On this day in 2011, some tough news hit the Murray State basketball program. Their former coach, Billy Kennedy, who had left Murray State five months earlier to take over the Texas A&M program, announced he was stepping away from the Aggies' program to deal with an undisclosed medical condition."
Each day during this basketball season, we will take you back to how we covered the Racers during their memorable 2011-12 season where they finished the year with a record of 31-2 overall.
This all leads to our ten-part documentary, "Stay on Your Wall: The Story of the Greatest Season in Murray State Basketball History." Each of the ten episodes will air on Saturday night at 6:30pm, with the first episode airing on January 8th, 2022.
