MURRAY, KY - The Murray State Racer's were back on the floor at the CFSB Center Thursday hoping to bounce back after falling to Eastern Kentucky 77-65.

Not only was it their first loss in conference play it was the worst loss since Steve Prohm took over the program. In the game the Racers were down by as many as 20, but were able to cut it down to just a 5 point deficit.

Before practice began Prohm told his team that they were "going to be ok."

"I have all the faith in the world in this team." Prohm said. "I think that I need to make some changes during the games. The decisions that I made last year aren't the right ones to make this year."

On Saturday the Racer's will be back on the road taking on Austin Peay, but that wasn't Thursday's focus.

"Today I wanted us to work on ourselves," Prohm said. "We want to take care of what we need to take care of."

"I haven't watched film on Austin Peay yet but that's what I'm doing tonight and tomorrow we will come out and prepare for a tough game on Saturday."
