Racers are well aware of Belmont's ability to win from behind
MURRAY, KY-- After a quick pep-talk from Coach Steve Prohm, Murray State went to work on Monday, focusing on themselves before they turn their attention to Belmont starting tomorrow.
The Bruins are one of those teams that just won't go away, no matter how far they're down. That showed last week when Belmont got a come from behind win against Morehead State, and almost pulled off the same thing at Tennessee Tech.
Prohm learned during both of the Racers games against Belmont last year, that they just won't quit.
"You have to finish games, you have to beat Belmont, they're not going to beat themselves," said Prohm. "They're really good when they're playing from behind in the last three minutes of the game, and that Morehead game the other night brought back a lot of bad memories."
After Belmont beat Murray State in the OVC Tournament last year, Prohm sent Bruins Coach Rick Byrd an e-mail congratulating him on the win. And it didn't take long for Byrd to respond.
"He sent me an e-mail back saying he looked forward to being in that same moment again for many years," Prohm said. "You know, it could shape up down the road to be a great rivalry, but it's so new right now, it's just trying to win the next game."
