at home. MSU has won the last six over TSU since the Tigers last win in Nashville in 2016. At home, the Racers have won the last six at the CFSB Center since TSU won in 2012.

Racers In The National Rankings
The Racers are doing a lot of things very well these days as they rank in the top-100 in NCAA D-I in 14 different stat categories. The first weapon the Racers employ is scoring 84.6 points per game to rank 11th in the nation. If the Racers reach their average, a team is going to have to have a big offensive game to top them. When the Racers do miss a shot, they have a good chance of grabbing the rebound and getting another possession. MSU is getting 12.7 offensive rebounds each game to rank 36th in the nation. The thing is, the Racers are not missing a lot as they rank 11th in the country with a field goal percentage of .498.

Racer Nation Witnessing Greatness
Racer Nation really should enjoy the second half of the season as they watch Tevin Brown and KJ Williams, The careers of Racer Greats should be savored and these two are certainly in that group. Brown is just the third MSU player to score 1,000 points, get 500 rebounds and have 350 assists, while Williams is the ninth Racer to score 1,000 career points and grab 700 rebounds. Brown enters the TSU game 11th in program history with 1,608 points and 190 points from overtaking No. 10 Garrett Beshear (1950-53) at 1,798 points. Brown is eight 3-point baskets from breaking the MSU all-time 3-pointer record held by Brown Isaiah Canaan (2009-13) who has the MSU record with 304 and Austin Peay’s Joe Sibbitt (1994-98) who has the OVC top mark with 319. Williams has 714 rebounds and is trying to crack the MSU top-10 if he can get past Quitman Sullins (1954-58) at 788. Williams is 11th in MSU history in field goal percentage at .572 as he will likely surpass 1,000 shot attempts before the 2021-22 season is finished.
