Looking for advice regarding seating at SEMO. I may be going with a couple of others, depending on the weather. Is there a section that Racer fans as assigned, or just where ever you get in. I've looked at the arena seating, and it doesn't look like they up-charge for our game. We won't make a decision until tomorrow morning, so too late to get tickets here probably. If there are any left. Thanks for any input.

Murray box office was selling tickets in section 106, which would be behind the Racer bench.

Forecast right now for Cape is snow starting this afternoon around 3 then switching over to rain overnight, then 40 degrees and raining by noon tomorrow. Hope this holds true, if so the drive should be ok.

They now have a beer garden type set up next to the visitors bench. I think it’s $45.00 per seat not including food and drink. They have moved the band and students to the home team end zone.

EIU does something similar on one end of arena on upper concourse with bar tables overlooking the court during the games. I’d probably enjoy something like that for a high school event like Hoopfest, but that’s a little nonchalant for Racer games.

Can I interest you in some spaghetti and a gently pre-owned Buick?

Should be plenty of seats. Semo usually doesn't sell out, even when they have a good season. Also the weekend, so a lot of the students will be gone.

Any word on the teams travel plans/them getting in safely? This snow storm is no joke! I’m 30 minutes west of St. Louis and we’re at 12+ inches with more to come today. Saying we might get an ice glaze this afternoon with then more snow tonight on top of that.

I came into town and drove by the arena around 3 pm yesterday and they were loading the bus. Cape only got a couple inches overnight but I’m sure the team had already did a shootaround in the SMC by then. Roads are fine today gonna be mid-40s.

Way too many second chance points given up. Way too many wide open SEMO shots. They need to keep on the gas and turn the screws until there's no doubt of the outcome.

Love this team, but in the first games of the year we were all talking about how this was one of the best defensive Murray State teams we had seen in a long time... what happened?

Cannot play poor perimeter defense against SEMO.

They can shoot the rock.
