Murray State @ Tulsa

Current Records: Murray State 2-2; Tulsa 2-2

What to Know

The Tulsa Golden Hurricane will take on the Murray State Racers at 10:30 a.m. ET Sunday at HTC Center. Both teams are out to turn their luck around after having lost tight contests in their previous games.

It was close but no cigar for Tulsa as they fell 68-65 to the Charlotte 49ers this past Friday. Guard Sam Griffin (21 points) was the top scorer for the Golden Hurricane.

Speaking of close games: MSU lost 71-69 to the Massachusetts Minutemen this past Friday on a last-minute half-court bomb from UMass' guard Noah Fernandes with 0:01 left to play. Despite the loss, MSU got a solid performance out of guard JaCobi Wood, who had 24 points in addition to five rebounds.

The losses bumped both teams down to an identical 2-2. Neither Tulsa (1-0 after losses) nor the Racers (also 1-0) has made a habit of hanging their heads after losses this season, so another slip-up will be unusual territory for either team.
