Racer basketball alumni return to Murray State


WPSD Sports

It's a special weekend at Murray State as the Racers not only host arch-rival Austin Peay, but they're also welcoming back some familiar faces.
A few dozen former Murray State players, coaches and support staff had a special dinner Friday night at the CFSB Center.  It's not often you get so many people from so many different generations of Racer basketball in the same room at the same time.  Murray State Hall-of-Famer Herb McPherson was one of the former players in attendance, and he couldn't have been more excited to be back.
"Murray State is one of the top 30 basketball programs in the nation," McPherson said. "Just to be able to come back and see the old teammates you don't see very often -- it's such a thrill for me."
Murray State will host Austin Peay at Noon on Saturday.
