Racers ready for Morehead State


WPSD Sports

Saturday night, the top two preseason teams in the Ohio Valley Conference will meet to see who gets the early advantage in the OVC race. Murray State will travel to Morehead State in a matchup of two teams pretty much everyone expects to be there at the end.

The Racers lost just one conference game last season and it was at Morehead State. The Eagles are led by their All-OVC big man Kenneth Faried. Faried is averaging better than 18 points and 14 rebounds a game this year. Billy Kennedy knows his big guys will have to play well if the Racers are going to have a shot to win Saturday night.

Tip-off is set for 7:00pm Saturday. As always, WPSD Local 6 Sports is with the Racers and we'll have highlights and postgame reaction Saturday night at 10:00pm.
