Of the 351 teams in the country that play Division-1 basketball, the Murray State Racers are the first team to clinch a postseason bid.
But if you ask the Racers if they're satisfied, the resounding answer is no.
“Since my four years in college, I haven't won anything,” Murray State senior guard T.J. Sapp said. “We've still got a lot more to go. We're not just satisfied with winning an OVC Championship. We want to get into the tournament and make a big run.”
“Just because you win a championship, that doesn't mean anything,” Murray State senior forward Jonathan Fairell said. “We've still got a lot more work to do, still got a lot more people to prove wrong because people are still doubting us.”
With the Racers 21-game winning streak, Murray State can surpass the program-record 23-game winning streak set back in 2012 -- if they win their remaining three regular season games.
It will also give Murray State an undefeated regular season in the Ohio Valley Conference, a feat that hasn't been done since Austin Peay in 2004.
“I definitely think we can get it,” Murray State junior forward Tyler Rambo said. “I redshirted that 31-2 season (2011-12), so I'm very close to those guys. So I guess it would be kind of cool to send them a little group text message.
“They're still involved in the program. They want to see us break it because nobody thought it could really happen again.”
