While the Selection Show is still eight days away, we already have a ticket punched to the NCAA Tournament.

The Murray State Racers are going dancing, after taking down Belmont in the Ohio Valley Conference Championship on Saturday night in Evansville.

Murray State is 26-5 (16-2 in conference play), and currently has the nation’s longest winning streak at 13 games. The Racers are led by senior stars Jonathan Stark 24 points tonight; 21.7 per game) and Terrell Miller Jr. (14.8 points, 8.3 rebounds per game), and terrific freshman guard Ja Morant (12.6 points, 6.7 rebounds, 6.5 assists).

Matt McMahon’s squad has all the makings of a potential Cinderella, and are certainly a team that nobody wants to face in the first round.
