Not for sure but I think that was the same group that was at the SEMO game with those same signs. If so they had saw Ja at Carbondale (where they were from), Cape, and now Murray. I can live with kids like that wanting to see the best point guard in the Nation any time they can.

I’d say the athletic department is more than happy to take their money.

AP has a great team and that's all they can haul in on a Saturday? I can also bet that Morehead number is inflated by probably 1k.

OVC site says attendance last night was 4864. That’s double from the previous Saturday night attendance mentioned previously on this thread. Just looking at the crowd in photos and watching last night, I’d say it was about the same as last year’s tornado game. Way to go Racer Nation.

Those kids with that sign are SIU fans from Carbondale who became Morant fans and have been following him around to Cape, Edwardsville and now Murray.
