10 DIME - MURRAY STATE RACERS - Like the makeup of this Murray State team.

They return 3 starters and 3 other players who saw significant minutes from a squad that went 19-12 last year and found themselves opening the season at Cal as a 13 point underdog.

No worries as they were in the game the whole way before succumbing down the stretch 75-70 easily getting the cover, while outrebounding the bigger Bears 30-28.

No worries as they have sinced reeled off 8 wins in a row SU, and this team is coming together rather nicely led by Ivan Aska, Danero Thomas and Tony Easley cleaning up the glass.

Now they face a Louisiana Tech team coming off a bad effort at Arizona losing 83-67 as a 5 point dog and then followed that up with a very lack luster effort at Centenary.

Facing a squad that is picked last in by everyone in the Summit league, L'Tech had to go to overtime to get a hard fought 102-96 win in a game they allowed 48 first half points and were down 16.

I truly feel Murray State is the better team here and with the linemaker is trying to trap you here with a low 2 point home number, it's a trap I won't fall for this time around.

Going to grab the small dog to take care of business and get the road win for their 9th straight win overall.
