Kennedy still wants more maturity from the Racers


WPSD Sports

Entering the biggest week of their season, Murray State coach Billy Kennedy is still banging the same drum: he wants his team to grow up.

At his weekly news conference Kennedy was talking about the pros and cons of having such a deep bench.  On one hand, he said it's great to be able to overcome poor play or injuries and just be able to plug in another piece.  But on the flip side, Kennedy says playing so many guys this year has created chemistry problems.  He says it's been tough to keep guys happy with enough playing time.  Kennedy said last year he had a mature team where if guys like Danero Thomas or Tony Easley didn't play, they didn't care.  That hasn't been the case this year.

Kennedy said this year has been a work in progress and that's his team is playing pretty well right now.  He just wants them to grow up a little bit faster as the season is starting to wind down.

The Racers return to action Thursday night at Tennessee State at 8pm.
