2-7 AWAY                                9-1 HOME

Last Meeting at Murray, KY :
SIU Defeated Murray 63 TO 57 Ending Murray's 20-Game Home Winning Streak and giving Coach Steve Prohm his ONLY loss to SIU.

Keys to the game.....

  • Take care of the Ball - SIU excels at steals and forced turnovers, so they've got busy hands that pay off.  We must take care of the ball when handling it and especially watch the lazy/telegraphed passes which lead to transition baskets.
  • Guard the perimeter -                                                         

    • 90.8% of Brown's shots are 3's. 
    • 80.8% of Wonders' shots are 3's. 
    • 62.5% of Ferguson's shots are 3's. 
    • 59.3% of Jones' shots are 3's. 
    • 54.2% of Johnson's shots are 3's. 
    • 53.4% of D'Amico's shots are 3's. 
    • 52.1% of Banks' shots are 3's. 
    • 50.6% of Newton's shots are 3's.
    3.  Keep those hands active on Defense -
        SIU averages 13 Turnovers per game, but last  game out
        against us, they only had 4.
        That's 9 opportunities lost!
    4. Aggressively attack the basket
      We rank #1 in the MVC in Free Throws Made Per Game and
      we're getting there by being aggressive and going to the rim.

Keys to the game.....

Regarding shooting, MTSU average a very good 46.43% from the field.
This might be a good game to get some minutes in for Sam Murray and Marlon Lestin and use their length to make their shooting efficiency go down.

Regarding 3-point shooting, we have the capability to shoot better.  We just need to go with the flow instead of all the head-fakes and back-steps.

Regarding FT shooting, we can do better than 68.42%.

Regarding Steals, They take the ball away 9 times per game so it is important for us to protect the dribble.

Regarding STORTO, The numbers suggest they get 2 more opportunities than we.  Take that away from them and this is a likely a Racer victory!

Regarding fouls, They are prone to fouling, especially when driving to the rim so aggressiveness could work out for us.

If we're rebounding and not turning the ball over, hitting an average percentage from the field and limiting our fouls, we could win this game by double-digits, which is what the ranking systems need to see.

Right now, we are in the driver's seat for the best chance of an at-large bid but we cannot lose to these types of teams.

Bellarmine is dangerous and they've played the 2nd hardest schedule in the country to date.

Rebounding and attacking the basket and getting to the Free Throw Line are the keys to winning this game.

And Hey!.....Go Racers!!!

The Racers traveled to Martin, Tennessee to take on the perennial OVC Powerhouse Skyhawks.

The Racers were 4-point underdogs going into this game but came away with a very satisfying 19-point win 71-52!

I can't say enough about what a breath of fresh air Coach Turner has been for a program that has been an afterthought for too many years!

Great Job to the coaches and players!

Keep the wins rolling in!!!
