Murray State not worried about four losses
MURRAY, KY - Halfway through the season Murray State isn't where most fans would like them to be.
"Everyone expects us to be 16-0 every season," Head Coach Steve Prohm said. "That's not the case every year."
With four losses already this season there is no panic for the Racers.
"Were not worried about our record," Senior Forward Latreze Mushatt said. "It is what it is. We had high expectations from last year and were not worried about that."
"Any regular program that has lost four games is still doing great," Senior Brandon Garrett said. "We just set our standards so high its not a good feeling to have losses now. But we will be ok."
If you ask the players they haven't been thinking about last years team that finished the year (31-2), and won 23 in a row. Its now time to move on.
"The chemistry from last year was because those guys had played together since they were freshman," Junior Guard Dexter Fields said. "They knew where everyone was going to be at all times and knew how to play together. I think this years team is starting to figure that out."
Despite one loss already in OVC play the Racers are still first in the Western Division and like where they stand.
"If we only had a little more to improve on then I would be worried," Prohm said. " But we have a long way to go. We have a lot more to improve on and I think we have yet to see just how good this years team can be."
