The first game of the second round of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament will be played between the #11 seed Colorado State (20-11) and the #6 seed Murray State (30-1). This West Regional matchup will begin today at 12:15 PM EST.
The Murray State Racers were the last team this season to lose a game. Many experts are discrediting the fact that they went 30-1 due to a weak schedule, but having that great of a record is still pretty good. Murray State is led by the dynamic backcourt duo of Isaiah Canaan (19.2 ppg, 47.3 3-pt %) and Donte Poole (14.2 ppg). The Racers also have balance on the inside with Ivan Aska (10.9 ppg, 5.7 rpg). Murray State lives up to their nickname as they are the best transition team in the nation.
Colorado State has been under the radar for the entire season, but they have an awesome backcourt as well: Wes Eikmeyer (15.6 ppg) and Dorian Green (13.5 ppg, 43.3 3-pt %). Colorado State has beaten three ranked teams this season, so they can rise to the occasion against competition that is perceived to be better by the experts.
