Racers turn attention to tough schedule ahead

The upcoming week for the Murray State Racers could be the most important week during season.

The Racers, just like every team in the country, is currently going through final exams. Because of that, most of their time will be split between the classroom and on the court for practice.

“We have got to find the right balance of handling our business in the classroom and finishing the semester strong,” head coach Matt McMahon said. “But also continue to make the improvements that we need to make.”

McMahon see’s their non-conference schedule as broken up into two halves. The first being the first six games of the season, and then the last five non-conference games before OVC play begins.

And that is where the Racers are at this point.

Road games at Illinois State and Saint Louis, not to mention the biggest home game in recent memory with Auburn, are ahead for Murray State.

“That is why you come to Murray State to play games like Illinois State, Saint louis and Auburn.” McMahon said. “Detroit is very talented so, we will find a lot more about our team in these next five games.”

Which is why the next week of practice is incredibly important for the Racers who are off to their best start since the 2012-13 season.
