After the Murrary State University Racers' win today against Vanderbilt, I decided the nation is ready to learn a little bit more about the team and what their chances are of advancing past the second round of the 2010 NCAA Tournament.
"Murray State University, located in the city of Murray, Kentucky, is an approximately 10,000-student, four-year public university. Murray State maintains a strong academic reputation." (Wikipedia.org )
"Murray State University features 15 varsity sports teams. Both men's and women's teams are called the Racers, with the exception of the baseball team which is known as the Thoroughbreds. They participate in the NCAA's Division I, in the Ohio Valley Conference." (Wikipedia.org )

Second Round Chances
In the next round Murray State plays the winner of the Butler/ UTEP matchup. The game will be held on Saturday.
Even though I didn't have them in my bracket, Murray State could definitely advance past the second round. I don't see them making it past the third round with a possible matchup against Syracuse looming.
