No. 11 Murray State accomplished its season-long goal of reaching the NCAA tournament. Now, the Racers must wait and wait and wait to see what comes next.
Senior guard Donte Poole says he's already lived the longest 1.1 seconds of his life over the final play of their victory in the Ohio Valley Conference tournament championship on Saturday, but the coming days might be even longer.
The earliest Murray State (30-1) will play again is next Thursday -- a layoff of at least 11 days.
In the meantime, coach Steve Prohm plans scrimmages, weightlifting sessions and other things to keep the Racers sharp.
He also believes Murray State can make a case for a 2 seed, while most pundits predict the Racers will pull between a 4 and 6 seed.
