No one, big budget or small budget, school will want to see their name next to ours come March. This team has the tools to beat any team they are matched up with in March. If we are indeed given an 11 or 12 seed the higher seed will complain and they will have every right to given our results this season. You give us 40 minutes of a healthy Ja and we beat Belmont every time.

"12. You should know Ja Morant. The player getting the most attention outside of Durham is a 6’ 3”, 175-pound sophomore guard from Murray State who has played his own way toward the top of NBA draft boards, averaging 24.1 points, 10.2 assists, 5.6 rebounds, and 2.0 steals per game. Morant is an impressive athlete with impressive court vision and IQ who the Racers discovered in part by chance. Murray State will likely need to win the Ohio Valley to ensure a spot in the tourney, which it is more than capable of doing, but Morant is the rare star who could give a double-digit seed the best player on the floor."

I don't know how things will pan out with Ja's career, but people would be smart to hold on to anything signed by him in college. I do agree that it's wrong for people to want him to sign a bag of basketballs so someone can turn a profit. That's pretty low.

Over on the Peay board...

Now I will preface this by saying I’ve not watched Morant before tonight. He did not look all that impressive. At least not a Top 5 draft pick. Maybe it was the scouts or being on ESPN2, but it seemed he was trying way too hard.

The guy is playing on a bum ankle and still gets 32 points. What an effing insult. He must be honest in saying he hasn't seen Morant before last night. He'd be about the only basketball fan in America to do so.

Honestly RL I have seen comments like that on several message boards after we played them. It comes down to folks with low basketball IQs who don’t realize that he is being doubled and triple teamed all game long and still puts up 32-6-7 lol.

What would you expect from a fanbase that chants “ball hog” at the leading assist man in America

Here’s some TRUTH for the low basketball IQ idiot fans we have already played and have yet to play lol. You’d have to have an IQ lower than your shoe size to yell “ball hog” to the nation’s assist leader. Like dumb asf.

The ironic part is that the one's calling Ja a ball hog and booing, etc are the exact ones that specifically paid to go see him play. Trust me, he's heard it all. From ball hog to overrated. The fact is that almost every team in Division I would kill to have him on their team.

In talking with some random people in NYC and Philly the last few days, they all knew about Ja and Murray State U. racers. Sidenote, yesterday was so warm in Philly I had to use my ac in truck. I get home 5:30 am and Paducah is iced in. lol

Nobody at the college level has come close to hitting those benchmarks, and only James Harden has done it in the pros.

Morant is vying to become the first player since assist leaders were recognized to average 20 points and 10 assists over a season.

Only 10 players in the past 25 years have even averaged 16 and 8.

plus on 40 minutes a game and double teamed. nba general manager loves how Ja will sell tickets at their home arena.

Found another gem on the EKU board.

Of all the people I know in Kentucky I don’t think more than 2 of them have ever heard of Mayo or Morant. But my experience may not be typical.

How is this possible? No, really...how? If you are a fan (in any capacity) of the the NBA and/or college basketball, you've heard of Morant. The guy had an entire four to six page spread in print in Sports Illustrated. His highlights are shown on cable news outlets, that rarely show sports. The blue and white fans up the road from Richmond know Ja. The self absorbed boobs in Bowling Green know Ja. The nation knows Ja. Some of the world knows Ja. Now Mayo on the other hand...great player in a lousy program. I hope he catches on somewhere. He has excellent ability.
