The Murray State Racers and the Southeast Missouri State Redhawks meet in college basketball action from Show Me Center on Saturday. 

Murray State enters this game at 12-5 so far. The Racers are 6-0 in the last half-dozen games, taking out Cumberland TN, TN-Martin, SEMO, JSU, Tennessee Tech and TN-Martin. 

In the win over the Skyhawks, Murray State’s top scorer was Tevin Brown with 20 points, six assists and four rebounds. KJ Williams posted a double-double there as well with 14 points and 12 rebounds.

Over on the Redhawks’ side, they’re 4-14 this year. SEMO is on a five-game losing streak right now, dropping to Austin Peay, Murray State, Belmont, Tennessee State and Austin Peay again in that time. 

In the loss to the Governors, SEMO’s DQ Nicholas led the team on 16 points, four assists and one rebound. The only other Redhawks player in double-digits there was Nygal Russell with 12 points, four rebounds and two assists. 

The over is 4-0 in the Redhawks’ last four overall and 4-1 in their last five home games. SEMO is 1-7 ATS in their last eight overall and 1-4 ATS in their last five after an ATS loss. 

Meanwhile, the Racers are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 Saturday games and 4-1 ATS in their last five overall. Murray State is 4-1 ATS in their last five after a straight-up win and the over is 5-1 in their last six overall. 

Murray State didn’t have any issues with the Skyhawks, jumping out to a 43-24 halftime lead in the eventual 84-62 victory. During this winning streak, the Racers have been scoring very well, with at least 81 points in five of six games (72 in the other one). 

SEMO has had a couple of good offensive outings lately, but for the most part they’re hanging around in the low-60s these days. I can’t find a ton of reasons not to take the Racers on the cover here.
