Racers confidence rising recently

MURRAY, KY-- In the four games leading up to Murray State's matchup with Belmont, the Racers were struggling at points to make shots, shooting just 19 percent from three-point range. But since that game with the Bruins, something clicked. The Racers are back to shooting 45 percent from beyond the arch, and their confidence is sky-high.

"Our confidence is rising by the game," said senior forward Ed Daniel. "We're shooting better as a team, and we're playing defense better as a team, so hopefully we can keep this going."

"We're going to be fine," added senior guard Stacy Wilson. "I think everybody's confidence is at a level it should be, like we were playing at the beginning of the season. I think everybody's back to that level."

But the Racers still need Belmont to lose in order to win their fourth straight regular season OVC title. So are they watching and waiting for Belmont to slip up?

"Not really, we're worried about ourselves right now," Wilson said. "Just trying to get better as a team, and we still have some things to work on as a unit to get better."

"It's human nature to scoreboard watch," admitted Murray State head coach Steve Prohm. "But you know, we just have to take care of our business for any of that to matter."
