Murray State comes into this game with a 29-2 record overall and they have won 19 straight games. On Friday, Murray State faced off with Southeast Missouri State, and it wasn’t much of a contest as the Racers were able to win by 14 points. The Racers are averaging 79.3 points while their defense is giving up 61.7 points per game. Murray State wants to get out and run, but they are also a strong defensive team that can really lock down. Forward KJ Williams has been the best player for Murray State averaging 18.2 points while shooting 54.4 percent from the field and 31.3 percent from behind the three point line. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Morehead State Eagles who sit with a 22-10 record overall and they have won two games in a row. On Friday, Morehead State almost blew the game late, but they held on to secure the 53-51 victory over Belmont. Morehead State is averaging 70.6 points while their defense is giving up 63.6 points per game. Johni Broome has been the top player this season for Morehead State averaging 16.5 points while shooting 55.4 percent from the field. There are three different players that are averaging at least 10 points per game. 

The last time these two teams faced off it was a low scoring game, and these are both defenses that can be very stingy. In this game look for both defenses to lock down, and that will lead to this game being lower scoring. Back the under to cash.
