If there were bets taken in November about who would be the last undefeated team in college basketball, absolutely no one would have answered the Murray State Racers.
Chances are, most people didn’t even know where Murray State was. But now, the tiny school in Murray, Kentucky is famous.
The Racers are 20-0 and ranked ninth in the country. Ninth! Overall!
That’s ahead of traditional powerhouses like the Florida Gators, Indiana Hoosiers and Connecticut Huskies.
The question on almost everyone’s mind now is whether or not Murray State is for real.
Will the Racers finish the season without a loss? When the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament starts, will they lose by 20 in the first round? Or could the team make it to the championship game?
My answer? Watch out, NCAA, Murray State is coming to crash the postseason. Here is why the Racers are a legitimate Final Four threat.
