Racers looking to end shooting slump

MURRAY, KY - Murray State has been in a slump when it comes to shooting three pointers. In their last two games against Tennessee Tech and Jacksonville State they were just 5 of 36 (13%).

"We're getting open shots," Head Coach Steve Prohm said. "They just aren't falling at this point. Its just a matter of time. And when they do we should be great."

Isaiah Canaan is normally the most reliable shooter for the Racers, but he has struggled as well. Canaan is currently shooting 39 percent from behind the arc, which is the worst percentage of his career.

"The shots that I hit last year aren't falling as easily this year," Canaan said. "Its harder this year with every team putting two guys on me and face guarding."

"We don't plan on changing the way we approach the game or our shot selection. Those shots will eventually fall and when they do we will be the team everyone expects us to be," Canaan said.
